Here`s another great article:
Our 4 m/o puppy has been sleeping through the night for about a month. He goes to bed between 9-10pm and wakes up between 5:30-6pm when my fiancé starts getting ready for work and brings him out. After going out, he comes back in and is allowed to sleep on his soft bed outside the crate from 6-9am.
We lost power this past week and slept downstairs near his crate for the first time since the night we brought him home. He was surprisingly good and went right to sleep even though we were nearby.
On the first night, I walked by for the bathroom at 4:30am. He woke up and wanted to be taken out, so I did. We then made the mistake of letting him sleep in bed with us just for a couple hours. The next night, he woke up at 4 and same thing. Night three, up at 3:30.
Now we’re back upstairs in our bed and he’s woken up at 2:30 last night and 2 tonight. These past two nights, because he’s back in the crate and not in bed presumably, he’s also woken up at 4:30ish again. We take him out and put him right back in the crate.
We know we blew it by letting him sleep in the bed. How to we fix this? Take him out the first time he cries and barks, even if it’s early, and then let him cry out the second time? He always goes to the bathroom the first time he goes outside.
