We're about to adopt one of the foster pups we've had for 5 weeks. They're just past 9 weeks old. At night, they stay in a large pen with pee pads. We'll be crate training our dog, but the dilemma is what to do during the first nights. Just about every article or forum advice says to keep the puppy in a crate by our bed at night. This makes NO sense to me for a dog who is just starting to be crate trained. Our thoughts are to still put him in the pen (not the crate) at bedtime, but I'll sleep next to pen (it's way to big to put our bedroom), and I'll walk him during the night and gradually get him to use the crate at bedtime through the crate training process. Is this a reasonable solution?
