Ken didn't go for the idea of putting the little crate between us in bed. So I took the throw off the couch that I use and put it in her crate for her to sleep on, left the crate door open and closed the hexagon play yard that is in the middle of our family room. And I thought this room was full before. She did fine. I remembered when we got Brandy we blocked off the kitchen in the old house and left the crate open.
She is getting feistier each day as she gets to know us and the surroundings. She is already figuring out how to train me. I know I watch the Dog Whisperer and Victoria Stillwell and how a dog is not a child and should not be treated like one, bunk. These dogs have been bred for hundreds of years to be lap dogs and with people.
Miriam I am so glad you had the bichon experience. Brandy was the perfect dog, I wouldn't have gotten anything but. I can't believe this little girl, she pees on the pad in front of the door but she barks to go out to poop. She is only 8 wks old. We didn't have any problems potty training Brandy either. I don't know what age the breeder started taking them out to go potty but she did a great job.
Brandy traveled all over this country with us and was great in motel rooms. I got a small wire cage that I could put a seatbelt through so she would be safe in the car if we ever had a wreck. I had it high enough that she could look out the windows. This little girl will probably take her first trip in Feb.
Thanks girls. I think everyone should have a rx for one.
luv and hugs
