How to stop puppy crying at night

I want to help my puppy with crying at night



Reduce crying and whining at night with ADAPTIL Junior

  • Clinically proven to reduce nighttime crying.
  • Improvement happens within the first week.
  • Continued use for at least one month after adoption is recommended.

Create the perfect “puppy bedroom”

  • Choose a warm and comfortable sleeping space for your puppy with a bed or a blanket.
  • In his bed, place something that smells of you like an old t-shirt.

Prepare for bedtime

  • Dinner 3 hours before bedtime.
  • Active play and walks 2 hours before bedtime.
  • Then gradually begin to calm down.

What NOT to do

  • If your puppy cries, wait to see if he settles instead of coming to pet him. Otherwise your puppy could learn the wrong lesson:  that crying will get him cuddles!
  • Never ever take your puppy into your bedroom, otherwise they will ask for it again!
  • Never use your puppy’s bed as a punishment.  This could create stress at bedtime.

We recommend:


Place the collar on your puppy right after adoption, and keep it on your puppy’s neck at all times.

Why do puppies cry at night?

Sometimes, your puppy would prefer to play, or is simply not sleepy, and certainly doesn’t want to be alone. This day and night routine is also new to them. And last but not least, he misses his mother and siblings a great deal, and has not settled into your home yet!

Imagine how overwhelming this transition can be for your fluffy ball! But no matter what, you need to teach your puppy to sleep through the night, and to be very consistent in this training.

ADAPTIL Junior releases “comforting messages” like the ones sent by the mother dog to naturally calm and reassure her new puppies.

Using ADAPTIL Junior is clinically proven to reduce the number of nights with crying or whining. It will comfort your puppy at night and help your puppy learn faster to sleep through the night.
