I have brother and sister puppies, half shitzu, half pomeranian.
They are 8 weeks old.
I am looking for ways to train them.
They have slept in my bed for the 2 nights they've been here, and peed at the end of my bed.
I've put them in the bathroom with paper, food and water during the day.
I got them leashes, but they are not the easiest puppies to walk, considering there are 2 puppies together, underfoot and playful.
I am seriously thinking about the crate training. BUT, the first day we had them, at night, when we went to bed, I tried to leave them boarded up in the kitchen, but they cried (very loudly!) until I went and brought them to bed.
all I can say is HELP!!!
my shitzu-poodle passed away last weekend of Kidney disease, and I had her for her whole 12 years, so puppy training is foreign to me!
Even she wasn't completely trained, so I know I did something wrong with her, had a newspaper for 12 years in my house.
This is why I am leaning towards crate training. Also, I am thinking with crates, then Brother and Sister (like the Berenstein Bears) will have their own "house" right?
Plus, I have a 3 year old, so it may be an escape for them from him sometimes. (But he is really good with them.)
any advice appreciated....
