My last puppies were already crate trained when I got them. Now that Java is only six weeks it's like she whines when we even get out of her site. She ALWAYS has to be with us, every where we go. So far she has seemed to have adopted the couch, which I have to say I'm not too fond of. She HAS to be on HER level, all the time. I think that is where she gets wanting up on the couch all the time. It's like she is really depending on us to be her siblings it seems. So now... I'm so lost on how to start kennel training since she only weighs four pounds. She's just so small. We have a medium size kennel. We finally just put her bed in there and she has been getting in it on her own a little bit today. I've been keeping the gate open for her. Do you think she's too young to start kennel training? She seems to be so needy to others I'm sort of worried about it. Any thoughts or ideas?
