Babies are cute and nice but sometimes they can be really annoying. Just look how they annoy poor patient dogs 😛 They are just playing but I’m sure dogs don’t like when they climb over them, ride them, scream and so on 😉
Note that a puppy, like a baby, needs a lot of sleep at first, a need that should be taken into account. To help your puppy get used to sleeping at night, it’s best to place the basket by your bed.
If your dog is very restless, you can place an alarm clock under his blanket. The ticking will remind him of his mother’s heartbeat and calm him down. But be sure to check whether this small, cute and supposedly helpless creature is not weak and let the puppy go to bed. You are not doing yourself or the little one any favours with this.
This would already be the first step for the little newcomer to compete with you in the hierarchy. It would be better to stroke him in his basket from your bed to sleep. The tender touch of your hand will give him all the security and trust he needs to slumber as a puppy towards another exciting day and a happy life at your side.
