Puppy Bedtime Top Tips
It’s no secret that sleeping through the night with a new puppy can be almost as difficult as it is with a newborn baby. The good news is it’s easier than you think to get your new puppy sleeping through the night. With a little foresight, planning and a commitment to training, you can have your puppy sleeping through the night in just a few days.
Prepping Your Puppy for Bed
Just as you may have rituals such as brushing your teeth or reading to your child before bed, having set routines with your puppy can help prepare him for sleep and give him something positive to associate with bedtime. If your puppy is wired at night, it could be that he isn’t getting enough stimulation during the day. We recommend exercising your puppy early in the evening, a few hours before bedtime, this should help your puppy tire out and ready to go to bed by stimulating him mentally and physically, he should be more content and it will help him crash and want to rest. We recommend stimulating your puppy a few hours before bedtime, which could be mentally or physically and this should prepare your puppy to want to go to sleep. We suggest throwing a toy, playing a game of hide-and-seek or experimenting with name recognition where family members form a circle and take turns calling your puppy. When he comes to you, reward him with dog treats or his favorite toy.
Try Soothing Sounds
Playing soothing music before and during bedtime can help alleviate whining and anxiety as well as drown out other noise or unfamiliar sounds that may upset or rouse your puppy.
Surround Your Puppy With Familiar Objects
If possible, put an article of clothing like a t-shirt, with the scent of the home or environment your puppy came from next to him while he sleeps. It will help give him something familiar to identify with and help him ease into the transition of his new home. You can also send a toy to your puppy in advance of his transition to his new home. Over a few days, the smell will gradually dissipate, which allows him to gradually get used to the smells associated with your home.
Crate Your Puppy Overnight
The easiest and nearly full-proof way for training a puppy to sleep through the night is to use a dog crate. Place the crate near your bed in an area close to you. Start by putting your puppy in the crate for a bit before it’s time to go to sleep. Darken the room. Then go quietly to sleep and don’t make a fuss over going to bed. Your puppy will fall asleep when you fall asleep because he’s right there next to you. He can smell you. If he starts crying you can put your hand next to him. After your puppy gets used to the crate by your bed, you can gradually move him out of your bedroom if you don’t plan to have him sleep near you every night. You can introduce your puppy to his crate by putting him in it throughout the day and rewarding him with treats and dog toys, so he gets used to the space and doesn’t associate it with a negative experience.
Middle of the Night Potty Breaks
Until your puppy is potty trained he will likely wake you up because he needs to go outside. We'd recommend lining your puppy’s crate with a pee pad is a good idea. Although dogs usually don’t like to soil the area they sit or sleep in. If he’s in a crate next to you he’ll probably wake you up first and let you know before he goes. If you or your puppy is an especially sound sleeper you might even want to set an alarm to avoid accidents in the crate.
Gradually, your puppy will build bladder control and should be able to sleep through the night without needing to go to the bathroom as frequently. A good rule of thumb is that puppies can usually hold their urine for their age in months plus one, converted to hours. In other words, a 3-month-old puppy can generally go for four hours without urinating. So, if you sleep for eight hours, you’ll need to get up once during the night to let your 3-month-old puppy out to pee.
