For those of you that work long hours, you cannot expect to crate your puppy all day and all night, and not see behavior issues arise. If it is the case that you work long hours a few days a week, we recommend that you purchase an iris pen. These pens give the puppies the ability to play and use the bathroom (purchase a pee pad and holder) during the days that you are gone. If you are going with this option still crate at night.
Running Leash for Teathering:
To assist in Training we teach during our puppy 101 class that tethering is a great tool! This not only keep your puppy by your side so it doesn’t pee/poop in the house or get into things, but it also teaches them to watch you and helps with leash training! If you have the same issue we do where we are wearing pants without belt loops to tie the leash to, this running leash is a great tool!
Shop Bells for Bell Training:
