Why does my puppy wake up crying?

The easiest way to provide this comfort and eliminate crying is to allow your puppy to sleep with you in your bed.
How do I get my dog to stop whining in his crate in the morning?

How do I keep my puppy quiet in the morning?

Should I wake up if my puppy is crying?
If your puppy does wake up and cry, first make sure they don’t need the toilet (many young puppies won’t be able to hold their bladder through the night yet). Then gently settle them back down in their bed. Try not to give them too much fuss and attention – just enough to make them feel comforted.

What time should puppy go to bed?

How do I get my puppy to sleep longer in the morning?
You can use an alarm to wake your dog in the morning. Each day, set this alarm 15 minutes later than he normally wakes. Over time, he might get used to the new time, especially if he is in your room and can hear the alarm. Turn on a ceiling or standing fan or create white noise to help your dog sleep longer.
