Hi all, Long time no see! This weekend my partner is going to pick up a new friend for Evie (she's going to be so jealous!) He's a bit of an accident ... long story short he is an unwanted puppy belonging to an extended family member who we are going to take in and love and adore Anyway...... he is an approx. 4 month old kelpie who I'd like to crate train from day one as I wish I'd done it with Evie. I've not crate trained a puppy before and I'm a bit unsure on where to start. I read the pinned thread on create training 101, but wasn't sure if since he's used to sleeping elsewhere if i need to do things differently? Initially I'd like to have him sleeping in his crate (in my room) at night time. Is this an unrealistic expectation? Evie sleeps in our room next to our bed. She either sleeps on the floor or sometimes chooses to sleep in her crate, but there's no reason why puppy wouldn't be able to see us and Evie if he was crated at night. Just very unsure as i haven't done this before... Thanks! Evie's mum.
