Just got my Beagle

Hey! Just brought home a 11 week old Beagle Pup, and I need some tips as it is his first day in our house.

First off, should I put him in his cage at all on his first day? Or is it better for him to get used to his surroundings, and wander until its time to sleep? Any other tips would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks so much!

I just got my puppy yesterday and did not sleep a wink last night due to her crying/calling for her pack (she is a husky so you should have it easier).
Anyway, today, everytime she fell asleep- whether she was on my lap or she crashed on the floor somewhere, I let her sleep 15-20 minutes and then put her in the crate with the door open. And she is sleeping fine with no crying :)
So, you may want to try that while you can supervise. So far it is working very well for me! She no longer is terrified of her crate!
