hello pplz, Any1else from Australia? I have a 11 week old gsd named Diesel, He is great and so easy to training, He does a bit of crying at night but when were trying 2 sleep, Any1esle have this problem aswell.
how OLD is he? Shasta would freak out between about 2 and 3 am and was usually good after a trip to go potty. She would try to play after potty break but learned it was time to sleep instead. Where does your pup sleep?
Shasta whined for a good month and a half in the middle of the night until she figured out is wasnt working for her. She's now 7 months old.
1) Put his crate where he can see your bed, so he knows where his people are.
2) Put a stuffed animal or something in the crate with him so he can cuddle up to it.
3) Don't let him drink too late at night...reduce the pressure on his little bladder.
Beyond that...it just takes patience and a stern voice (don't yell...just be stern...)
