T o d d· Poodle Named Moose
That's not a problem that's a sign of him wanting to be around you more Our vet and others have told us to have the crate / bed in your room when you sleep so they are around you, and if you put them in during the day for a couple hours or while you are doing dinner or something it needs to be within the same room or at least near or they will whine and beg to get out as they want to spend time with you.They said dont look him in the eye. I started giving him treats w/o looking at him.....and it totally worked wonders! I did not know that that was a sign of aggression. They gave me some samples of organic/all-natural dehydrated chicken treats that he really liked.
I am having a little trouble with him at night. I don't know if it was just last night...but he kept coming into my room and whining then jumping around. I tried letting him out at 4am...that didn't work. But he won't sleep in the pet bed next to my bed? I can't figure it out. He hasn't ever done that before. I think he's just lonely out in the living room alone. He has a little cubby in my entertainment center w/ a blanket and all of his toys--but I think he just wanted to play.
Maybe he'll get used to sleeping in my room?
