HOW CAN YOU HELP YOUR PUPPY GET TO SLEEP?
Help him get plenty of exercise during the day – Stimulate your puppy’s mind and body with age-appropriate activities and toys
Keep bedtime calm – Try to avoid intense games of tug or other exciting activities that get your puppy aroused and amped up within the last half hour or so before bedtime.
Make sure he has peed and pooped – An “empty” puppy will sleep much longer than one who needs to go.
Make his crate comfortable – Many dogs enjoy soft blankets, to curl up with at night in their dog crate. Consider the temperature and time of year when choosing the bedding that will be most comfortable for your pup:
Give him something to chew on – Chewing is a calming activity that all dogs enjoy; even more so when your puppy is teething
Keep your puppy’s crate close by you – so that they aren’t alone and you will hear if they wake up in the night.
