Another stupid puppy question
We have been putting Coconut to bed in the bathroom at night (with her crate) at 10 p.m. and taking her out at 6 a.m.. She's now around 5 months old. Will this effect her as an adult? Like, is she going to have problems at 1 year old because we don't have her in our room at night? We do it mainly for allergy reasons (and myself to stay sane, 'cause I'm not sure I could handle a whiny puppy in the room at night, honestly).
We need to do some CC on staying alone in the bathroom, since her standard is to whine for 5 minutes when put away, but otherwise, she goes in at bed time excitedly for her treat and once she settles down, she sleeps nearly through the night now (we're waking up for 4 a.m. potties, adding an hour every week).
I'm just having these fears lately of her becoming Cannon in a year or two.
