My new gsp (Jasmine) is doing pretty well at night. She goes down to sleep from about 9 to 12 or 1 and then the barking/whining begins. So I get up and hold her, calm her down and when she is falling back to sleep she goes back to bed. That keeps her quiet until about 5:30-6 am. I think it will get better when she is a little older and we can actually crate her all night. Right now she is in the kitchen blocked off with baby gates (she's only 7 weeks, so there are puppy pads down for her and I was told not to crate her until she is a little older and can hold her bladder??? Is this right? She has access to her crate and goes in to it to sleep sometimes, but mostly she likes the baby blanket on the floor to sleep with for long periods. I would love to crate her and have her next to my bed, is it too early for that?
