As you all know I have a beagle pup who is reaching 4 months of age. He was doing really well w/ his crate and could sleep 5-6 hours during the night. Starting this week we've noticed he whines & whimpers alot. I take him to the bathroom, or give him water.But as soon as he settles down I place him back in the crate and he whines, whimpers, and will paw at the gate, circles inside. I've given him toys & changed them out every so often. I just do not know what happened just all of a sudden this week he won't sleep through the night. I've read on ignoring him when he is in the crate whining away, which I did at 3am this morning, but he whined for 1 hour. So I took fed him & took him out. It is now 420 am and he's finally sound asleep. Took him about 5 minutes and then I heard snoring. The sound of JOY right now :hyper: SLEEP!!!!!!!!!!! Well I suppose I should catch on some sleeping as well since I have to get up for work in 3 hours. Advice anyone ? Also neuter question ? After that procedure he should simmer down a tad ...right ??
