Guest Shontel Posted August 16, 2013 Share Posted August 16, 2013 I've had my retired racing grey for about a month and a half now...3 year old male, he's extremely shy...he was fostered (with another grey for about 6 weeks) He would not come out of his crate for 3 days (except to go out when I put a leash on him) so now, once he started sleepin outside the crate, he slept in the living room with my other dog. He has always gotten up at like 4 or 5 whining to go out...I caved and let him (probably mistake #1) he continues to whine early in the a.m. but goes right out and does his business...he had stomach issues so I though, so I justified letting him go early. Well, last night, he decided at around 12:30 he was gonna play, squeaky toys, turned over bedding....I came out of the bedroom and slept on the couch which I frequently do so he would settle. he got up again whining at like 3am...I didn't respond and he eventually settled down...then at 5:45 he got up again, I just was to exhausted to fight it so I let him out.... I know I'm not being a good pack leader...I want to teach him he needs to sleep all night until we get up without having to crate him...please any suggestions from seasoned owners would be awesome!!!!! Thanks!!!! Shontel Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
