    Gorgeous puppy

    Crate training - I was so glad I had Frosty happy in hers this weekend - as we were out competing all weekend and it meant I could safely leave her when I needed to go do stuff like help set up or pack up. The dog next to us was pegged and another dog attacked it when the owner was lulled into a false sense of security. fortunately the pegged dog was very shaggy so all the little attack dog got was fluff - but the pegged dog was quite freaked out by it. The right soft crate (for experienced and happy in crate dogs) can keep off bugs, and small children too.

    And then if your dog is ever injured and has to spend time at the vet - he's not freaked by the accomodation.

    for my puppy, it was a bed in a cardboard box (cheap to replace when chewed), with old blankies and tshirts in it, and a flat lead long enough to go under me and tie to the other side of my bed - so dog couldn't move without me knowing. If she got up - we went outside and were boring until S&P were done then lots of praise and back to bed. I also set my alarm for two times between 10:30pm bed time and 7am get up time and took her out then as well.

    Had very few messes inside the house. Her nose goes down, I distract her and take her outside. But there was a lot of standing around outside - being boring until puppy performed. If it took 20 minutes in the rain (take the puppy out into the middle of the lawn if he doesn't want to get his feet wet). Often puppy would rather be inside, and opts to hold on and try to go back inside, but you really need to wait the puppy out.

    There is nothing worse that waiting in the middle of the yard at 2am in the morning for a puppy to go to the toilet.

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.

    I agree with making the crate a normal and comfortable bed. The worst thing is dragging it out when you are going to the vet or boarding kennels and having it be a dreaded site. Similarly, I hate dogs on chains, precisely because if they are attacked, they can't escape, and on properties, they can sometimes hang themselves or knock over their water. ALWAYS cages, roofed and at least partially shaded, even if there is a kennel in the cage, already.
