Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

and just because she's doing okay now doesn't really mean much. It's very good that she seems to be settling in well, but my pups were good their first few days to a week at home because it was a new environment and they didn't really know how to react. Then after that's when the training got a little harder and they tested their boundaries ever since.

Welcome to the forum! wave Diesel and Xiah are very cute!

But the breeder let you bring Xiah how at 5 weeks??

Yeah, yeah I know :C I feel like a bad person. What do you do when you've already paid for the little baby though? I know her mom and dad were both checked on hips and eyes, I was rather irate when I had to come pick her up yesterday though. She's asleep against my leg right now.

It's really shitty that the breeder did that, poor baby Sad At least she has Diesel, he should help her a lot growing up.

I keep him in a 15x15 foot dog run during the day (it's the best I have) and he comes in at night, I've been putting the two together as much as possible, I'm even thinking of letting them sleep in the same crate (I was going to ask everyone what they thought about that). Diesel was teaching her how to play and was very gentle. *SIGH* I just feel like biting my tongue. I posted just yesterday before she told me to come get her that she was staying until 8 weeks. On the bright side I think Lucy (our golden lab) was about 4-5 weeks when she came home from the shelter (she was a orphaned stray) so I have some experience.

I think I'll feel better once I move. Diesel will have the full run of the house then (I don't have a choice in the matter right now) and hopefully have a nice fenced in yard. I think next time I will just go through a rescue instead of getting a puppy. And if I DO get a puppy, I might ask for past adoption references (can I do that?).

it's not good idea to put them in the same crate together. We have a previous thread on here about that...dogs need their time apart too, just like people do Smile

I didn't think it was a good idea, but I thought I'd ask Smile Diesel's crate training lasted for about 2 days when he was a puppy. For some reason those 2 days stuck with him because I put him in a crate when he got fixed and he never made a peep. He is very quiet though. He's only barked 5 times maybe since I've had him and he doesn't howl or anything. I actually heard him talking for the first time about a week ago. It was great, I loved it.

Yeah I kennel mine together once in a while, but I know Embry likes his alone time. Since she's so young, you don't want her to get super attached to Diesel because if they ever needed to be separated you don't want her to get anxious and upset. Definitely make sure that they both have alone time with you.

I have a training session that I do with Diesel morning and night every day. I'm going to work with Xiah in the next week or two. She is with me about 22/7 right now , but I am working on putting her in the small dog pen outside so she gets used to being by herself.

I think it's about time for a good walk and for me to go put her in her playpen for a while. I don't want her to sleep TOO much and not sleep tonight Smile
