Hiya I have a 11 week old Merle cockerpoo and he’s a nightmare at night he’s in the bedroom with us, but we have to get up at 1am then 4am then 6am. Yes he is asking to go out, but sleep deprived!
Also he bites our toes and socks and hands and the answers back when I say no!
He eats things in the garden, eats slate so have to chase him round to get it out his mouth, help!

He is still a baby and they all develop at different rates for sleeping overnight, make sure he toilets both wee and poo before bed and when you go out in the night you need minimal interaction then back in crate.

No means nothing to him, divert him onto playing with toys not toes and teach him to let got of things when you ask and that will be much more meaningful.

As for eating things in the garden all pups do it is how they explore the world, but at the moment it sounds like he has learned that grabbing some slate is a great way to get a good game out of you. Instead ignore the majority of his picking stuff up and give him tons of attention for playing with things he can play with.

Enroll in some good puppy classes - APDT is best place to look for good reward based classes.

Have you considered finding him a new home? 🐩<--Little Lucy Lou
