First of all - breathe!
That is a really long time in a crate for a 14 week puppy. My puppy at that age was going to bed about 10, potty break...
I would have no chance of keeping the baby away from dog hair with my Labrador. I’ve even spotted a rogue one in his bottle once or twice, the...
I have a 3 year old Labrador and a 16 week baby.
We just carried on as normal with the dog.
Brought the baby home, let him have a good sniff and...
Yeah that’s about 19 hours of crate time I would say that is far too much.
Especially at 6 months, my dog was out of the crate by about 8 months...
I’m not going to be as nice as the others - no you can’t bloody leave a dog for 3 days, who in their right mind would think that was acceptable?!...
Are you actually going to stay with him?
He sounds like an absolute monster and should be reported to the police for animal cruelty!
It’s really early days. The poor thing is probably terrified!
I would take the crate upstairs and let him sleep next to their bed for a week or...
16 weeks is still a tiny baby. I wouldn’t be concerned at all with that.
5/6 months is generally how long it takes them to be fully housetrained.
No I wouldn’t give her the chews.
And I wouldn’t go back to the trainer that told me to.
I don’t. I have months and months of training - a ridiculous amount of patience and lots of kindness. And some scars to prove it.
I now have a...
A dog doesn’t have a “tantrum”. They don’t have the emotional capacity to have a tantrum.
She is playing and getting over excited.
All you have...
I would just leave her be.
If she doesn’t want to swim, she doesn’t have to swim.
Me and my OH work full time and it can be done.
But you need lots of support and sacrifices have to be made.
For the first few weeks I took time...
That’s probably a large part of the problem. Pick one option and stick to it consistently.
For us, we put him in another room or his crate every...
Mine was 1.9kg at 9 weeks. He was sooo small. Oh he was delicious.
Then he got huge and he now weighs a healthy 25kg :)
It all comes right in the end. So try not to worry and just enjoy them because they grow up so fast ❤️
If it makes you feel any better I have a black lab and he is absolutely bonkers.
I’ve never known a dog like him in my life. He can open...
It is never acceptable to use a prong collar.
Training and perseverance is the only way.
Can I ask why the Puppy stays outside? Does she get much interaction?
It’s just come up on mine too x
