My new puppy

Ty he is awesome so far I was expecting things to be rough at first never had a puppy before only adopted older dogs so I'm pleasantly surprised so far just waiting for puppy crazies to start lol
He whines in his play pen the first couple days but now he only does it when I first leave the room then settles down till he hears me again
He's so smart too! Already knows sit and only had him since Wednesday!
I have a Great Dane mix and my son has a bully mix both from the pound they want to play with him but they don't know how sprocket gets scared I think and runs around barking and prancing on them then runs around again lol the big dogs don't know what to do they just sit there and watch sprocket jump they do try to bounce toward him but he runs it's really cute watching them trying to figure out how to play with a little dog

Congratulations on the addition of Sprocket to your family. I have 2 Havs and 2 larger dogs. Mine get along well but I ALWAYS supervise their time together. Bigs dogs don't always recognize that a heavy pounce or paw or overexcited mouthing on these little dogs could injure. Just keep interactions between them calm rather than allowing them to play full out. That's one of the reasons I have 2 Havs. The little boys can play full out with each other and the big dogs can play that way with each other. Then when they play together energy levels are somewhat moderated.

My new puppy

I'll definitely be watching them interact I won't leave them alone they r too big he's way too small
Maybe one day I can get another small dog but not for a while definitely think 1 puppy at a time is enough lol I've been wanting a puppy for over a year just glad I finally get to experience puppyhood Tomorrow we will be visiting my sister she has 5 children all excited to c puppy I told them they won't be able to pick him up this time I think it's a good rule till I c how they all do
I don't want to overwhelm him but they've been begging to see him everyday
Any advice? I want him to love kids my sis 2 oldest kids are a little scared of dogs except for my 8yr old Great Dane mix they love her she's so calm and sweet they said they want one just like her when they grow up lol
Excited to see how this goes I hope everyone has fun this Christmas
Merry Christmas everyone

have everyone sit in a circle as far apart as possible and play ping pong puppy ...Puppy Ping Pong
. Puppy ping pong is a great game to play to build a knee jerk reaction to hearing their name and running towards their owner. The game can include many people. Each person will have a handful of delicious meaty high value treats. One at a time someone will call the puppy, be very exciting and happy to encourage the puppy to run fast towards them. Once the puppy reaches the person calling they will touch the dog’s collar and then reward with the meaty treat. Encourage clients to give 1 to 3 treats, one at a time to avoid having a puppy dine and dash (knowing they will only receive one treat, grab it and run off to the next person). Stress the importance of being able to touch the dog’s collar because it can save the dogs life. Have another person call the puppy and reward the same way. The puppy will run back and forth between the people playing learning that coming when called results in fun and that he gets delicious stinky treats. 10 min.s max.
