Not my experience. With my last 5 dogs I have slept with them for the first three nights on the floor in a sleeping bag next to my bed so they learn not to sleep in MY bed. Then after that me in my own bed and pup in a large box with some of my cloths from that day, then after two more nights, in the crate next to my bed. At 12 weeks they all were fine in their crates in the living room with the other (crated) dogs. None ever developed sep. anxiety. It is normal and natural for puppies to sleep in close contact with each other at that age. It actually gives them the security they need at that age and it is sooooo good to sleep with a new puppy, good for bonding. Enjoy your little one.
And, everyone gets the sleep they need so no night marish situations.

FortheLoveofChari They make 'stuffed animals that simulate the heartbeat of another. You can put warmed water bottles in them too. They might help comfort her in her crate. Also put maybe a stuffed kong in there to entertain her. When she's being nippy let her know it isn't okay by making a noise to distract her then give her something she can nip and chew on.

owens91 [QUOTE=onyx'girl;5233754]how old is this puppy exactly? Do you know anything about her or her breeder(why they let her go so young, were there littermates?) Have you been reading the puppy threads? If you do a google search with the key words "singleton puppy", there are many links to view.
You don't want to raise a pup that is totally dependent on you, as separation anxiety may develop.
The balance of dependence and independence is important, especially when this pup doesn't have littermates to interact with.[/QUO

born valentines day so around a little over a month. i dont why the people gave the dog to my friend in the first place i just know that i haveher now. the only littermate she seems to have now is my gf's 1 year old yorkie, but he seems to be scared on Aries (puppy) im guessing that she nibs at everything. still trying to figure out how to stop that

FortheLoveofChari Okay, I see where a lot of people are coming from but seltzer is right when it comes to vaccines. Even if you go off worst case scenario shooting a 4 -5 week old pup with vaccines can do more damage than good. The logical thing to do is to wait two weeks and treat him/her as a newborn. Dont over expose to the outside and play it safe. Let the vet do yhe check over and specify how young she/he is. If the vet is smart and understands they wouldn't push to vacc. so early either. You're very kind to give this young pup a home, and your yorkie is a blessing for this puppy.
