I'm actually an april puppy and still dont have him but to avoid the whole yard thing I was thinking of putting a large playpen outside and when its potty time we will place him in there so he really doesnt have any where else to go and chew things and when he is done we will bring him back or let him play loose in the yard as a reward...Does that sound like a good idea or no? because I havent really heard anyone doing this so is it not right to put him in a playpen to use the bathroom? I dont know....Gosh, sounds like we're all going through the same thing.
Colby does excellent at night. We put him in his crate anywhere from 10-11 and he sleeps until 7-7:30. So we're pretty happy about this.
Potty training is going well. No poops in the house, only 1 accident per day that we catch, rush him outside, and he finishes.
The main problem I'm having is the same one it seems you all are having. He wants to chew everything in the yard. And when he gets something, it's like he's so proud he wants to strut his stuff and run off with it. I really have to watch him because I'm scared he'll eat something he shouldn't. He's like a wild man outside.
