Do you have a crate that you can use for Rudolph? If you are trying to take a nap or sleep, I would put him in the crate with a really "special" toy like a Kong stuffed with peanut butter and dog cookies, something that would keep him occupied. I would put the crate beside your bed so that he can see you as well. If he is crying, don't try (I know, it's hard) to comfort him, that just reinforces his anxiety. If you don't have a crate, maybe you could use a gate so that he would still be able to see you in your room. He is probably very scared and nervous, being in a new place with a stranger and is bound to have some issues from what I was reading. I hope that this helps....
