Question: I have 3 Griffon puppies that are 4 months old, they sleep in the kitchen at night and one of them cries a lot during the night how can I stop him?


A really good approach to crying puppies, other than the usual techniques of ignoring them or giving in and moving them into your bedroom is this. Try walking into the kitchen for 60 seconds and ignoring them, no speaking touching or looking at them. Then leave calmly and quietly. This gives them the message that 1. you are alive, 2. you can hear their whining and 3. you are relaxed and not worried or bothered about anything. It is one of the best ways to get them to calm down. Picking them up and cuddling them is likely to only make it worse! Sometimes a little tough love early on goes a long way…Doggy Dan
