We attended a Puppy 101 class early in the week….and I’ve spent the remainder of the week like a first time mom thinking I’m going to screw him up forever. And last night my exhaustion left me crying over my husband leaving me for a weekend fishing trip….like sitting on the floor of the closet crying in the dark! I am very thankful we all got a good nights sleep and Dutch Buddy went in his crate this morning on his own without crying when we had to leave for work. I seriously cannot wait to get back home to see him!!
Right now we are making sure to only crate him for 3 hours max at a time but that will have to increase to 4 once my kids go back to school later this month. I know there are so many varying opinions out there about the dos and don’ts of raising a sweet, well behaved little puppy and it seems like every time I turn to google for help I end up more concerned and confused! If any of you have any tips to share that worked for you I’d love to hear!
