As the puppy is sleeping in the day time she may not be interested to sleep in the night So try to keep her busy or play with her in the day time so that she will sleep in the night

Dogs are naturally nocturnal, which means they remain active at night. You can keep the puppy stimulated after 6 pm, if you can keep him active around that time he'll sleep better at night. Puppy biting is very common at this age, it is happening because your pup is getting his first set of teeth. You can give him a toy to chew on or cold carrot and cucumber to help reduce irritation.

Hey Arpita, After the second dose of vaccination is done, you can also start training for Brownie. Training will help you understand and resolve her behaviour issues like biting and socializing, and will help her form good habits for pee and poop, and leash walking. Regular evening walks will keep her simulated and will ensure better sleep cycle.
