9 Week Old Puppy Won't Sleep Alone?

I have a 9 week old Pit mixed with Chihuahua. It is very hard to get my pup to sleep. She whines a lot when she lays by herself. How do I make her sleep by herself and not with me in the bed?

You should give her something with your scent on it. Make sure it is something she can cuddle in. This is important,it is the warmth and scent of you she craves! For the first week make a place for her near you,than make her a permanent place of your choosing later!

You can wrap a ticking alarm clock in a towel and put it in her bed.

Poor pup misses its birth mum and may also be a little hungry!!

When I had this challenge, I fed her a very small meal (just a few bites of her soft food since she had outgrown mother's milk), then I used a thick fleece blanket in the crate, along with a stuffed duck (nothing she could bite off--no eyes etc.), then I put the crate next to my bed and put an old fashioned alarm clock OUTSIDE the crate on the side where she liked to lay her little head down.

This worked most of the time. The few times it did not work, I slept on the floor with my hand in the crate. Yes, I was a helicopter mother, but it only took a few times to do this and she outgrew the whining. Feeding her a small amount at night was the most effective of the things I did.

8 weeks is SO YOUNG. Hopefully your sweet pup will outgrow it quickly.

A friend had this problem. Put a clock that quietly ticked and a heating device under his little quilt worked great

You can try several things. If you have a bed for the dog make sure you have lined it with a blanket. Now under the blanket you can put in a heating pad and set it to very low heat. The puppy misses his mom and is looking for comfort that he finds in you. Most people say to put an clock with them so the puppy can heat the ticking of the clock. This does work but you can also get a few stuffed dog toys to add to the bed I find out this one works well too.

Be very careful with heating pads. There have to be places so the puppy can get off of them to cool down in case they get overheated.
