One more week......and some questions
Since I posted first last week I have been enjoying reading all your posts. Our little guy - yet unnamed, is coming home in a week. He is going to be just 8 weeks and 3 days. If we didn't get him then, we'd have to wait until after our 2 week vacation (we're taking him to our summer home with us) and then my daughter will be gone for the next month, so this timing is much better. Please tell me he won't be too young! The breeder thinks he will be all ready to go.
I have one friend who has a Hav (no one else knows what they are, of course!) and she went shopping with us today! We plunked down a huge amount of money for a crate, ex-pen, toys, food, etc..... but it was fun! My friend was full of information.
She, and another friend, insist that you really don't need to do the newspaper training as long as you crate train and are home (I am, mostly)
to take them out regularly. What do you all think? I would prefer them not peeing in the house, but is this wise??
Also, did anyone get a towel with the scent of the mother on it for the crate? Did you bring it to the breeder, or send it first? How did that go?
Thanks for all of your support and helpful advice!
