IMO, It's worth a try at least for a couple of weeks. I've never gone the DDC route, though, so others may have stronger opinions one way or the other

Guys sorry if always at asking about everything. I just want to make sure Im doing what's best for her. OK here is another question by me.
I finally found a doggie day care in my area and as I mentioned before I'm working 12 hours in the morning during Thursdays and Fridays so I thought I'll leave her there the problem is the day care center closes at 8pm and I wont be out of office till 9pm. So the owner of the day care suggested that I'd leave her there overnight and come pick her up by saturday morning (she'll stay there for 2 days). For all of you who has experience will this set-up be okay?
It has its pros and cons but im still not sure..

Well, I got her to come out due to the fact that she wanted to pee..but after doing her thing she runs to a corner in my apartment and lies down/sleeps there..Is this because she's new to the place?
I sit beside her in the corner to let her feel my company but she just gets bored and sleeps..

Guys is it normal for dogs to stay on their crates when they are in a new place?
Just got her but she wont come out of her crate, and sleeps all the time..I think she got tired because of the travel but still I'm a bit worried..I also dont want to force her. or should I?

Yes use that area with a go potty command and treat, a command should make the transition very easy!

|dawnandjr||I actually start the potty training process with my puppies when they start to walk. They have a pen with an area of wood shavings that I buy at the farm store. It is kinda like cat litter. Not sure what you would have there that would be the same. News paper is fine to use as well. I think the laundry room floor is fine. Its easy to transition to the outdoors. Any accidents (pee, poop in house), take to the potty area. This gives them the permission that is where they should go. If that makes sense. Any time the puppy goes potty where it should, give a reward and also start using a command. Like 'go potty' or some say 'hurry up'. This will help later for training outside, and when you dont have time to wait (like if its raining out).|

Guys, another question from me. Hope you can give any advice as I am having anxiety attacks(pure excitement, as I just cant stop thinking of things to do with her like training stuff and her toys) just thinking of zasha when she'll be transferring to my place.
So here goes:
Today I was thinking of how to potty train her, shes 8 weeks old so i think that's the right time to start training her as she is like a sponge during that time (eager to learn) but if I bring her outside, the apartment owner has his own dogs which are already more than a year old. I'm afraid shes gonna get bullied or traumatized by them barking at her (these are local dogs by the way, rampant here in our country) also, I'm worried she might get diseases as she still not complete with all the shots needed. I only want her to go outside until shes completed will all the shots. is this the correct mind set? or am I just paranoid?
So I was thinking since I have a laundry area (concrete floor), it is outside the apartment but still within my premises will this place be okay for her to go potty?
Im thinking of covering a wide area first with a newspaper and have her potty there. When she chooses a spot I will constantly bring her there with a newspaper as a marker.. Will this work?
Also, can I still potty train her to go outside (yard/grass area) when shes had her complete shots after I trained her to potty on my laundry area?

|OriginalWacky||Consistency is more important when it comes to feeding time than exactly what time you feed. Because of my oddball schedule, for quite a while my dogs were fed at around 4pm and 2am. Puppies and cats were fed at 4pm, 9pm, and 2am. All were healthy and happy for the most part, they didn't care if it was am or pm when they ate, just that they got to eat.|
