Outside as in outside you bedroom or in your yard. I dont think Maltese are "yard dogs." It is very dangerous for them outdoors.

She meant outside her bedroom. 8-12 week old is still too young for that.

Ah heck, when i first got my toby, i put the crate on the end of bed! lol. Most nights it would be in the room either RIGHT next to the bed where he could hear me breath, or in a place where he could see me. But being away from the pack is unnatural and very scary for the dog imo, this early on, s/he should feel as comfortable and safe as possible. One more thing, 8-12 weeks is a fear stage iirc, fear imprints during this stage and shapes their personality afterwards and the last thing you want is a fearful barky dog with seperation anxiety.

Also worth a mention, maltese and most other toy dogs, are animals literally bred over 1,000's of years, to be right next to a human. But the above is way more relevant to the situation than that.

Get a platic travel crate, put the crate in the bedroom = no peeing on the bed, no barking, and no more upsettedness to the pup.

Bailey_14_08: I think it's really sweet that you are going through the effort do sleeping out in the living room next to your new pup. That and the fact that you are asking for advice here show you will be a great puppy parent!

When we brought Abbie home, I ended up clearing off my nightstand and putting her plastic kennel up there facing me. Many nights were spent with my fingers in the door grates. Sometimes I wish we would have trained her to sleep in a different room, I would probably be getting better sleep. We tried having the kennel on the floor and she howled for hours...up on the nightstand worked great.

And yes....the stinker has worked her way to the bed, but will also sleep in her kennel if we need her to, so it's working out.

Good luck and congratulations on the pup.

I'm having the same problem. But not at night, just when I leave the house...OR the room. I've been bringing her into the bathroom/bedroom when I shower and get dressed in the morning, but this morning she didn't go potty when I took her out and I didn't want her going on the floor, so I left her in her X-pen. She barked for 45 mins straight. -- Last night, we went to the movies and started barking when I left. I forgot something inside, so I had to turn around and when I was getting closer, I could STILL hear her. She just refuses to be left alone. Any advice???
