Hi, I just wanted to introduce this little fella who we brought home 10 days ago a little earlier than expected. He's a Blue Whippet and his name is Blu and hes currently 10 weeks old. Well.. my feet have not touched the ground since his arrival lol its been 15 years since we've had a pup in the house but he's a beaut and what a bond we have with him already. His confidence is growing everyday and with that his little personality is shining through I just know he is going to be an amazing dog. He is already sitting nicely for treats and leaves things when you say no. There is a couple of things that we are still working on though which I know will take time but if anyone has any advise I would be really grateful. So..when we brought him home there was a storm and he was very weary of going outside and just kept running back inside which is understandable so the pee pads came out and he's been using them , I managed to coax him out and he is weeing outside now but prefers to do it indoors on the pads , so my question is how do I transition from the pads to getting him to just go outside all the time? Also he sleeps until around 3 in the morning then starts to whine so we let him out for a wee then he goes back in his crate he will go off again after about 10 minutes but then wakes about 5 so we let him out again for wee but then he'll yelp and whine and carry on until I get up with him at 6.30, Ive tried leaving the radio on , the heating on low in case he's cold, he's got a soft toy and blankets to cuddle up to , I put a pillow case in his crate with my scent, he has a really comfy bed,I put a blanket over the top of the crate so there's no draught. Not sure what else to try or is it just a case of time as I appreciate its still early days.
