O.T/ dog people question
How do you get a pup to sleep through the night. I just got a jack Russell pup from a neighbor who bought him and ended up over her head and wanted to take him to a shelter. I have a really big heart and am a known animal lover. I know alot of the shelters around here are high kill plus I doubt even the ASPCA would take a pup that hasnt had all its shots. Long story short I gave DH the puppy dog eyes and the promise of a little extra special night time treat. He caved and now we have a new pup.
I cant get him to relax. I think he is scared of our two dobbies because he barks like crazy when hey get near him. My dobbies are older dogs. They are just chill and playful they love their sleep lol and hardly ever bark unless they feel threatend. When I first rescued them they just instantly meshed and got comfy. The Dobbies usually follow DH into the room at night and curl up on their beds in their spots and nod off. This pup isn't having it. He has been active all day but wine down. He keeps barking pissing off the dobbies and DH who are trying to sleep. I made myself a place on the couch trying to see if he will feel better away from the other dogs and calm down. He is still barking and running around.
I apologize if this was a long blog. Any tips?
