Re: New puppy coming home

Re: New puppy coming home

Another busy night although emily settled from 1-5. After that she wouldn't settle back in her crate. Any suggestions? Also really struggling with our three year old. She is not coping with emily nipping and tends to scream/curl up which makes emily worse. We have said for her to say no and turn her...

Re: New puppy coming home

That's her home. Car journey was no bother. She has managed one wee outside so far☺☺. She has met one of our three children and coped really well. A wee quick clicker training session learning her name and now fast asleep. ...so far so good. Need to work out how to post some pics now ☺☺

Re: New puppy coming home

All of your suggestions sound much kinder and on line with our parenting style (for our human babies lol) I think the crate will be her wee de...

Re: Newbie question Puppy kong

So do you think I should get the small pink one for her coming home and just put some of her own kibble inside it to start it or not bother at the start?
