Thanks for the feedback everyone!
We are definitely going to enroll him into a puppy kindergarten and possible even some more advanced training sessions, due to our upcoming busy schedules.
I go in the pen and show him some love and then change the papers. Having him go inside the crate and shutting the door is a good idea!
Sometimes he does gets wound up, but mostly we just toss around a toy with him and he goes and gets it, and then half the time he birngs it back, others he wants to play tug, which we dont engage in, or he goes the other direction and lays down and chews on it! Other times we just do some training, hes sitting before even knowing his name, go figure!
As far as walking, right now just trying to get him used to the leash inside, and very short walks back and forth and allowing him to explore small areas outside.
he gets very jumpy and hyper outside, and never wants to come back inside.
Im definitely going to use a harness. I dont want him to hurt himself and hes way too pully and jumpy now!
thank you! great to hear your story being in the same type of living situation!
My main thing with going potty is that hes been going on newspapers when we brought him home, was taught at breeder. We put a wee wee pad down and then newspaper on top of it.
Im wondering how long i should wait or if i should at all to switch him to just the wee wee pads.
