Elway thank you, we sure are enjoying Max. I agree it will be neat to watch puppies close in age grow up & hear about the things they are doing.

You & Lauren8211 must be counting down the hours until you go get your little guys. Can't wait to see pictures.

I am over the moon pleased with my new boy! He thrives on human attention, trots along behind us wherever we go, and is already going to the door when he needs to go outside (...sometimes). He's a playful, spirited little thing yet he has taken his new experiences completely in stride. He's excited when we get excited, and chill when we sit down quietly. A very responsive pup, which I'm thrilled about.

I think our biggest challenge right now will be crate training. He's happy as a clam if 1) he's eating or 2) the door is open. But once he finishes his meal/we shut the door, he cries and barks. Personally, I'd rather stick it out for a little while than work haphazardly and prolong the process. However, we do have neighbors, and my fiancé is very nervous about bothering them with late-night barking. I see where he's coming from, but last night Elway was jailbroken early by the fiancé and, sure enough, fiancé went back to sleep and puppy had an accident before we were up to prevent it. Maybe the vet will have some words of encouragement re: toughing out the barking. If we didn't have neighbors so close to us this would be a totally different story As is, I think today I'll have Elway hang out in the crate with the door closed for little blocks of time, trying to work up to a proper nighttime crating. I know it'll serve us all well in the long run.

Attached are some pics of my guy. He's been melting hearts from the second we brought him home. How are everyone else's doing?

What a sweetie Elway is! Max does well in the crate at night but if I have to put him in there during the day to do anything he is not happy. Where are you crating him at night in your room or away from you? Max is doing good on housebreaking most times he goes to do the door when he needs out otherwise I try to keep track of time & take him out often.

Hello!

Jack was born on 5th June and came home on 1st Aug. He was 5.6kg at his first vet visit yesterday!

Doing really well, gets up once a night, sleeps a lot, loves his "stuffy" toys (as opposed to the kong etc..). An absolute sweetheart and pretty laid back.

So happy to have a June thread!!!

Jack is a cutie, he looks all worn out. Max went to the vet today & he weighs 14 pounds now.

I completely forgot to answer this thread but Kaizer (born june 4) went to the vet yesterday for his first round of vaccines! He weighs 17.7 pounds at 9 weeks old. We got the biggest pup in the litter! I'm glad everyone else's puppies are doing good, that's always such a relief to hear!

We've got it in the bedroom but we'll be moving it to a different room once we stop his nighttime bathroom trips. The breeder actually gave us a fantastic tip for the noise while in the crate. She said to take his metal food bowl and give it a sharp whack against the crate. It shuts him right up, and since we've got the crate covered in a dark blanket for that den vibe, all he sees is "barking-->bad noise I want to avoid." Some people aren't crazy about techniques like that, but not bothering the neighbors is a condition of his staying here, so it's really in his best interest. We haven't had a noise problem since!

Besides solving that little dilemma, we really haven't had any other issues. He's a wonderful leash walker with great instincts when it comes to meeting people. He's adventurous and happy, and I think he'll be an excellent companion. He requires constant supervision of course but he's so wonderful to be with that nobody minds at all.

Once we catch up on our sleep hopefully I can check the forum out more! For now, both the puppy and I need a good long nap.

Hello Everyone

Discord was Born on June 15th, And I just picked him up on the 9th. I'm excited to know there is an entire forum of puppy parents that share the same birth month. This is him on our journey home, though he whined about 50% of the journey.

Hello again! How is everyone doing? Here's a new pic of Jack. He is growing like a weed and getting braver and more adventurous in the yard. Mornings are definitely his high-energy times! He has two crates - one for nighttime in our bedroom, and one in the living room. We are still working on the house training thing.....
