Three days ago my Mum and I brought home a 9 week old chocolate cockapoo called Prudence. I do not live at home but will be helping out a lot with Pru's care.
I have a lot of questions and was really hoping to get some reassurance and answers!
1. Prudence is a very placid dog and has a lovely temperament, but I’m a little worried at the amount she is sleeping! I know puppies sleep a lot, but this is pretty much all day and I worry that she sleeps all day because she cries all night and will not sleep through the night if she sleeps all day.
2. She is going to sleep in a crate in the utility room, but she really hates it so far. She is crying at night in there and this morning cried from 5am and had messed it pretty bad.
3. She also hates her pen, where she will be kept during the day. There has been someone around until now, but after tomorrow me and Mum have to go back to work so she will be left. She will be checked and taken out at 10.30, 12 and 2pm though and Mum is home at 5.
4. She seems to have mastered weeing outside and poops in the morning but will not go at night, so messes her crate. How can I stop this?!
Thanks in advance! Megan
I am sure someone will be along with lots of advice in a moment but I just wanted to say I love her name! That was on my short list aswell!
Good luck with her and I look forward to hearing how you get on. Have you any photos yet?
