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 puppy crying will get him cuddles!
  • If wanting them to sleep in separate rooms then avoid letting them sleep in your room, otherwise they will ask for it again!
  • Never use your puppy’s bed as a punishment, this could create stress at bedtime.

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 in your home yet!

Imagine how this transition can be overwhelming for your new family member! But no matter what, you need to teach your puppy to sleep through the night, and to be very consistent in this training.  There are many different training methods to help you and if in doubt, get advice from your vet, trainer or behaviourist.

ADAPTIL Junior releases “comforting messages” like the ones sent by the mother dog after birth.  These naturally calm and reassure your new puppy just like when they were with their mother.

Using ADAPTIL Junior is clinically proven to reduce the number of nights with puppy crying or whining.

It will comfort your puppy at night and help your puppy learn faster to sleep through the night.
