Well, let me take this chance to say hi since I didn't post an intro thread. I'm Danny from Puerto Rico, I'm 22 and I just got an 8 wk old basenji 1 week ago. At first I started letting him sleep in my bed, even as he woke at 3-4am to pee or do whatever, I wouldn't mind. But now school started, and I haven't slept well in a while which is really affecting me.
I tried having the dog sleep in the living room (I live in an apt) but he will just wake up around 4 and start scratching my door or crying. Last night after he woke me up I had to crate him as far away from my room as I could, and I still could hear him cry. It really breaks my heart to have to crate my dog, but I can't fail this semester because I have a puppy.
Any help/suggestions would be appreciated.
