Hey, so on Sunday we got a 11 week old cocker spaniel puppy. I have wanted a puppy for forever (literally forever!!) and was so excited. I got her home and realized petty much the same i was not at all prepared for this. I have been having such bad anxiety and panic attacks and secretly worried I made a horrible decision. I have read a lot of info on this and i know its normal but im worried because its has only been 2 or 3 days.... 1. We tried crate training the first night and i slept (not really but i tried to) next to her crate and she whined pretty much all night except for maybe 3 hours. The second night my fiance had her sleep on the couch to stop the whining and he took her out 3 times and she was perfectly okay and slept through the night without a noise. I am not sure what to do tonight but we both need sleep. Please help! Is it okay to have her sleep with us or should we sleep upstairs the the crate down stairs? We have cats who are scared of her and they are upstairs so we cant put the crate in the bedroom. 2. Day to day life: I found a friend who is going to come to our house during the day because with our commute she would be alone for 10.5 hours a day and thats insane. My friend lives far so i know some days may be hard which i am worried about (we are paying her but still). So my back up plan is a family friend who works 2 days during the week. Is it insane to worry about a back up back up plan? 3. I am so anxious i mean i want to be able to move about the house but when i leave the room she whines. How can i fix this? Please just send puppy blues help because i have cried 3 times today and I cannot see myself last a few weeks or a month like this.
