I have always had their beds next to ours when they were puppies, I didn't leash them though, just closed the bedroom door so they can't leave. In terms of crying because they can no longer feel and be around their litter mates, I would just reach down and and give them a neck massage of a stroke and tell them to 'go sleep', they usually settle down. In terms of crying for toilet, make sure they go just before you go to bed and then if they wake up a few hours later, take them outside.
if your GSD is eating and eating and eating and losing weight - please consider testing for EPI.
