How do I stop my puppy from crying/barking?

How do I stop my puppy from crying/barking?
I’ve read tons of info on puppy training and watched videos. I’m really losing my patience. Buddy my baby Lab is awesome when I can give him attention. When I’m out of the room for more than 15 seconds, he starts crying. I understand that I need to exercise him and do some training such as “sit” and “down”. That’s great and all, but I can’t commit more than 2 hours a day. Another major issue is that he’s not fully vaccinated. It’ll take another 3 months before I can even walk him or take him outside for some good exercise. So what are my options?

Try training classes, sounds like he has separation problems. The training classes helped with my puppy.

I think you should go out of the room and when he doesn’t cry then you shuld give him a treat. Then make it 15 seconds. Then make it to a min. And then longer.
Associate him not crying with good things

Answer by kristina
My nephew’s Alakskan Malamute is the same way. As soon as she hears that front door close, she started crying. But after a few days she got used to it. And her whing and crying stopped almost 90%.
Also you can try getting her interactive toys, and hide treats inside. maybe that will keep her mind busy. good luck, i hope that helped

You can train your puppy in 15 minute sessions twice a day. You don’t need 2 hours. Use the extra hour or so for active play. If he’s still whining every time you leave the room he has separation anxiety and may need medication to calm him, but only if it’s really bad. Talk to your vet.

DON’T GET ABUSIVE! Abuse makes things way worse. just teach him that when you leave the room you promise to come back. so leave the room come back in 5 mins or so. keep doing this for about a week the raise the time make it 10 mins. then 15 and so on.

hope this helps:)

Answer by angelhaiku
young puppies tend to do this. When I first got my puppy, she was 12 weeks old and I wanted to freakin murder her… She would NOT stop yelping and crying when I put her in the crate.

She’s the model student now. She’ll walk calmly into the crate when I tell her to, she’ll lay down and not a peep will come out of the crate.

I would put her in the crate and sit right next to it and talk to her so she wouldn’t cry, then I’d give her treats. Then I’d lock her in the crate and quickly walk around the corner while still saying her name, then walk back real quick. Then I’d also feed her in the crate, with the door open… You just have to each them it’s not a horrible thing. They’ll really start to like the crate, but it does take some training. You’re his “pack” and he’s being separated from you, so yes, he’s gonna cry. That’s all he knows what to do 🙂

When he begins to cry look him in the eye and make a short sharp noise, saying no is good enough, it doesn’t really matter what you say. It should shock him enough to be quiet. Immedietly praise him, give him a treat and lots of love, then stop after about 5 seconds. Then walk away. As soon as he starts to cry, say no sharply and loud, then reward when he stops. When you’re stroking him, don’t drag it out, just for a couple of seconds so he makes an assosiation. We recently got a Springer Spaniel / Labrador cross puppy called Dylan. He had the same problem as Buddy, and this worked for us. Good luck! Hope this helps [:
