Hi

I also have an August baby. He was born 8/28 and we are still waiting to bring him home. The breeder should be calling any day now as he will be 8 weeks this saturday.

Sophie was born 8/15 and we got her on 10/15. It's been a tiring 5 days to say the least

Is anyone crate training? How is potty training going?

Hi! Naïla is born on the 25th and the potty training is more difficult than the first days...maybe because we don't crate her for sleeping. She's crying to much and my husband don't tolerate that. We put her in the bathroom with her bed, a lot of toys and pee pads. She does pretty well. I know that this is maybe confusing for puppy, because we accept pee indoors in the night but not in the day...

Cajun

Our pup, Cajun, was born on 8/20. We brought him home on Sunday and all is going well. He is being a really great puppy.

We are crate training although he hasn't been in it as much during the day as he will have to be once I go back to work. I'm just trying to get him used to it.

Last night was wonderful. He had already started falling asleep with us in the family room so we took him out to potty and then into the upstairs crate next to our bed. He didn't whine once and went straight to sleep which was around 11:30. He made it until almost 3 before he woke us up. We went to potty and then he slept until 6:30.....yay

Potty training is going really well. We had a couple pee accidents yesterday during play times that we caught him in the act on. Other than that, he's learned that going to the door and whining means that he will get to go outside. I think I'm going to try bell training him to go out...we'll see. No accidents at all at night in his crate or in his crate during the day...."keeping fingers crossed".

He is following me all over the house too and laying by my feet. So far bitter apple spray seems to be working on the chewing although he's not much of one yet...."keeping fingers crossed again".

More pics of Cajun (there are some others in my introduction post). As you can see from the last pic, he likes snuggling with my shoes...slippers, sneakers, it doesn't matter. At least he isn't chewing them

Hi to everyone, It will be interesting to see how they all grow.
We haven't started crate training yet. I plan to start this weekend. Oscar has been sleeping in a travel cot since we brought him home. He sleeps from about 11pm untill 3am has a wee, and then back to sleep untill 6.30am. Potty training is going well, we are in an apartment so he is paper trained for now. We have only had a couple of accidents. I thought I'd really puppy proofed here but boy..he finds the strangest things to try to eat, tiny bits of fluff, he even pulled a raw plug ( that a screw fits into) out of the wall. Lucky that I am observant! Is anyone else feeling quite tired? lol
Only 10 more days until I can take him out!

Dixie was born 8/9. We brought her home at 6 weeks and later found out we shouldn't have gotten her so early. Makes me wonder about the breeder but she's been fine. She is being crate trained and we leave the crate downstairs at night. The first few weeks I would set my alarm and take her out around 2 or 3 am but then she was always asleep and I started letting her sleep and waited to see if she whined. She never did, she sleeps from about 10pm until 7 - 7:30 am!! I'm very happy about that. The chewing and biting was driving me crazy for a bit but that's getting better already, thanks in part to bitter apple spray. She's very friendly and beautiful and a wonder playmate for the kids.

Beau came home yesterday and loves our male black lab who is 6. The lab however isn't quite sure as Beau loves to nibble on his tail. So far potty training is going well and we are working on crate training today. We let him sleep with us last night and I took him out about every 3 hours when I noticed him trying to change his position a bunch. Hoping our crate training will go well! For now my Lab is also crying when the puppy cries
