So we have a gorgeous 4-month-old Sheepadoodle puppy called Peggy. She will go to bed fine but at 4.30am she will wake, whine, bark and not stop. When she goes quiet I go down and let her out, but this is after an hour or so. We got her at 14 weeks old she slept the first 4 nights in a cage in the bedroom and cried, we then we got a playpen with a bed in it in the living room, as that was what she had at the breeders. In a morning we let her upstairs and she has a fuss over everyone then will lay and chew a toy. We ignore her till about 6 am then go and get her, I make sure i always make a drink before even going into the living room and she isn't allowed out until she sits down. She will then come out of her playpen and sit by the stairgate waiting to go up. She isn't desperate for a wee because I let her straight out and she doesn't bother so she isn't crying for a wee. She has plenty in her playpen to keep her amused. We know it's our own fault as we allow her upstairs in a morning to have a fuss on the bed and be part of the morning. However, we need to kerb this as she gets louder and louder. I won't go to her until she is quiet. We are contemplating allowing her to sleep on the landing but should we be just sticking to our guns and ignoring her until we are ready to get up. We know it's our fault for letting her upstairs and on the bed, but any advice as to extra things we could do other than ignoring her to help get her to amuse herself when she wakes up would be great. She has toys etc in her playpen so she does have things to do?
