bella is home, and yelping, help!
I got bella on sunday, we have a couple questions. she is 12 weeks old. when we leave the room or are even in the next room where she can see us, she will cry and get herself so worked up she will start yelping and screaming really loudly.
we have been ignoring her, so not to give in and teach her that crying will get her what she wants. our question is, sometimes she can yelp for 20-30 minutes without calming down... are we supposed to ignore her for that long?
our biggest question is, sometimes in the 20-30 minute period she will stop for a minute or two at a time. are we allowed to go in during that period? how long should we wait after she stops yelping to go back in? should we wait until she is quiet for a certain amount of time, like after the entire fit is over? then, is it okay to pick her up and play with her then?
what about when we are in the same room with her and she whines for no reason?
how long on average does it take a puppy to stop screaming and yelping after going to their new home?
thanks for any answers!!!
Amanda and Bella
