I have, and he LOVES it! hah! Likes to lick it off clean. I mean that stuff almost murdered my taste buds but did absolutely nothing to deter my baby from biting my hands or feet. I've even went with the homemade stuff which he also liked. Then I started using lemon juice. It worked, but then I remembered the neg effects lemon juice has on skin. Therefore, I stopped that too. But thanks again for your help. I will give everything you have all suggested a go and shall keep you posted.

honestly, how many hours/minutes does he spend in his room?
if he is crying before meal times and potty times, then you aren't meeting his needs soon enough. he is letting you know he has a need. if you allow it to get to that point then feed him/let him out, you are creating a behavior chain where he learns that he must cry to get what he wants. what is his feeding and potty schedule?
if he is having accidents, you aren't supervising him very well

if you've only had him for 2 weeks, you have not tried every trick in the book you've likely tried multiple punishments, and that does not work.

I have been supervising him. Like a hawk, I've been watching his every move, but the problem here is that when he's too excited or too worked up he'd choose to go in my bedroom lying down. He'd even miss the training pads at times.

I haven't and would never dare punish him. Not even for almost piercing through my skin every time he bites. hah.
His feeding schedule is 3 times a day. 7AM/12PM/5PM and I feed him plenty until he is done eating, as suggested by a vet. Potty is every 3 hours from the moment he wakes up till he is passed out or until I am out cold. Also after every meal, playtime, exercise, and whenever he wakes up.

As for Training Positive's methods, I have tried to apply them to my baby's training but they haven't worked on him. He's either slow, stubborn, or simply too young to care. The only time he would respond to the "off" command is if I had a treat in my hands or if he wasn't hyper.

I know he gets lonely but he's with me from the minute he wakes up till it's time for bed. I'm wondering if I should feed him an extra meal before bed.

Thanks for the help.

He also is crying if he's downstairs because he's bored and lonely. Does he have a ton of toys and bones and stuff to keep him busy for when he MUST be alone?? P.s. keep his sleeping place consistent-pick your room or the basement room. He will get confused going back and forth.

He's crying at 4 am likely to go potty. Most pups this age need 1-2 potty trips overnight. You likely need to accept this until he's fully housetrained, which he isn't. Take him out on a short leash, give your potty command and wait. Once he goes, give a treat and immediately back inside CALMLY so he knows it's back to sleep and not playtime.

As far as biting-this is something I'm still working on with my 4 month old. It takes A LOT of work. Give it time. Work on potty training first. Your pup is AN INFANT.
Hi BlakeAndSam,
I am feeding him 3 times a day. Should I give him a 4th one? He's been on this schedule since day one and only recently did he start whining and crying. He never whined or cried to be let out either for potty or for attention. It worked well until a few days ago when suddenly all hell broke loose.

I have bought almost every toy, every treats, and every sort of bedding available here to pups. I'm even considering adopting a second pup to keep him company as a final resort.

This morning, he took up whining at about 2AM, stopped then started up again at around 415-430AM and continued on til 6:30AM. It wasn't as loud and obnoxious as previous mornings, at first, but it got louder around 5:30AM.

I know he's an infant, and thankfully, he hasn't had accidents in his own bedroom. it's just my room he fancies, unfortunately.

I honestly don't have much more advice to give, as I'm pretty new to puppy ownership myself.
My main questions are: Are you feeding him enough?
Have you tweaking his feeding schedule? Maybe feedinf the last meal a little bit later would help hold him over until morning? Some people say that some (certainly not all puppies) need a meal shortly before bed so they don't wake up hungry in the middle of the night.
Are you ignoring the whining at odd hours of the morning? If not, do you wait for him to stop before you do anything? Also, when you take him out at night, are you all business or do you play with him, treat him, etc?

Everybody has covered everything...but, your puppy isn't stubborn; that's a human thing and he is a dog. Don't expect to find answers by relating them to human feelings and reactions cos it doesn't work. Getting a good book on behaviour will help you to train out the problems in a way that your puppy will understand. Hope this helps.

PLEASE DO NOT GET ANOTHER PUPPY. If you can't handle one-two is just double the hassle. It's literally like having twin babies. Double the diapers (except double the accident cleanup in your house)

Yes, I would feed 4x/day until 12-13 weeks. I did. Then drop to 3. Generally every time a pup poops his stomach is empty again. Use this as a rule of thumb, so if he's pooped, he's hungry again. He's growing like a weed and his digestive tract is on hyperdrive. This is the morning crying-either hunger and/or needing to potty. If you didn't respond to him at all, you'll never know, but you need to decipher why he won't cut it out.

Honestly-he's lonely. Put his crate in your room. He will see it as more of his "den" and stop soiling there. You said he doesn't soil his room-wonder why? It's where he sleeps. Want him to stop soiling your room? Make it where he sleeps. This will stop a lot of the nighttime crying as well since dogs are social animals and like companionship. Even when in crates, they can smell you and know you are near. This way, if he does whine, you know he needs to potty. At that age-it's normal. Take him out for a no-nonsense trip and immediately back to bed. No play.

Play with him-don't just throw treats and toys at him and expect him to be happy. He needs to be trained and loved and walked and exercised and stimulated and all the things that come with puppyhood. Find a neighbor or friend with a puppy he can play with and wrestle on occasion. This has been a truly invaluble resource for me-Sam and Apollo *his best friend* play almost every day, if not twice a day and it tires him out-they are so excited to see each other it warms my heart feels. Plus it makes for a sleepy happy pup.

Be patient-a lot of this is puppy behavior that decreases with time. He's not going to be a perfect pup immediately out of the box.
