    Self Settling

    he takes to the crate at night immediately but he wont use it during the day to nap. Thank you all for the advice Ill try getting him in the crate in the main room during the day for nap time.

    Self Settling

    Hey all, I am a new border collie owner, but not a first time puppy owner. My 12 week old little guy Shea is a huge ball of energy (which I expected), however he often times skips past the nap phase or refuses to stay asleep unless I remain perfectly still. I am looking for help in encouraging him to self settle, or for advice on the best way to train an off switch so he knows it is okay to get his rest before he becomes the cranky toddler monster he becomes when he skips his rest periods.
