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.

Good question - I would be interested to know the answer.

Poppy is only 3 months, but she doesn't need to toilet until at least 5am or 6am (if she was taken outside at 10pm).

She had a phase last week where there was a 4am wake up call, but that was before we'd figured out her poop schedule! It was a hellish time to have your sleep broken, so I don't know how you are coping with doing that every night!

I don't think it's a problem and it sounds he is doing great . Most of my dogs never slept in my bedroom and in fact never even entered the room. They had each other tho ... so not sure.

Not sleeping in your room is fine. Synnu doesn't sleep in our room (though I'd like him to) and he's fine. Not sure what you mean about becomming a 'cannon' though (I'm probably being dumb).

my dog isn't sleeping in the bedroom, and the dogs before did neither. I don't think it's a problem. But why is she staying in the bathroom? lol

The bathroom is our puppy-proofed room. She goes in there when we need her out from under foot. You're not being stupid, Sarah. Cannon was my old pound rescue who had so many behavioral problems (fear aggression and reactivity mainly) that I surrendered him to a rescue so that they could find him a more experienced dog owner. It's how I found this forum. Thank you for all the replies! I won't worry about her being alone at night, then.

i think she will be ok... i can't imagine not taking my guys with me when i go to bed, but i don't have allergy issues, so i don't have to think about it like that i think so long as you are consistent (which you are) and giving her what she needs as far as training and socialization etc (which, again, you are!) she will be fine and you don't have so much to worry about with her as you did with cannon. i'm not promising that you won't see things in her behavior that remind you of cannon, just that you are SO much better prepared with this dog AND you are laying a really good foundation for her, and building a relationship... already, look how successful the cat training has been!

LOL. I think that might just scare her.
