    In the unit?

    Can you vclarify the question a little... do you mean what room? Do you need a crate? Do you have a backyard at all?

    I think your chioce of breed is wrong, surely a Japanese Spitz is too small. maybe a malamute would be better.

    Depends when. I think it's ok to confine them to one room at night, but I would give them free run of the house at other times, including when you are not home. They would get way too bored otherwise, in my opinion.

    Bit of a strange question really... I mean, a dog is not like a hamster that you keep in a cage?

    I have 2 poodles and a Chinese Crested and mine have free run of the house during the day.
    If you are worried about the pup causing mischief while you are gone you can buy a baby gate and install it so the pup only has access to one room (kitchen or laundry makes for easy 'accident' cleanup) or you can buy a crate to keep the pup in while you are gone.

    I have 3 newfoundland and one Border collie x that have free run of the house when we are not home. I use a crate ( at night and when not home) and the umbilical system ( when home) to toilet train mine...There-after it is free roam. So far no damage has been done, except to one pile of mail

    When you first get your puppy, if you don't want it to sleep with you in the bedroom, you probably should sleep in the same room that your puppy would be sleeping in so they get accustomed to your smell and less stress on them from leaving their mum.

    I reckon your pup should sleep somewhere close to you, not isolated on the other side of the unit where no one sleeps.

    I agree with Kaer..I have been known to sleep with my hand in the box, where puppy was sleeping

    I would check the bylaws of your building/complex with the strata managers. Does your building allow pet dogs?

    We lived in a no dog building and someone moved in with a dog- that annoyed EVERYONE by barking and then bit a child in the foyer while waiting for the lift. It really caused a big headache for everyone, and ended up in a legal thing (against building bylaw and eviction with appeals bla bla bla)
