I use a hard boiled egg slicer to get all pieces the same thickness so they dry evenly.

I could dehydrate chicken too and I may try that soon. I am too cheap to buy the packaged dehydrated/freeze dried stuff at the store!
Thanks for the tip! Thatís genius!!! Iíve bought a few bags of treats to see what she will like, but itís pricey. I guess we could make dehydrated liver too? The dogs love that, right? Or is liver too rich for a puppy?

You can certainly dehydrate liver. Just be careful to only use TINY BITS when she is so small. She'll be able to tolerate a bit more when she's older, but too much rich food too young can give them loose stools.

Just know once he goes in the bed he’s not going to go back in the kennel! Lol!!

This is the 2nd night in a row Stella slept totally through the night, no crying at all! 🙂 We got a long and I put it in her kennel with her last night. I wanna make that like her special treat because she loves it. I don’t put that much in there because I don’t want her to have to poop, just like one scrap of chicken and then a bit of peanut butter over the top to cover it.

Please be very careful giving peanut butter to a puppy. Yes, dogs love it but Ricky's Vet is totally opposed. It can give a dog pancreatitis, which can cause significant health issues and is even lethal in some cases.. The same goes for cheese of any type. I would not give either of these to a puppy. P.B. and cheese could be another reason for soft stools in a puppy. Wait until their internal organs have had a chance to mature, at least a year. And then give only in very small amounts (smaller than a pea) and only infrequently. There are much better, healthier treats for dogs that they will like equally well. Search this forum for "treats" for a lot of good suggestions.

Thank you so much for the info I had no clue! I feel so bad as she loves her kong, I’ll have to figure out what else I could cover it with. Does this include peanut butter flavored treats? As I have some dog treats that are for small dogs that are peanut butter flavored. They were in the petsmart coupon book for good puppy treats which is why I got them & she enjoys them quite a bit.

She has been sleeping through the night well no crying at all 3 nights in a row now, hope to keep the streak going!

Peanut butter flavored treats are fine.

Sheís growing up!

Perry wasn't convinced by the cookies - but I started feeding him his breakfast in the crate when I left and that made the crate a happier place and now will go into it on his own much more often.

I did that for Perry when he was barking a lot when we'd leave him in his crate when we left the house. I'm not sure if that was the reason we got over that, but I think it did contribute.

It does remind me though that I should do it again when we're at hotels and he's in his crate in the hotel room alone since we do still have barking issues there.

My guys are all happy in their crates. They would go in without a cookie. It's just a "family tradition".

Never really had a problem with using the crate. First night put her in the crate after going potty. She woke in the middle of the night. Took her right out to go potty and back in her crate. This time she starter whining and howling....just ignored her. Finally fell asleep, and that was the end of it. No trouble after that....sleeps through the night!

However, as easy as that was....Iím having a time with biting my feet as I walk. Stoping with a ďnoĒ command, stamping my feet, picking her up and putting her in her expen (solves the problem while in the pen), then itís back at my feet. She mouths them with her pointy baby teeth and sometimes trips me up! She thinks itís some sort of a game! I need help before she really trips me up!
