First nights at home

June 25, 2020, 1:31 PM

Our yorkie puppy is 9 weeks and this is our second night with her. Both nights she has slept in her crate and has cried numerous  times throughout the night.  I placed the crate in the kitchen. Do you recommend a better place to place her crate for her to sleep at night? Also, should I leave food and water in her crate for the night time? Any advice we can get for night crate training is much appreciated. Thank you.

Most of the time any place that is near but not with you is okay. The most important thing is not to respond to her crying.  There are however a few puppies that do better if in the same room.  I wouldn’t try that unless there is no change in 3 more days.  For the first week it is a good idea to have food and water in the crate.
