So we just moving into our house last Friday and the first night our 3 year old Great Dane was a little nervous about the move, so we put his bed in our room and let him sleep with us. (Before he would sleep in his crate in a different room) So its been a few days now and it seem to be working out for us.
So here comes the question. We are getting a GSD pup at the end of November.
Anyways, when we first get him should we allow him to sleep in the room like we have done with our Dane, or should we have him sleep in his crate to start the training?
A little side note. I work days and my wife works swing, so our Dane is only in his crate for about 2-4 hours for 4 days a week and the same would be for the puppy.
So would that be sufficient amount of time for crate training for the puppy or is more need? i.e sleeping in the crate?
