We kept trying and he has done 2 wees outside today, no poos as yet but all is not lost. He have made the garden more secure (blocking off the top level where there are only hedges at the back with a railway track behind them) so I am happy to let him out without a lead (im still out with him though...

I have tried ignoring Charlie when he gets like this as suggested but he just keeps on jumping up barking and then nips hands.
Should I leave the room, or put him in another room?

Im sure he just has too much energy and I cant wait untill we can take him out to run off some of this energy!!

I went and looked at lots of different foods today and think I found a pretty good one; Its called 'Barking Heads', the ingredients for the puppy food are as follows... Ingredients: Fresh Br...

Just searched for Orijen, your right is it is a bit pricey!! haha...

Should I discourage ALL mouthing or just when it hurts?

Hi everyone. I'm just wondering what we should do when it comes to mouthing; should we let him do it so long as its gentle (but then how far do we let it go) or do we stop play for a few secs EVERY time he mouths us? :? He is a 8 week pup has only lived with us for five days and he is doing brillian...

We did put him in our room in the end, but the problem came when as soon as we shut his crate he whined and whined. After 2 sleepless hours and shouting neighbours (who we had already spoken to to prepare them for the puppy's whines) we had decided to open the door because Matt needed to get some sl...
