A crate is better than a bed in that any puppy who can get out of their bed to pee, will do so. Which makes housebreaking much, much harder. You're better off if he has to wake up and wake you up to be taken out. Otherwise, it probably doesn't matter much.Hello, Ive just brought home a 9 weeks old Springer Spaniel. He has his little bed in the utility room. In his basket i have put a hot water bottle a kong and a teddy from his breeder. I also just put a radio in there to see if it calms him down...so far only a couple of whines!!
Is there anything else that would make him settle a bit better when going to bed and being left alone? Would a create be better then just a bed?
Be careful with the radio and hot water bottle. Batteries (or cords) and rubber and chewy puppies are not a great mix.
