Bramble is here!

Hey guys! Bramble is now here 🙂 we collected him on Friday. He’s very tiny, and very fluffy! So much character... he loves playing, he’s already learnt to fetch. And so far no accidents in the house; his breeders have done a great job.

The only ‘challenge’ so far is crying when he’s left alone, or thinks he’s been left alone. It’s early days, but it’s heart breaking to hear him. It’s already not as bad as Friday night, so I hope he’ll get accustomed to his new life without his siblings! Would welcome some encouragement on this!

Congratulations on your cute new addition! I remember asking myself on several occasions “What did I do? or was I crazy to get a puppy?”.
Of course this was after a night with poor sleep or a potty accident or going outside every 20 minutes because the puppy would not pee or poop. My Molly used to stand up in her crate, stick her nose through the bars, and scream! Just remember that this is a temporary learning phase for your puppy. There are so many new things they have to learn about living in your home and adjusting to your routine. Be firm in your commitment to confine while you are house training them and before long the protesting will stop. Eventually they will earn their freedom in your home and look at their crate or pen as their den or safe space and seek it out on their own.

Thanks all for your replies. Very encouraging so far... the crying is vastly reduced, and he slept all night. No accidents in the house yet. He also seems to be more ‘independent’ than the first two days; he’s a little more content to chew his toys on the other side of the room.

Congratulations! He’s a cutie. I did follow advice I read somewhere that you leave the puppy, to start with, for a few minutes, as you go into another room, close by. Then come back and pet/play with the puppy. Once he’s comfortable with that, you go out a little farther, and also start extending the time you are gone. Your puppy will learn that you leaving doesn’t mean you aren’t coming back. Having toys and chewing sticks to play with while you are not there help a lot and are highly recommended.

Welcome Bramble & family! He's surely very busy playing, learning, and napping.

When you depart, don't make a big deal, put him in his crate, and go.
When you get back, same thing, no big deal.
They are a needy breed. I know they can get quit "loud" when left alone.

Congratulations on your new cutie! Puppies are a lot of work and a lifetime commitment but they are so worth it.
