Hi all. I am sure this has been asked a thousand times but I thought who better to ask than other chi owners.
We just brought Mojo home last weekend. He is 8 weeks old. He was sleeping in a crate w his brothers and sister previously. When i brought him home i bought him a little crate. I got up every few hours to take him potty.
He did ok going in and going to sleep at the beginning of the night. But then after potty he would howl and cry.
I have made him a comfy home in my utility room. His crate, a potty patch, a small fan for noise. This is where my min pin sleeps in her bed.
He started sleeping longer the last two nights. from about 1030 to 430 am. Then he wants to freak out and howl until i go get him. I know I am not supposed to but i dont want him waking the whole house.
I think I am going to have to bite it and let him howl tonight though. I dont know what else to do. I can let my min pin sleep w me until he sleeps through the night. She could care less where she sleeps but she growls at him from under her blanket when he starts his howling. So i hate to coop her up w that again.
Maybe shut the door, shut MY door, and try to tough it out.
What do you think? Any advice? I feel sorry for the little guy but he cant sleep w me neither of us sleep well if he does.
HELP! Im desperate for sleep! I have to get up and go to work at 6am every day.
