Meet Jellybean!

Jellybean was born January 17. We picked him up yesterday.
He's too cute. Pictures do not do him justice.

He was the last of the litter to get a forever home. He weighs 2 pounds and a bit. We haven't gone to the vet yet(we go Monday) so we're not positive. Our scale was made for humans and doesn't do ounces very well.

Jellybean is a little explorer but always comes back to check on me or whoever it is he's hanging out with. He is our older poodle's shadow, when the poodle is in the same room. The poodle is teaching him how to play with some of his toys. One toy is SO funny to watch him play with. It's our poodle's and is almost as big as he is!
We got brand new toys for the puppy and the poodle has been stealing them one by one. Poor pup only has two toys left!

We're all so happy right now! Jellybean is settling in and is eating, drinking, etc.

How can you get a pup to like his crate more? He went in once for a few seconds but after that will have nothing to do with it.
Also- our poodle licks Jellybean's back constantly unless we tell him no. Any tips on that?

Welcome to the forum! Maybe your poodle is just keeping the new Hav clean? At least there are not fighting!

Just looking at your baby made me smile. What a cutie! It's amazing that your poodle seems welcoming to the intruder so soon. Watching them interact on a daily basis is so much fun.

Lily loved her crate at first and would like to go have downtime in there. Puppies need alot of sleep so its important that they like their "cave". I put a big fluffy queen size down pillow in hers now (I can just change the case) but when I first got her I had these really soft fleece blankets and snuggle bags. I put a larger sift toy in there to rest her head on when she napped and she had a blanket with her littermates scent on it so that went in there too. I always gave her treats when she went in, wether I asked her to or not. Also, I cover the crate with a dark blanket, it helps them feel less exposed and more like they are in a den. I might make sure your poodle doesnt go inside of it-you want him to feel like he can go in there and take a break if he wants to and its all his. Good Luck!

Welcome! Jellybean is adorable! Such a cute face. I love the dark muzzle!

Since the poodle (what is his name) has acquired most of the other new toys you bought for Jellybean, he probably just thinks Jellybean is another toy for him???

When we started Augie in the crate, I would just put him in it for short periods at a time, starting with about 30 seconds, with the door closed, and then opened and let him out and praised him. (I don't even believe treats were involved here at that time as he was just 8 wks and I am sure I didn't even have any around). I just increased the time bit by bit. Some dogs seem to take to it better. Good luck.

These Tigerdreamz Three way trundle beds are amazing. This is what I meant by fleecy blanket. You roll the top over and the pup can snuggle inside, all curled up or you can flatten it out and lay it across the bottom of the crate.

Jellybean is a brillant name!
