What to do about puppy whining at night?
a little back ground info, she is 6 weeks old we have her in a wire crate in the kitchen, with a few old t shirts and chew toys. We have a divider in the crate to make the area just big enough for her to get in a turn around. So far I she hasn't had an accident but she does whine all night. She actually whines so much I hate taking her out to potty(which she does just fine) because I feel like I might be re enforcing the whining, even though I only take her out at set intervals. She is guaranteed to be whining at one of those times. Some people suggest moving her into the bed room. Others suggest just putting a puppy pad in her crate and not letting her our all night, however we seem to have no house breaking issues so I am not sure if I want to try that. Anyway I am open to suggestions for a decent nights sleep, I don't mind taking her out to potty every few hours I just don't want her to whine for 6 to 7 hours straight.
Thanks for the help!!!
