I simply warned neighbors when I had them that a new pup was arriving and it would be a couple of probably noisy nights. Offered to buy then a pizza and some beer to make up for it and asked what nights were better for their schedules. Kind of planned it so pups first nights crated were their days off.Any advice on training puppies out of whining/barking/crying to ensure there aren't endless noise complaints? Also, do your dogs bark when people pass in the apartment hallways when you aren't home? Suggestions on avoiding?
Was thinking of a camera system and training it by recreating the situation and slowly working it.
IF you do it right puppies settle in easy and seldom create much disturbance. It's that so few people set themselves up for success.
I either put the crate right next to my bed or had the pups right in bed with me. I very rarely had much disturbance. We started the daytime routine in short sessions when neighbors were at work, so not there to hear any ruckus.
People walking by: if you ignore it the dog probably will as well. If not just discourage and distract right from the start.
