PUPPY SLEEP SCHEDULE: SLEEP TIME AND LOCATION

Your puppy will need time to sleep to assist with her development. A puppy sleep schedule with consistent times and locations can help. At times you may need to encourage her. When you think she is likely to settle:

  • Calmly put her in her bed, give her a few minutes to settle and then leave her securely in the room.
  • She may whine or make a fuss when you close the door; it is important that you ignore this behavior. She should willingly go to sleep if she is tired.

Choose wisely where your new puppy sleeps. If you allow her to pick her own spot and you don’t agree, it will be difficult to change her mind in the future.

The ideal sleep spot is:

  • In a designated area with suitable dog bedding
  • Where she can still feel included in family life
  • Not in a draft
