Hi all, I'm a new member and this is my first post regarding our english lab puppy named Chase. Chase is 9 weeks old and we've had him for 5 days now. We're really struggling with night time sleep in his crate. His crate is in our mudroom just off the kitchen, so it's a quiet space at night but access to people during the day. I've been trying to do crate training with him during the day to help him get comfortable in his new crate but that is slow going and doesn't seem to be translating to him loving his crate at night. We've tried coming up with different schedules for night time sleep - initially we started by putting him in his crate at 10pm after a final potty and he was waking fairly consistently every 1.5 hours all night long. When he wakes he howls and barks and over the last few days it has become more insistent and he is not able to settle after taking him out and recrating him. We've tried putting him in later closer to midnight and he had one night where he slept from 12-5:30am, we tried this again last night but it resulted in him waking every 1.5 hours and when we'd take him out he wouldn't potty and then wouldn't resettle in his crate. We've tried withholding food and water starting at about 7pm, we try giving him lots of exercise and playtime during the day. I fear we are starting to reinforce bad behaviors by taking him out again at night when he's already gone potty and we try really hard not to let him out when he is barking but he's also waking the whole house up and we're all in a total fog and overwhelmed. I've tried reading the training articles and threads on crating and sleep but am new to all of this and trying to juggle being a mom, working and now being a dog mom. Would really appreciate any guidance or links to threads/articles that have helped others or feel free to point out if we're just doing it all wrong - it certainly feels that way right now. Please help, thank you in advance!
