Question Help please! My puppy won't stop crying.

Ok, i just got my puppy today, brought him home, fed him, he drank lots of milk and pooped several times.

He is 5 weeks old. My first puppy.

We have him sleeping downstairs in the laundry room, he won't stop crying.

I understand that it's normal and that he misses his siblings and mother/father.

I also filled up a big bottle with hot water and put it in hes crate so he can have something warm, i don't have a ticking clock right now. I also have a night light for him.

I would love to bring him in my room, except i cant have him cry because i don't want my tenants moving they pay 1500$ rent every month and i have a mortgage to pay. Also my mom will bug out if he pisses and poops in my rom.

Should i just ignore the crying?

Please what should i do because its breaking my heart. lol

Tell me how you guys do it, what do you do to prevent the smell off the poop and piss since he is too young to be potty trained and what kind of cage or bed should i get for him?

Its a puppy. He is definitly really young and isnt use to you or your family yet so thats why he is crying. Keep him in the cage near you to calm him down. I recently (last thurs) bought myself a puppy (currently 6 weeks old) as well and she cried a good amount the first night. However, as the days go on she crys less and less. Last night she slept the whole night quietly, i keep her in her cage right next to my bed. Be patient and with time he will calm down. A puppy is like a baby and needs lots of attention.

Do you have a basement or a cellar? LOL

Its just like a 1 month old baby. They get cold easy and thirsty easy (momma dog has it down perfect, now you have to try and do what she and his siblings did for him).
Congratulations, on your new family member.

This breed is very needy. They may cry when you leave the house even at a few years old (give them a treat when you leave when he is older - its a good association). Potty training takes time. They would rather go to the bathroom outside. Every 2 to 4 hrs he will have to go to the bathroom (as well as every time he wakes up). Get lots of newspaper until you potty train him. Praise him when he goes to the bathroom on the paper. This breed loves to please his owners. It may be a little more difficult on you because you picked up your puppy at to young of an age.

PS Use the "milk" for puppies, not the out of the refrigerator milk.

Put a nice dog bed (with blankets or towels on top in case he pees) by your bed with newspaper for your pup not to far away. Use lots of praise. A small kennel for sleeping in and for when you are out of the house may be OK. Again, good association. The best bedding and toys stay in the kennel for you use for house breaking.

Good luck.
It aint easy, but its worth it. BYW, two dogs are easier that one.

I live in New Jersey so its too cold and shes too young for me to be taking her out so im currently training her to go on the wee pad. I also have her eating on a schedule. At 6am before i go to work, at 12pm my wife feeds her lunch, and the last meal at 6pm. We do this so she won't have to poop at night while in her cage. I also give her water throughout the day and dont give her anymore past 9pm so she wont pee. And at the at 11-12am i put her in her cage to go to bed. She might whine n cry for a little and the she stops. You must be patient, hes a baby and with time he will learn. Praising is a must! Its easier than it seems. Im no dog expert and im learning as i go as well.

Diesel did this when he was a pup.. i didnt have a crate yet so i tried to stick him in the bathroom so cleanup would be easier.. wasnt gonna work, he'd just cry.. so i ended up sticking him in the bed with us.. if he started moving i knew he had to go potty so i took him outside.. problem now is, he thinks our bed is his.. lol

That is very young to have the pup away from the litter should be more like 8 weeks for someone with no experience with puppys. I always crate train mine right off the bat { although a couple we did let sleep in bed with us and they didnt have accidents , if your a heavy sleeper though I wouldnt do this you need to wake easily if they are up and moving to get them outside right away}. I always told people who got pups from us they will most likely cry the 1st while but it does get better. Give them a toy or clock outside of there crate { the clock worked wonders for a few people we know} and just bear through it. If you run to him everytime he crys or let him out of the crate he learns that crying gets what he wants and it will never end. On some occassions the boyfriend slept in the other room on the couch with the pup they seemed to settle down for there 1st few days home that way and we were able to work on crate training during the day. Either way though there is going to be crying at some point. Id just make sure he is comfy and get him on a routine ASAP , let him cry it out.

I agree with Angel, I would keep the pup with you and take them out every couple hours and then work on crate training during the day when people are awake and the crying can be ignored. Talk to your tenants and let them know what the deal is and if there is a problem to speak on it, and not let it fester until they want to move.
Why is the pup with you so soon? You should expect a lot of crying with puppies until you get them trained. Just like babies, they are going to cry its just figuring out what they need to make them comfortable.

I had a 6 week old pup a long time ago and I let him sleep with me for the first week or so. Its such a huge adjustment for them when they are that small and plucked from there mom and litter mates.

Whenever I get a new pup I have them sleep with me for at least a week so they are more comfortable and not so home sick.Then after that I have them sleep in a crate.My newest pups crate is in my room so he's still close to me.
You need to get a crate that's the right size.If it's too big then they will just go in the crate and continue to sleep on the other side.
A pup that young will need to go out to use the bathroom very often.Probably every hour and always right after they eat or drink anything or while playing.As soon as you see him start sniffing around,take him out.If he gets too used to using the bathroom in the house it will be even harder to housetrain him.
I would definitely invest in a crate if you cannot take him out very often.That will also help him learn to hold his bladder.

+1 for the crate training sooner rather than later. The only point I differ on to some others is that I would let him cry it out on his own. Having said that, I've never had a pup from 5 weeks so take that with a grain of salt. What worked for me with 8 week old pups might be different for you with a 5 week old.

It is heartbreaking to hear the crying but as long as you know he's safe and warm he should be fine.

Let me update you what's going on!

Day 2:
I was away for the morning but my dad played with him and kept him company.

I came home around 4pm, its 9:37 now i played with him till now, he slept in my arms for hours, i had a plastic bag next to me the whole time in case he tried poop or pee.

We wrestled he kept biting me and now hes downstairs in hes little fort, the hot water bottle works wonders, I'm gonna go check up on him in about 3 hours to give him some more water, and then tomorrow all day I'm going to try teach him potty training outside, and I'm gonna do this everyday. He is no longer crying amazingly, I'm so happy about that.

glad he is doing better, the 1st few days are the worst by far it does get easier as they adjust. Playing with him alot during the day and getting him tired will also benfit you as well so sounds like you are on the right track. Just remember consistency for potty training, just be ontop of him. 10 minutes after eating and drinking head outside and stay out until he goes. Using the same spot he has used before I find helps too so if he does his buisness maybe leave a pile there if you can. I found when I had a litter here they all would go in the same spot they would sniff around the area and figure thats where the others went and they would too. Then PRAISE, when he goes make the biggest deal out of it like he did the most amazing thing , they love when you are happy with them. I find this breed is really smart and they do catch on quick so if you stay on it , shouldnt be long before he has it down.
