Thread: brixton pulled off an 8 hour work shift in his crate today.

  1. #1

    Default brixton pulled off an 8 hour work shift in his crate today.

    I've been working with him fastidiously in his crate and have been able to come home on lunch brakes to take him out of his crate. today I knew that I wouldn't be able to make it home from work during my break. I had to choose between using the exercise pen and taking a step back in his potty training or seeing if he could handle 8 1/2 hours in the crate. So far he's handled 4-6 hours with me at work. and 8 hours down over night. I was rooting for him the whole time I was at work. Around 6 hours I started getting finicky wondering if he was alright or if we was sad sitting in his pee. I raced home to find him in a dry crate and got him outside giving him plenty of praise. He went pee pretty quickly. He wasn't up for pooping so I brought him is for a bowl of chow and then he went out and handled his business like a champ. Tonight he got some great play time in a nice grassy complex near out place. He was excited about all the dew on the grass and me bringing his new tug toy to play with. we're calming down inside right now and I think he's ready to go to sleep.

    I'm pretty impressed by what this amazing little 10 week old can do. I can't wait for after work tomorrow we're gonna go out for a special dinner to celebrate his 10 weeks and his success in his crate.

    That's super that he did so well already! However just remember he is still just a baby, and things are constantly changing with his body for now, so he might have an accident at some point in the future still. But if you are both really lucky he won't. Oh.....and

    Way to go Brixton, you're such a big boy now! Curious what his special dinner's going to be ... did someone say steak? lol.

    In portland there are a few restaurants/pubs with outdoor patios that you can eat at with your pets. They have dog menus, but I've never looked at one since I didn't have a reason to. I'm sure he'll end up with something like chicken and rice.

    Yeah I don't expect him to do 8 hours on a regular basis yet. I am still heading home on my lunch today to take him out for a walk and a little play time.

    I'll try to borrow a camera from my room mate.

    GREAT JOB BRIXTON AND LOKI!

    Looks like the potty training is going really well! That's awesome for a not-even-10-week-old-yet!

    If he can hold it in a crate, chances are, he can hold it in the play yard soon. I cringe when a dog is in the crate for more than 4-6 hours at a stretch. They really need the movement/stimuli especially at that young age. So yeah, Brixton... you can do it buddy! Especially with the promise of a special dinner date! Play-yard, here we come!

    I got Bullied and loving it!
