Have a 9 week old cavoodle - so so sweet. Would like to know if I am confusing her or setting myself up for trouble in the future. To set the scene this is what I am doing:
At night and when I am out during the day she is in a cage with bedding etc - the cage door is open with water outside cage then a puppy wee-pad. This is all sectioned off in the corner of a room and this room has access to back yard (but she doesn't have that in place yet). She seems ok when she is in the cage unless she knows I am up/around and she cries. I am not sure if this is an age thing or not.
Her cage is on our lower level with access to the back yard - however she spends alot of time on our living room level which only has access to the front yard.
Basically I am taking her out the front sometime to wee etc and sometimes out the back - does this confuse her?? She seems to like the grass on both areas. Eventually when I can trust her she will have access to the back yard.
Any insight appreciated!
