i wouldn't tether a puppy. i would worry
about the pup getting tangled in
whatever it was tethered with. i never
tether a dog or puppy any where. my
pup came home at 9 weeks old. the crate
was in the livingroom. one of us took him
out every 2 hours over night.
going out every 2 hours was probably
a bit much. during the day we took him
out every 15 minutes slowly
increasing his time to a 1/2 hour, 45 minutes,
1 hour and so on.
