Crate training

All I can say is, I wish I would have done it the same way I am doing it now with my other dog. I picked up Gaia yesterday and with a successful car ride behind us and a first potty outside I was really looking forward to see how she was going to do in the crate. The first night was hard.. cause I slept on the floor next to her crate but she was wonderful and we only had to go out twice. Tonight I can already lay down in my bed and was able to put her in her crate without any whining whatsoever. I am really happy I started her out like this but I wonder how much easier some things would have been with my first dog if I had crate trained him from day one.

You must be happy. Yes crates help give the day structure. A pup sleeping the night in a crate is similar to the relief of a newborn sleeping the night through. Such a cute pup!
