Default Where should they sleep?

As with anything, I have found 100's of different opinions around bringing up your puppy!

Personally, I want the new addition to sleep in the kitchen, and have read all sorts about how they should sleep in the bedroom and here, there and everywhere!

Thoughts on this? Where would you reccommend?

I think whichever room you want the puppy to sleep in is fine. One of our dogs started out in the kitchen, moved to the living room and is now in our bedroom. Our newest addition started out the same way, but now sleeps in the guest bedroom (rarely have any guests sleeping overnight) and loves it in there.

Sometimes at the beginning when they are very young, it's easier to get them to calm down when they are closer to you, even if it's in the hallway looking into the bedroom.

Hmm, that depends. I personally think it doesn't matter which room the dog sleeps in. Over time, they will get comfortable in it and think of it as "their" room. There's nothing wrong with the kitchen. Zeus is the first dog of mine that actually sleeps in my bedroom. All my other dogs slept in the living room and were just fine with it. My golden retreiver actually preferred it!

When my new puppy arrives, she is going to sleep in my room for the first 3 nights, ive read in a book written by a vet that this is the best thing to do, but only a temporary thing.

Everything is fine honestly. It's just harder the first few nights if the pup isn't in the bedroom with you is all..

I allow my dogs to sleep in their crates in our bedroom for the first couple nights and then they are moved to the kitchen (still in their crates). At around seven months I allow them to sleep back in our room (still in their crates though). Usually around seven months in when mine were consistent with housebreaking so we didn't have to worry about them messing in their crates at night. I want to get rid of the crates though when they hit about a year and let them sleep in our room.

Mine choose where they want to sleep. With puppies I usually have them in the room with me. Pretty much I do it for me lol.
