1/24/08 Where is the dog sleeping? He might quiet down if he sleeps in a crate in your room. At 11 weeks old he may not be ready to be separated from you all night. Some old tricks are a hot water bottle (not too warm, please) or a ticking clock. But the best thing may be 30 minutes of hard play before bedtime. If he's tired, nature will take its course. Most GSD's need a lot of exercise (appropriate to their age) to be healty. They were originally bred to herd sheep over the German countryside all day. David
