My puppy has just arrived in the last 24h and she’s finding it hard to sleep. She will settle on me but not completely sleep. At night she will but nothing during the day.
She’s 3month old only. Any ideas?

Establish a regular nap time, just like with a small child. Puppy goes into crate, baby pen, or wherever naps should happen. You go do something really boring, like work on your computer. Puppy will probably protest for a bit (just like a human kid) then heave a great disgruntled sigh and take a nap.

Yep! Add a yummy stuffed Kong or chew toy and puppy might even chew themselves to sleep and skip the complaining. This is a self-soothing technique that will also work well when you're not around.
