  1. Sleep Cycle Issues

    Dog Training Forum
    My dog sleeps most of the day, but is awake a good part of the night whining at me from his crate. I have tried keeping him awake during the day. He has no interest in playing. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I have considered buying him a calming collar, since he is new to the home.
