wyoung2153 Sounds like it may be your solution! hope it improves over the next few days, and I think it will!

Angelina03 Sounds like it's working out. Congrats. He is a gorgeous pup. I like your set up and he probably feels closer to you. Sounds like he's already potting trained. That's a big plus. Soon he'll be sleeping through the night. We had the same issues when we got Rocco: no sleep! Putting his crate in our room (a wire crate so he could see us) is what worked for us. He was sleeping through the night by 14-15 weeks. But we took him out to potty as late as possible (10-11 pm) and he had to go first thing in the morning (6-7 am). Also, once his bladder can hold it, a small snack before bed time may help him sleep through the night.

meek He doesn't want to be caged. Let him sleep on the floor next to your bed. He's trying to tell you, get me out of here. My GSDs sleep on the floor right beside me. They sleep like babies!

d4mmo All depends on puppy's needs, type of food, his drive, how much time he spends outdoors, playing,etc
But that sounds about standard for a 12week old

woogyboogy Also, do you think that giving him 1 cup at 7am, 1 cup at 12:30pm, and 1 cup at 5:30pm is to much food at 12 weeks/3 months?

Thanks again!

Thank you for the advice! I never really thought of that but we will definitely start doing it. For the past month, where we haven't gotten any sleep, its been rather hard to be ecstatic when he wakes us up haha but having him give us morning kisses sounds totally worth it!

woogyboogy Thank you all for being so supportive!

Last night was even better! We put him in his enclosed area around 10:30pm and I set my alarm to take him out at 2:10am. He never woke us up from 10:30 to the time my alarm went off at 2:10. I took him out, and he did his business. Then I brought him back in and he passed out within 5-10 minutes. Then he woke us up at 6:15am and was up for the day.

All in all we are extremely happy with how he is doing, and us being able to finally get some sleep is amazing!
