Treating dogs with severe separation anxiety

Personal protection puppy training
Step 5Ignore your puppy's nighttime barking and howling when you know it's not a signal that she needs to go out to the bathroom. Like having a baby of your own, getting a new puppy is a commitment to sleepless nights for a while. While she won't be able to go all night without a trip to the bathroom at first anyway, giving her food and drink before bed makes it more urgent and may necessitate multiple overnight trips out. Crating is comforting to your new puppy, and she'll bark and howl less if she doesn't feel completely alone. Your leash, flashlight, slippers, a plastic baggie and anything else you need should be readily accessible, so you don't have to go searching for them in the middle of the night.


When everyone else is in bed, the house is dark, there's nothing interesting going on anywhere and your puppy feels isolated, so she'll bark and howl.
If yours sleeps away the early evening hours, she'll be full of energy at night, when all you want is to get some sleep.
If you don't want to get your puppy accustomed to sleeping in your room, crate her elsewhere and leave something on that makes a little noise. The less your puppy moves around and gets stimulated, the better the chance she'll go back to sleep instead of starting to bark and howl when you put her back to bed.
The good news is this generally lasts only for three or four months, and you can expedite it with appropriate measures to teach your puppy to sleep through the night.


Play with your puppy in the evening, take her out for a walk and provide an extra toy or two to keep her stimulated and awake. This also helps tire her out for bedtime so she won't be up barking and howling, looking for attention and an outlet for her energy. Remember, from a distance, you'll have to be extra attentive for signs your puppy needs to go out to relieve herself.
