I found dog crates wonderful. When Fergus was a baby, he felt really secure in his crate and my older dog, Flynn used to go into the crate to get away from him as well. The door was open all the time so they just went in when they wanted to rest and Fergus would take himself oof to it at bed time. Obviously as he got older I no longer needed the crate and he came upstairs to sleep on the bed with Flynn. That was my first experience of using a crate and I now would never use anything else for a puppy.
When do you get your new puppy and who is he by?
Lots of love and praise when he 'goes' outside and straight out after food and when he wakes up. I used a crate when my girls were puppies and rarely had any accidents over night. I dare say you are doing all this already - has Maureen any tips?
Very happy to know that Bailey is recovering very well and that soon we will see some pictures of this handsome boy of yours!!! This was a hard time for you Shelley and I am sure your boy is giving you plenty of cuddles to help you to forget these horrible days :-)
