Hello! We got a new puppy a week ago, a 9 (nearly 10) week old cocker spaniel and while we are absolutely in love with her, we're struggling with quite a few things! The main thing is nights. We started her off in her bed (which she is happy in generally) in the kitchen which is gated off to the rest of the house, with her training bad at the other end of the room. She only sleeps for a maximum of 2 hours before she cries and cries (its usually more like an hour) When I go down she is absolutely fine and has already been to the toilet on her pad. She just wants to say hi and then goes back to sleep. I have tried leaving her for as long as possible but she gets really loud and we're mid terrace in an old house with thin walls so worry about the neighbours. Our neighbours lent us a crate last night, which she was happy to go in with her bed and we put a blanket over it to make it darker for her but she still woke up as many times. She's the same during the day if I even leave her for a few minutes. If she's tired she will eventually get in her bed but she won't play alone. I've had this week off work to get her sorted but I don't feel like we're getting anywhere. I'm back at work on Tuesday, I work 2 days a week in my family's shop (and the rest of the week at home) and she will be coming with me so not left alone all day but she'll need to be ok to entertain herself while I'm busy. Looking for any advice and just general reassurance that this does get better! I've been getting so anxious over night that I'm waking up feeling sick. I love her to bits and definitely not regretting getting her, just struggling to see an easier time!
