Default New Puppy Howls and Barks All Night

Hello! I've joined today. I've just got a collie cross puppy from my brother. Her name is Harley and she is ten weeks old. We've had her since Sunday and she has done nothing but howl & bark all night long, I'm worried that my neighbours are

Will this stop? How long does it take before they settle down? She also does the same when you leave her to go upstairs or do anything

Hello and welcome to the forum. Great to have you with us. Congratulations on your new puppy. Have you considered crate training your puppy? Giving your pup a "safe place" that is comfortable & fun may help the adjustment.

There is a good thread on the topic of Crate Training: HERE

Hi Harley Trouble and

At ten weeks she is still a little baby. Keep in mind it was not that long ago she had several littermates (I assume !) and now she feels lonely. It will take some adjusting before she gets used to her new life.
Where is she sleeping now?

Hello and thanks for the warm welcome.

She's in the dining room of an open plan house! she has her bed (blankets that her mums had, one of my tops) plus toys, food and water! She's fairly quiet now so I'm hoping she will settle tonight!

hi and welcome, im fairly new here to. i got my pup on monday, and luckily ive had no problems with him howling at night, i think this is mainly coz he was so tired, he was travelling constantly for nearly 2 days b4 we got him, he whimpered a little, but was fine after a few mins. maybe try to tire her out b4 bed time, im no expert tho so i may be well off the mark here, so if i am n anyone is reading this, pls let me know.
also, where did she sleep the first night u had her??

Kaw, I definitely think your pup being so tired helped & I think giving lots of exercise to a pup before bedtime is an excellent idea to help calm a howler.

She has slept in the dining room since we got her on Sunday. I do take her our for half an hour before settle down time but it makes no difference! I've been out and bought her a radio to see if hat calms her down. Considering moving her to the kitchen also as it's furthest away from the neighbours wall (They have been round to complain)

Another thing to do is take an old t-shirt or something that smells like you and leave it in her sleeping quarters. It helps with the separation anxiety. Above all, it just takes time. Sometimes its a couple of days, sometimes its a couple of weeks. Just like kids, dogs mature at different intervals.

i got it right, yay. lol. its a good thing she was in the dining room the first night you had her, or i think she's be much worse now.
i guess its just going to take time, and patience. when she is howling, do you go in and try to calm her, or do you leave her?
