    We've had our little cooker spaniel pup for 3 weeks now, he's 11 weeks old. We're doing well with him, his biting is less frequent and is fully housetrained. The only issue we have with him is his crying.
    We used to put him in a crate in the living room when we first had him but he was ill the first couple of weeks, kept soiling himself in the crate and since it was diarrhoea it went everywhere. So now we have him in the kitchen with his dog bed. Was easier to clean up when he did an accident but if I'm honest I never wake up to them now.
    He's perfect when we go up to sleep, doesn't cry and just gets on with it. But in the morning he can hear us and he cries out like mad. I normally have a shower etc before coming down to him, he's excited to see me, then he just goes mental and starts biting everything in sight.
    Is it normal behaviour? I was thinking of putting him back in his crate now he's better at night, the living room is tucked away from other rooms but the kitchen looks out onto the hallway, no door just a baby stair gate

    It might be better if you could pop down to your pup before having your shower, take him out to toilet, give him his breakfast and while he is eating that then go and have your shower. If you want to reintroduce the crate try feeding him in there especially in the morning whilst you are showering.
    I’m amazed your pup is holding on to his wee whilst he can hear you moving about upatairs in the morning.
    His manic behaviour is just overexcitement and overstimulation

    Agree with Siskin, you first priority is your pup . What his name by the way ?
    You're very lucky he doesn't cry at night and that he can hold his wee that long at such a young age .
