There are a number of different ways that you can train your Pomeranian, so it is important that you take the time to look into some of them before deciding which one you should use. The more time you take to do this research, the better your results are going to be.

  1. Crate Training

You can certainly use a crate or kennel to train your dog, and it can be an extremely effective method to be sure. Make sure that the crate you have for your dog is in a safe place and that it is large enough for them so they have an adequate amount of space. The crate will need to be in an area that is close to where you and the other members of your family typically are. Keep your puppy in a crate during meal times as well as when it goes to sleep.

  1. Hi Katherine,I know what you’re going through. I’ve had the same exieeprnce before when my Pom was 8 weeks old. Still very young I know but we got through in the end.The first thing to check: Where is the crate? Is the room draft free? Is it noisy? Does he have comfortable bedding and toys?Need to make sure the environment is ok for him to sleep.Secondly, this is the hard part. You need to resist the temptation to react to his calls. Establish yourself as the leader and make sure he gets on with it . If you start getting out of bed in the middle of the night to see to him, he will clock on and know that when he calls for attention, he’ll eventuall get it.Thirdly, every dog is different. Some dogs are more anxious than others. It might be that this particular pup needs more time to settle and sleep by himself, but eventually he’ll be fine. As long as you are happy that he has everything he needs, he’ll adjust.Hope he settles soon!
