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
