If it makes you feel any better, I got Dawn in one of my dogs eyes while giving him a bath as a puppy to treat fleas. When he's hot and active his eye gets red. Vision is still perfectly fine but it's easily irritable now. And my shepherd has an eye problem as well, he was chasing a neighbors dog through the fence and I tried to distract him with a stick and he ran right into it, he too has a red eye occasionally now. They're simply accidents, nothing life threatening, in fact probably character building if anything else. You don't want to baby your dog too much.

totally normal. Your pup is trying to figure out her limits and what rules are. When she is "naughty" don't laugh at it because it is cute. Put her in her crate for a nap (tired pups can get nippy)

She's still very much a baby...So, be understanding and kind, but don't ever indulge her when she's acting in a way that's not okay. Wait just a bit, let her calm down a little, then praise her and reward her for that! You are teaching a baby...keep that in mind. But she's also a smart baby with a mind like a steel trap, so keep that in mind as well. Don't baby the puppy, but make reasonable allowances for her youth!

Have her sit before opening the crate. And when you do open the crate, have her STILL sitting. If she stands, close the crate again. When you open the crate and she's still sitting down, that's when you allow her to come out of the crate. That way she learns if she sits, she'll be rewarded.

Your pup will learn to be home in her crate. You've gotten good advice for letting her out of the crate. I suggest that before you go out, take her for a bit of a walk or a game of fetch. Not right before you leave to do chores but maybe 15 minutes or so before. If you go play a game and then leave right away to go shopping your pup will start to think games mean you are going out and leaving her alone. If you play for 15 minutes, then put her in her crate for 15 minutes and then go out to shop or run errands, your pup will probably nap until you come home.

Then when you come home, let her out of her crate when she is calm and then take her outside to pee. When she is older she'll be able to handler her pee better. She's may be too excited to hold it right now.

If your pup is peeing when you let her out of the crate bring her outside immediately. As soon as I opened the crate I would pick my puppy up and carry him right to where I want him to pee. He learned really quickly this way because he never had a chance for accidents. Best of luck!!
