It will be fine. You can always ask on here for advice if you need it there are lots of dog owners with great advice to give. Your vet will be helpful too Im sure 🐶

I have had dogs all my life numerous puppies and rescue dogs . I now have 2 rescued ex-breeders from puppy farming. The idea of keeping a dog in a cage for x.no. of hours is an absolute no no for me, and not something I would ever ever use or do. However, it seems that crate/cage training is the 'in' thing to try and stop 'accidents' in the home. Keeping puppies in one room only, constantly taking them out after play, eating etc. so that they get used to using the garden for their toilet training works. Putting paper or pads by the door in which you are training them to use to go out for a wee works as well. Tried and tested for many years on all the wonderful dogs that have been in my life.

Yes the breeder said this too, one of hers loves a long walk ! Will definitely be careful with the overheating

FizzyWhip, I also use gates which keep mine in my kitchen when I'm out. My latest rescue, she's a golden retriever and ex-breeders are always confined, (kennels etc) in the most horrible conditions and house training takes a little longer, but after 3 months we are almost there. So even in older dogs, it still works and with no crates/cages.

Blimey - I didn't even know Goldens ended up in rescue centres x Such beautiful dogs.. I might have to google. I work from home and would love a dog so we could keep each other company.

We put an old jumper which one of us had be wearing for a bit, to have our scent on for the night times. Also a wee soft toy thing that had a heart beat in it that went in at night time too. Cried a wee bit during the night, but did not take long for her to settle.
We also used crates, covered them up, since then our westie loves being under blankets, and you would not know hes there.
