Husband and I are the new proud owners of a little black miniature schnauzer called Wikus who is 8 weeks old. He's been home for 6 days now. We've never had a dog before - I had a dog when I was a child but can't remember the details and husband has never owned a dog before.
I'm reading a lot of material about being a pack leader and how to communicate with my pup. Toilet training is interesting, he's really good during the day so far, asking at the door to do outside, but from about 4.30pm he starts going all over the house. Tonight he weed on the bedroom carpet while I was looking at him! But I digress.
My actual question is: Wikus likes to sleep on my lap, or on my feet, or against my feet, or husband's feet. When he's been asleep for a while I put him in his bed and he'll stay there until he's done sleeping, even if he wakes up and looks around he'll go back to sleep there. But to start with he wants to go to sleep touching someone.
I'm not sure if this is setting us up for trouble down the track, or is normal puppy behaviour, since he'd be accustomed to sleeping in a pile-up with his siblings.
Is it OK to let him sleep on/against us?
He sleeps successfully in his crate at night.
