I just brought our new puppy home yesterday evening. She is 8 weeks and and so cute of course I did not get any sleep last night but that's ok I realize she is going through a big change. What have you all done when you got a new puppy I mean I kept her in the crate all night but took her out 3 times but during the day since I am home so I have not been crating her. I did try this morning and she cries and cries. Am I making a mistake by not making her stay in during the day? I know everybody seems to have a different opinion. I also figured I should give her some time before I start trying to make her do certain commands am I wrong? I guess I just figure she has been going through enough stress so why not wait a little while. Thanks it has been over 10 years since I have had a puppy and have seem to forgot everything I did back then.
