Bleary Eyed

Briefly, Sofie sleeps in her crate in our bedroom. Never any problems, even the first days we brought her home. When the grands come and they occupy the other bedrooms, she howl, whines, and barks at bedtime. I am fairly certain she wants to be with the kids. Do I move crate in the boys bedroom or the granddaughter's. There is no guarantee that will be successful.IF she whines and howls in there, move her back in with us, then everyone is unsettled. Do I just let her whine and howl in our room, till she realizes she is where she is for the night. I got about 2 hours broken sleep. My DH went downstairs, which didn't help her to settle. She had herself so stressed, it was hard for her to eventually settle around 3:30 am. We have one more night tonight.

interesting dilemma . lol . Not sure if i'm picturing this correctly or not. Sometimes dogs even when they supposedly know who's in the area, they will alert bark as if it were a stranger. You could try taking her into their rooms as soon as they're settled and give some good night kisses. In this way you have addressed your dog's concerns and that might be enough to satisfy her. If not you might have to resort to waiting her out with her antics in your bedroom. Let us know how it goes. Nothing terribly wrong with letting her spend the night in their rooms either, but if she starts up there ,she loses her privilege lol
