Hi All! Koda slept through the night on Saturday. I woke him up at 2:00 to go out then he woke us up around 5:30-6:00 to go out. The last couple of nights it’s been more of what I expected. He wants out every 2.5 – 3 hours. During the night he does great in the crate. It’s rougher during the day for sure. Patience is the key along with staying on the plan but wow, does this boy have a set of lungs! LOL. He’s been doing so good for the most part. When we go out to potty he does his thing then goes and sits in front of the door to let you know he’s done and ready to go back in. We’ve been setting him down then standing off to the side of the dogs “bathroom” and he sniffs around then goes. We have a separate yard that we’ve rocked for the dogs to use as a bathroom. He did have a couple of accidents this morning but I’m pretty sure he was stressed a bit. We had a tough morning with my son. Most days he wakes up great but occasionally he is a total bear. Argues, is mean, etc. Today was that day. After everybody settled down so did Koda. We all got puppy kisses and he fell asleep on the couch with his blanket and a stuffy. J He’s asleep right now under my desk, between my feet. He is so smart, cute and loveable!!! Thank you so very much for helping bring him into our family!!!

I got 6 hours of sleep last night!!!!!!! I was feeling reeeaaalllyyy tired, to the point I was just running on auto pilot. Koda and I fell asleep between 10 and 10:30, he was in his kennel which I moved closer to my side of the bed. I woke up about 4:30, amazed that it was that late and wondering if I should wake him up. He must have felt that I was awake, he gave a couple small scratches at the gate to let me know and off we went to the bathroom. Of course he didn’t want to stay there when we came back in so we snuggled on the floor in front of the kennel. I know he fell back asleep and I must have because my wife’s alarm woke me up about 6:15. He is such a good snuggler.
May 5, 2017I wish I could say that sleep was my friend last night but Mr. Koda had other plans. He didn’t want to settle into his kennel at first. Finally around 11:00 or so he did. Woke up at 2:30 wanting out then really didn’t want to be in the kennel. Took about 30 minutes and me laying in front of it for him to sleep. Up at 5:30… no way was I going to fight that fight so snuggled him for 30 minutes until it was time for us to get up. I need coffee 🙂May 6, 2017Koda threw a fit for a long time last night. Julie thinks it was almost 2 hours. My wife and the kids were sleeping upstairs and I was with Koda downstairs. After about 45 minutes I fell asleep. LOL! I was tired and I have some good ear buds. Tough love it is. Thanks again!!!May 8, 2017Great night last night!!! Slept from 10:30 to 6:25 this morning!!!
