Welcome from NW Ohio..you'll be amazed by how fast she'll grow. Tessa wasn't excited about food treats for a couple weeks, but was very motivated after that. She also took about 2 months before she fell in love with fetch, it's her favorite thing now..

Thank you for that info!! I have been throwing major parties every time he goes to the potty. I am sure my neighbors think I an nutso! ha ha. But, it makes him so happy and his entire butt just wags and wags! ha ha.

I will def. try using a treat and toy to see what he reacts to best. We have been working on sit, so I will let you guys know how it goes! I am so excited to get started on this!

My husband thought I was so mean for crate training. But I had to remind him that if we want him to house train easily, and if we want him to have a safe haven, it is what we have to do. His crate is in our room now, and he whined for a good 15 minutes, but then slept through the night! *until 4:30* which I thought was AMAZING for his first night.

Thank you!! It is so funny you posted this because Gator just ate his first treat after a potty break! ha ha. I think it has a lot to do with him still getting used to being here with us and away from his dog family.

Maggie LOVES her Crate! All my dogs have loved their crates actually?
It's like it's they're own private get away where they can be safe and snug.
