Mudpups Posted September 19, 2007 Report Share Posted September 19, 2007 Its official, just one more sleep and we can pick up my baby boy from his breeder! I am so excited I feel like a kid at christmas! I have become a dog toy shop-a-holic (Tia, our Shar-Pei is not in the least bit interested in toys, but I hope she learns to be more like a dog with a puppy in the house) and I have barely slept all week - yeah how dumb is that just before I bring a little puppy into the house who will wake me up during the night to go potty! Everything is all sorted for him, toys, leads, collar, crate etc. I plan on clicker training him and also toilet training using the crate and the umbilical method (once he learns to walk on lead) - although as we are home virtually all the time I worry that this may cause separation anxiety when we do have to go out, so I am hoping that having everyone in the family supervise him on lead, and giving him yummy/interesting toys and treats when he has crate/alone time will avoid SA developing. LOL - but he is my first BC so please feel free to shoot holes in my plan, I'd rather a change of plan now than try and reverse the effects of a mistake on our part. I think I am about to hyperventilate! Look out for lots of baby photos:) Michelle soon-to-be-BC-mum Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
