Should i let my puppy cry it out at night?

Best answers

Stop puppy crying at night.

So a two-month-old puppy can wait three hours.

That means your puppy will probably need to go out at least twice during the night.

If your puppy is crying and you're sure it's not for need of relieving himself, reach down and soothe him a little.
