Soothing a Whining Puppy

If you have a new puppy that whines at night, take a wind up alarm clock and place it in the crate with him. The ticking will soothe him, and you just might get a little sleep!

Just be sure to turn off the alarm feature first! Otherwise, you'll have one poor scared pup when the alarm starts clanging! (07/20/2005)

Also, you can put a hot water bottle with a cover on it with the puppy and the alarm clock. It reminds the puppy of its mother. :) (07/21/2005)

Put the puppy's crate in a place where he can see you so he will know you are there. Also, if it starts whining just put your hand in front of the crate so he can sniff it, but don't say anything to him. (08/09/2005)

Soothing a Whining Puppy

The hot water bottle (even a covered one) and an alarm clock are a bad, BAD idea. Puppies chew...a LOT. Aside from the teething, there is the anxiety issue. They sometimes chew when they're upset. If you put foreign objects in his crate, he may decide to chew on them, and small parts could be swallowed and lodge in his intestines or choke him. Never, never leave a puppy unattended with toys or other (non-pet indicated) items. This is very, very dangerous and has led to many puppies having to have surgery, and even death. I know...I'm a vet. (08/29/2007)
