Default Sleeping Arrangements and behaviour

Ollie came to us at 16 weeks old so in some ways it was good for us but also bad in some ways for him

He has done well so far but getting him to socialise and sleep on his own is proving a little difficult.

Sleeping........ We have him downstairs overnight on his own in the dining room. After the first 6 days he started to get used to it and his whining only lasted 10-20 mins however for the past 4 days he has stayed with me at my parents and slept in the bedroom with me in his own bed so now coming back home and being shut downstairs has taken him pretty much back to square one bless him. Anyone know of anything that could help us with this having your own experience?

Behaviour....... Ollie is an absolute diamond around people he knows however when he meets new people he gets very nervous, hides away but has 'gone' for 3 people before he has got used to them and became friends. This obviously worries me and it is through no fault of his own as i feel that he may not have been socialised enough with the breeder before he came to us.

I am on the list for puppy classes but they don't start until April so i am trying to socialise him enough when he comes out with me.

He is just a very nervous boy with new people

is there a reason you don't want him in your bedroom? when I brought Jerry home, he was my only dog. He slept in a crate near my bed. He was quiet other than the usual rolling over or readjust his blankets. When Tabitha came home a few weeks later, I moved them both into the family room in crates next to each other for the overnight hours. We still do the same. Everyone is happy Downstairs, overnight may be too lonely for Ollie...

I've always had Daisy in her crate in my room, then i move it downstairs in the morning.. is a pain but shes so young and wakes me up with a squeek i wouldnt hear her otherwise.

With regards to the socialisation and 'going for people' did he actually go for them or play bite? He's probably teething which doesn't help.. Daisy gets jumpy in peoples faces if she's over excited and had to be reminded not to bite. What were his parents temperements like?

I would probably get all strangers to show him a treat.. not get close to him but wait til he goes to them when he does, tell him good boy and give him the treat? I have the opposite problem.. she LOVES everyone.. to the point is annoying walking down the street so i'm starting to ignore people now!

Good luck.
Where in kent are you??

Lily sleeps by my bed,in her own bed.The only time she wakes is when she sees my feet and knows i'm getting up,think they feel secure knowing you're there.Can't you let him sleep in your room ?

Yeah i found having both girls in my room was easier, i could hear if Darla needed out her crate for the toilet too.
Now she sleeps right through and Daisy is in my bed with me, lol
Darla will be joining her once she is fully grown.

Maybe being close to you would help. xx

i would love to have him in my room, i hate hm being downstairs with me but my partner refuses it was one of the conditions of me getting him......i may try to work on him tho lol.

Daisy Doo........he has actually gone to bite! where he feels threatened. His parents temps are brilliant, i got him from an accredited breeder from the kennel club so he is top notch and has many championships in his line.

The breeder says he had shown no signs of being fearful of anyone. He is brilliant with us, my friends and family but if he doesnt know that person and they try to say hello sometimes he is scared.

oh! well, maybe if Ollie is in a crate, your partner won't mind. that's not the same
as having the run of the room or being in the bed

well when i stayed at my parents he slept in his bed and wasn't a problem at all! but he doesn't sleep all night so we would need paper down so i can't see my partner agreeing

We do have a crate for him but dont realy use it anymore, he was only in that for the first week he was here.
