Re: whimpering and crying question
Hi Sandy and Heidi! Congratulations on the new pup.
Give her some time to become accustomed to her new home. She's a teeny baby, so some crying is to be expected for a while.
In general, ignore behaviors that you want to go away (such as crying) and reinforce behaviors that you want to repeat (such as being quiet)
So...when she cries, ignore. (ear plugs?) ;-)
When she is quiet, praise.
You might also want to up that going out schedule to every hour while she's awake. You'll have a better chance of catching her doing it right. 2-4 hours is a long time for a baby.
Good luck and ask lots of questions!
