Hi everyone. We have had our 8 week old black lab puppy (Charlie) for 3 days and he is doing very well! We have a 12 year old black lab (Ben) who is being very tolerant but we are just looking for some advice about morning routines - if anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated! Both dogs sleep in our conservatory; Ben in his basket, Charlie in his crate. Ben is used to getting up whenever the rest of the house is ready - about 7-9am - and expects to be fed breakfast as soon as someone is awake at that time! However, Charlie's little bladder means that he is whining for the toilet anywhere from 4-5.30am. We fully understand that puppies mean early mornings! But when we go down to let Charlie out to pee, Ben expects to be fed, and Charlie wants to start the day! We are trying to keep Charlie awake at night as long as possible but he is usually asleep at 10pm and can't be convinced to go pee any time after that. So far we have been waiting until Charlie is awake an hour before he is fed (about 5/6am), but this obviously means his daily routine starts early so ends early (with dinner at 7pm). We would like to introduce a routine of feeding both dogs at 7am and just wanted to know if this would be possible? Is there any way we can get Charlie to stay up later (up to midnight) so he wakes up later? Can we push back his meals a bit each day so he is up later and later in the evening? Should we just be getting up to let him pee in the early morning, and then crating him until breakfast for both dogs at 7? (Bit worried Ben will think we are favouring the puppy if he doesn't get fed when we are in to let Charlie out in the morning!) Hope this makes sense amidst all the questions! Any help would be really kind.
