Sorry - is this a puppy? We kept our puppy in a box by our bed. They are pack animals and don't do very well alone, especially right after taken from their mom & family. (If it's not a puppy, I'm all wet! )

When we got Shadow about 6 years ago, he slept in a box in our room, and the first night he cried a little bit, but I would reach down and comfort him. The second night he didn't sleep in the box, but he slept just fine. Since he know his "alphas" were in the room.

Yeah, she's probably MUCH smaller than a lab puppy! I'm not the authority on dogs, but I do know about them being pack animals, and they actually usually like a den or crate to sleep in, but I think she'd be happier sleeping in the same room as you, just in a box or crate so she feels and is safe. Just my opinion!

She is asleep right now. I might bring her in here if she wakes up in the next few hours. Never disturb a sleeping baby.

do you have some uncooked rice??? and an old sock with needle and thread>>/?
If so make her a rice heater ... place rice in sock and stitch till secured ... microwave for about 30 seconds... place it in the box or crate with baby... she is a bit young to be away from mom but not much...

Since she's a little pup I'm sure you could keep a crate in your room. As kluchetta said, they are pack animals and need company. With the crate, she will still be by you, but will not be able to chew on things, potty on carpet etc... We kept Willy's crate in my parents bedroom until he was about a year old. After the puppy stage he still slept in it, but we no longer needed to shut the door. He would probably still sleep in it, but he outgrew it and a larger one was just out of the question (lack of space) a lot of people leave their crates up well after the puppy stage so the dog has their "own" space to feel safe and comfty in.

what size do you think I will need. She is a pomaranian she will be at the most 7 pounds. She will be small. I just hope she sleeps better. Now I need to get her to use the pad or the dog litter because she will drown if she goes outside because t is non stop rain. She has had 4 accidents.

for now a hardsided kitty size crate is best .... you can put a blankie and a toy for her and shell be safe and secure

She has a carrier that I take her in the car in put she barks and whinnes the whole way. I do not mind the barking because that is just me., but I know Pomaranian stress out. I don't want that to happen.

Potty training is SOOOOOOO much easier when you crate train and make use of the crate.

One thing I noticed is she only eats a few morsels several times a day. I am taking her to vet on Monday. In order to get her in sooner I have to pay for emergency services because my town is small and I live about 45 min from the vet. It is like little house where I am at. My town has 200 people and the kids go to school with 271 kids that includes my 3. So as you can tell we have nothing but farms around and mountains. She has such tiny poop. I think she is actually peeing in the box but pooping on the carpet. I see when she pos but there was never pee so I took a training pad and it is right beside the box so I can see if she is going. I know she is drinking and she is happy really happy. She is acting just like puppys do.

A big thing with potty training is picking a "potty spot" in the house it would be the piddle pad or newspaper (or doggy litter ) and outside pick a corner, and take her there as soon as she goes out- AlWAYS praise her when she goes in the right spots As far as her whining when in her carrier- I would not use it in place of a crate- she already associates it with the vet which is why she is all whiny and nervous. I would reccomend the wire crates, where she can see you better the pet carriers just are'nt as open.

Why the emergency vet visit? Are you concerned with her food intake?

She is a pomeranian and they get hypoglycemic. She doesnt seem to eat alot but seems like a normal puppy. She is so sweet and affectionate and at the same time loves to play. Is very smart. Already knows what she can and can not chew on. I just think she isnt sure about the potty thing. She is only 8 weeks so I know it can take a few months which I can do I just want to do it right the first time and not confuse her. I put the pad right next to the litter box. If she chooses to go on it I will take the box away. She likes to go in the box and take all the litter out so am thinking of taping the pad just to the box. What do you think.

I'm sorry I can't picture what you are trying to say My suggestion is: since I assume she uses her box, place the pads or newspaper underneath and around the sides so if she has an accident, or throws all the litter out it'll be easie to clean up



This is the set up I use for the cats litter box. Makes clean-up a breeze

Yes that is what I did. I noticed she did poop but I see no spots that she has peed in. So I have no clue if she is peeing in the box or just holding it in or somewhere that I can not find LOL. She is so darn little. I do not smell pee either. They say these are puppy pads But I think I got the wrong kind. I might try the ones that have a smell.


BTW nice diagram

Well she did pee on the tile. It is only a little bit I guess am so use to having a bassethound I was not use to the little amount LOL. I soaked it up and took the napkins and dripped the urin on the pad and I left the napkins stuck to the pad I will remove it in a min. The pad is taped down so I could not soak it up before that. Then I took and cleaned the tile with zero oder. She seems to be just standing at the pad sniffing it. Sort of like I did not pee here I peed over there. I wonder what she is thinking.

yeah, she's probably like hey, whats going on here? she should catch on pretty quick How long have you had her? Once again, the biggest trick in poddy training is praise always give her a good petting/ treat when she goes where she is supposed to. Positive re-inforcement works wonders. Does she potty outside? Or are you trying to litter train her? The earthy smell of dirt may help her along as well. If you are trying to litter train her, mix a little dirt in with it

UPDATE

Things are great. Baby was 11 weeks yesterday and she sleeps from 10 - 7am. She plays eats and sleeps during this time. She never makes a noise. Also if I have to have the door open or am cleaning I put her in the pin and she lays right down... She also pees and poops on her pads. She might still have a few accidents with the poop but she is awsome and doing so good. She is smart.
