as most of you pepole already know, if you read any other of my message's i have a puppy and we had him for two weeks and last night was the WORST, look i know he's just a puppy but... what he did was also was just him,but he was just bord,and what he did is, DESTROYED my kitchen! a toy riped in half, scrach marcks on the door, pee and poop everywhere, and paper was on the grond. we put him in our barn with his things for the day and all we can think of is a cage but any other idea's!!!
crate training is the way to go. I'm shocked at the amount of people who think that they can leave a puppy unattended in their house and believe that they can come back to find everything in order. Would you leave a 4 year old child alone with a sharpie marker and white walls? (not that I condone crating children...) Crate training allows the puppy to be kept in a secure area at times when you are unable to watch them. That includes times when you're at work, out shopping, or even just sitting at the computer, engrossed in forums about pets! It may seem cruel at times, the puppy may cry and whine, but after a while, the pup will come to see the crate as his/her den and will seek it out when he/she is tired. Make sure the crate is only big enough for the pup to stand up in, turn around and lay down in. Otherwise, you may find that your pup will use it as a toilet. One or two small toys can help to keep them occupied - just make sure the toy isn't one that can have choking hazards (either small pieces or a toy that the pup can chew to bits). Crates are GREAT for helping housebreak a puppy. I still get awestruck when I find my 3 month old pup has made her way to the crate on her own because she knows it's getting close to bed time! Like I said, in time, your pup will learn to love the crate.
I agree, crate training is the way to go. All my dogs are crate trained. When the Sealyham goes out, before I can get myself in the door, he is already in his crate. I have crates stacked two high in the kitchen. They learn which crate is there, and will even jump up to the top level and stand there and wait. Because they know good dogs who jump in there crates, get cookies. We were at a show once, the dogs were in the box truck owned by the handler I was working for. I went out in the morning, apparently I did not get a crate door shut tight, but the dog was still in the crate, and never attempted to get out. She knew she was where she belonged.
