Ok...so the crate training didn't go to plan, and Oscar now sleeps in the kitchen. He pees and poohs on newspaper at night by the back door. He wakes up at 5 and then jumps at the kitchen/halldoor, squeaking and scraping. Are we wrong to give him the benefit of the doubt and go down to let him out for a wee? (which he does do). The only problem then is that he then thinks it's time to get up, and makes even more noise if we leave him back in the kitchen. Sense tells me to leave him to make as much noise as he likes, but the lack of sleep dictates otherwise. Last night he did this from 3-4.30am when my husband caved in and went downstairs. My feeling is that a crate in our room would solve many problems (and we should have done this weeks ago) but husband is still not seeing it! Advice on puppy OR husband gratefully received!
