Make Sure Your Puppy has a Comfortable Sleep Environment
This means creating a space that is quiet, dark, and warm.
Allow Your Puppy to Hydrate Before Bed
It’s important to ensure your puppy is well hydrated before they go to bed. This means giving them plenty of water to drink throughout the day and avoiding strenuous exercise in the evening.
Allowing for Potty Breaks
As mentioned above, puppies need to urinate and defecate frequently. This means that they will likely wake up several times during the night to relieve themselves.
