I have 2 pom puppies that are 5 weeks old. Right now the momma is here with them but once I wean them and separate them from the momma Id like to housebreak them. I was wondering if it would be easier to put them both together in a crate or one for each. I have never used crates before, I just use gates on my kitchen, but I thought it would be nice to not have to use puppy pads every day. Anyone have any suggestions on this??
I have three pom puppy sisters and we first crated them together but quickly found out they need their "own place and space" and they are fine being apart for periods of time and when they are together they are back to being wild and crazy. There will be about a week or so of transition time where they whine and give you puppy-dog-eyes but trust me they will survive. This is also the sure fire way to know which dog has an accident in the crate. We were sure it was our smallest girl, but it turns out our middle girl has a potty problem. We couldn't tell when they were all together. Let me know if you want to see a pic of our set-up.
SweetGMichelle, I would LOVE to see a picture of your set up. Im really wanting to keep my two pom babies but I struggle with the idea of potty trianing two etc. How many poms total do you have?? Id love to see pictures of them too. Thanks for your help..
