Picked up new pup on Friday. Really pleased with her and just 8 weeks. Feeding her with Harringtons puppy food as that is what the breeder started her on. Lots of conflicting information around with every brand claiming to be best.
house training:- she is and will be a house dog, so the sooner we get her trained the better. Every time she wakes she is being put out, but in the middle of the night she does squeek a couple of times. There is a puddle on the kitchen floor. No point telling her off so newspaper down and put her back to bed. She does rather want to go out and play - and yes 2am Saturday was in the garden with her just having fun. Put a stop to that as this is going to equal squeak in the middle of the night gives fun and games.
My thinking is concentrate on day time, and accept there will be a few night time puddles till she gets a bit older.
She does have a puppy cage so we can shut the door on her, but she generally has the run of the kitchen.
She he had her first jab on Saturday, so another two weeks before the next and then another week before can take her out for a good roam about. There may be a bit of cabin fever in the meantime!!!
