Crate training your pup
This can be a challenge in the beginning as pups are no longer with their litter and have latched onto you and or your family.
Its important to start crate training right away to establish this routine before creating a comfort expectation that is going to be harder to break at a latter date.
Things we can do to help the transition.
Warm water bag rolled up in a blanket giving the pup a sense of its litter mates warmth.
Cover crate with blanket to make it dark.
Black kong filled with natural peanut butter make sure the peanut butter is without Xylitol put the kong in the freezer this is a great way to keep the pup busy for an extended time.
Make sure you pick a size Kong that is big enough so the pups tongue can not get stuck!
DO NOT RESCUE THE PUP IF IT CRIES ITS ONLY FOR A SHORT TIME.
If you rescue the pup you just thought this smart little dog it can manipulate you by crying.
On an empty bowl and bladder, a pup can be crated for 8-9 hours.
