Is the dog house outside? I think you will find that most of us on this site have dogs that sleep in the bedroom. My Effie is 18 months now and she starts in the bedroom but sometimes moves around in the night. A new puppy will want to be as close to you as possible.

Dogs are pack animals and puppies even more so. I'd be more worried if he didn't scream all night to tell his human (pack) that he's been abandoned and is now alone.

Puppies have spent 100% of their entire life around/under/among their littermates and mom. So to be suddenly alone through no fault of their own will cause the normal screaming until we fix the problem and do what a responsible puppy owner should do.

That puppy is now OUR responsibility and needs to be with us when we are home.

CRATE train them with the crate in the bedroom at night and use the crate when you have to leave the home. Otherwise the puppy needs to be IN the house and if you have a new house that is YOUR problem to keep it in good shape. Not the puppy's fault that they need to be isolated and alone.

Puppies are a huge amount of work and will make a mess and chew/ruin stuff. If your new house is more important than the good news is you've only had the puppy for 2 days so the breeder will easily take it back when you explain you got into this not realizing the 24/7 responsibility a puppy will bring to your life.

If this is a wake up call for you and you are willing to completely change your life and accept the new responsibilities, there is a ton of information on http://www.germanshepherds.com/forum...st-time-owner/ that should help you.

And you may want to look at (remember the crate is IN your house/bedroom) What is crate training (why put my puppy in a cage?) and GSD Puppy Primer Tips

Really, though. Crate train.

I've only had Talos since Tuesday, but already he's going into his crate by himself when he wants to have a nap or a bit of chew time. Otherwise I'm constantly watching him, and this weekend, he's getting an xpen. You can definitely have a puppy in a new home if you're willing to make sure he/she isn't into anything.

It only takes a few days for puppy to realize that being in the crate doesn't mean that you're gone forever and they're never getting out. I timed it, and Talos has already gone from crying for 5 minutes or so to crying maybe once, and then laying down. Especially if I've had him running around.

So put the crate in your bedroom, acclimate him to it, and get him used to seeing you in the same room while he's in the crate and short jaunts out of the room so he's used to being in the crate when he can't see you too so he understands that the crate is a happy place and that no matter what, when you leave, you'll be back.
