Iím a first time dog owner with a 5 week old Chihuahua puppy named boozer. Iíve had him for about a week I've weaned him off of puppy formula and heís now eating moist food. About two days ago I started crate training him. I know he is still very young and has little control over his bladder but I figured it wouldnít hurt to start now. I live in a small apartment, so I thought a littler box would work best. My method so far has been to set him in the litter box 5 min after feeding him and then give him a treat and praise if he goes in the box ( he cant chew too well so he mostly licks the treat and holds it in his mouth). Iím not too worried about the litter training right now because heís so young, but keeping him in the crate has become very stressful. He hates it. Once heís in he cries and screams like thereís no tomorrow. I put a blanket in the crate because heís so small and gets cold, but because heís so young he soils in his crate. Am I doing anything wrong, and is there anything I can do to stop the crying?
