Default New Girl: Luci

Greetings from Tennessee!

I am bringing home my new toy poodle just after Christmas. She is a little red/white female, 8 weeks old... she'll be 11 weeks when I get her. I am new to poodle puppies so am looking forward to reading here and getting advice, and making new friends.

Happy Holidays,

Default Thank you

Thank you ladies for the welcome, I appreciate it!

I can't wait to get my hands on Luci in a few weeks! She's such a cuddle bug. I know I'll have questions about house training and plenty of other things too, so I'm sure you'll be hearing from me again soon!

Speaking of which, any advice on crate training and size of crate before she arrives? I've been given a nice crate which I know is too large for her as it's for a medium dog, but was hoping it might work anyway. I can always get another, but maybe some of you can share your experiences with them.

Thanks again!

If the crate has a divider you can use it with the divider placed so that Luci doesn't have more room than to stand up turn around and lay down again. You want the crate to help you housebreak and since dogs normally won't want to rest in pee or poo this is why you make the crate area so small.

Since you have some time to get ready, go to dogstardaily.com and download (for free) Ian Dunbar's book "What to do before you get your puppy." He is an awesome positive reinforcement method person who really has great techniques for puppy training.

Do you know if they make dividers for crates that don't come with one? I guess I could make one somehow and attach it to the crate wire on the inside...

Thanks!

I'm not sure about that, but there are plenty of places to look for one online. I got my soft crates (for travel) from a site called dogbedsandcrates.com......maybe there.
