An 8 week old puppy gets up at least every 2 hours to go potty...and getting a routine down of any sort is difficult. It is having a baby in the house.
Tucker our eldest wonderful dog, has been not exactly thrilled with this little ankle biter. But, as each day goes by, he is better...and much to his chagrin, she is staying.
We finally put a baby gate in the doorway of the laundry room, that helps a lot. She hates being confined, but when it's nap time, she loves it. So do I. It means I can get something done and she is safe.
I needed a separate bed just for her and made a little one from scraps and filled it with batting scraps! She loves it...and much to my joy one of the fabrics had Scotchguard! Good thing with an untrained puppy! She woke and piddle just came out all over her bed....and happily it just rolled off! And I rinsed it and sun dried it and its back to work. Yay!
Have a great day...
