I cannot get over how darn cute she is...I am extremely jealous!

When she poops and pees outside, do you give her a treat or what are you doing? Sounds like whatever you are doing is fantastic and working, I'm just curious so I know what to do when mine comes home. Also, it sounds like the cats did fine. Did you just let them meet without any intervention? How did the cat react? How did Sage react? Sorry for all the questions..I know you've got your hands full!

I know you're busy...but, MORE PICTURES PLEASE! Whenever you get the chance that is...hehe

So incredibly happy for you! You must be over the moon!
I have not given a treat yet for potty, we just make a big deal out of it. we also make a big deal out of the "right" things she does. Like, she just knows to sit when we go outside. So I lean over pet her tell her good sit and then say OK, Sage lets go...IDK if she gets it yet, but I figure it's easier to catch her doing good and rewarding with praise than trying to avert her when she does something wrong.

AND we have found the bitter yuk to be awesome. She does not like the taste at all!!!!

I will use treats down the line, but don't want to pull out the "big guns" unless necessary.

As for the cats. My cats are used to dogs, all kinds of dogs and Maddy just doesn't care, Grace will retreat to her lair in the basement if she doesn't like what is going on...but she walked right up to Sage and rubbed up against her and then went and laid on our bed. Not all cats are like this and usually we would introduce slowly if we thought there would be a problem, but the cats were here first and the "puppy" must respect the cats. Sage sniffed Maddy's butt, Maddy wasn't even upset about it. I believe in letting them work it out to a degree. I never would let Sage terrorize the cats or vice versa...and I will step in if it's a problem..but again the cats were here first and Sage needs to respect them. I also brought home a towel each time I went to visit Sage that had her smell on it so that Emma and the cats could sniff them.

We just had an almost accident. As I was typing this, Sage decided to squat...hubby caught her and took her out and she pooped...crisis averted...lol

I will try to post more pics tomorrow....lord knows I've taken enough of them...

Thanks for the info! I never thought of saving the treats as the ultimate reward and figured we would use them for potty. But if it's working for you, that's what I will do too!

I'm glad Sage and the cats had a good introduction and it really sounds like Sage has already made herself comfortable and at home. She sounds like a confident dog, which is a great thing! I love the picture of her laying on you (presumably you).

Can't wait to see more pictures!! So glad everything is going well! Hopefully she is eating well too..I never heard of so many eating problems for puppies until I came on this forum. Looking forward to hearing how her first night is!

Every dog is different and right now Sage doesn't need the treats....But she soaks up the praise. She is pretty confident but not hard headed, at least I haven't noticed that yet. I am not working on anything but crate and potty training right now and catching the type of behaviors I like and giving her praise for them. Most likely will try for sit in the next few days, but so far she is really good!!!!
She is eating well...almost 1/2 cup at dinner...she was fed in the morning and evening and the bowl was left down till empty so she really is a bit of a snacker and I let that slide tonight, but I did pick up the food and water abt 8pm...right now she is napping again...longest she has slept at one time all day. I'm going to wake her abt 9ish and try to keep her up till about 11....Then we all go to bed. Oh I spoke to soon...someone is fidgeting...lol....We will just let her and see what she does.

And yep that's me in the picture! I was tired and so was she, however I only let her snuggle for a bit before putting her in the crate...

As for food issues...I think Golden's seem to have their fare share of stomach issues! We plan on keeping Sage on Eukenuba LBP, which is what the breeder had her on for at least a month or two....then we will slowly start to change her over to Fromm fingers crossed she does well on it!

Well our first night went well. Sage went to bed abt 10 pm..we tried to keep her up later but she just couldn't. We didn't hear a peep until almost 6am this morning. While she slept well, we didn't. I was awake at 2,4 and 5am....From 4-5 I couldn't sleep as I was starting to worry that something was wrong, but decided not to go check...I was happy to hear her at 550ish this morning.
