How is first week going for new parents

Hi Everyone, we just took Stella home on Saturday. Lot's of questions. Wondering how anyone is doing. how is crate training going. Stella is a joy-but of course a handful. Still adjusting and nite time has been a challenge-also wondering how anyone is handling food. We are still serving her from the food that Ashley gave us-Purina Pro Plan for puppies- so confusing, vet said about 400 calories per day-but seems like this will offer her way more than that. We are giving her a generous 1/2 cup twice a day and then about 1/3 cup as part of her treats. Just curious. Hope everyone is surviving....I am already severely sleep deprived.

Please share!

Hi! We got Sage on Saturday. Turns out we got another puppy that is five days older, a bernedoodle, a few days before. We are not crate training but have created a play area with outside access. Any time I’ve tried crate training, it is too painful for me as well as too loud when they cry at night. In the past I’ve used a baby gate and kept my puppies in the kitchen area with peepee pads. Also, we are feeding them Nature’s Domain puppy food, which Sage likes better than Purina. They are eating two cups each a day. Feel free to give me a call anytime for support or with questions!

Crate training is going well! We brought Samson home on Friday. Hes going to bed around 10-11. Only cries for a couple minutes and then falls asleep. Up for potty break between 2-3Am. Then cries a little louder but still only a few minutes. Then up at 5:45 to potty and play for an hour. Then a long nap from 7-8:30/9ish

tired but overall its going well! I changed food to orijen brand but am mixing them to slowly switch. I have some bone broth or raw goat milk to add to it as well.

We took Oliver home Friday. He’s doing amazing! Crate trading is definitely hard at night. He was only in his crate for about 3 hours today and did amazing. Oliver definitely fit in well. He is not a handful yet Were enjoying every minute of him.
