Toilet training has not easy!

I would also say enjoy your puppy as they grow so quickly! You are going to have great fun with your new addition. We would never be without dogs.
Oh my gosh, you poor thing !
I have buckled down my stairs a few times but never worse than a sore ankle,luckily (although the pain was excruciating !)
Thank you .
Werent supposed to be getting him before we went away but breeder said she recommended it for bonding purposes so the next couple of weeks will be interesting !

Its an exciting time. Weve always had ours from 8 weeks old - I know breeders sometimes want them to go later - they change so quickly! Enjoy xx

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.

Would never leave him locked in a crate .
I work from home so around all day and when he does have to be left we have put gates up so hes in a safe area

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