Crate Training in Apartment
In preparation for my puppy coming home this weekend, I'm trying to cover all my last minute bases.
I am bringing home an 8 week old Czech WL puppy on Sunday, and am really really excited to have a new IPO prospect. I've been waiting for this for a long time.
The only thing I'm mildly concerned about is initial crate use. I live in an apartment, so the noise level makes me a little nervous. Does anyone have any experience with crate training puppies in apartments? I took work off the first two days of next week so that I could spend time bonding with him and trying to get him adjusted, and then I will be working a split shift when I return to work (a few hours at work in the morning, home for a few hours, and then a few hours at work in the afternoon).
I'm incredibly excited for this little man to be home, just trying to get all of my ducks in a row in terms of a game plan. I want to tackle crate anxiety/nuisance barking early and would greatly appreciate any advice/experience you guys have to offer!
