Hello! I am sorry to post another thread on here!
I was told I would be able to get my puppy around 8-10 weeks old. I'm a teacher and when my puppy would be 10 weeks old, is right when I finish up school for the year. My breeder has just told me that I have to get my puppy next weekend (8 weeks old) because they are going on vacation!!
That means that I have 2 weeks where I have to work with a brand new puppy at home!!!! Not my intention :\
Luckily, I teach at a school 3 minutes away. I can leave a lunch and let the puppy out to go to the bathroom. That would mean I would put the puppy in his crate at 8am and then come home around 12 to let him go potty. Then I would be back around 3:15. After the two weeks, I'm home all day everyday for 2 months.
My mother is going come a few days here and there when she can. I took a personal day for the first Monday after I get him.
Should I leave a pee pad for him right outside his crate and gate it off? Inside the crate? Will he be able to hold it?
I know this is not ideal I don't want to traumatize the puppy in any way!!!
P.S. I still don't have a name and now I have a week to decide!!!! ahh any cute name suggestions?
P.P.S. I am REALLY excited to meet this little guy. He's adorable! I just don't want to be a bad mom the first 2 weeks!
