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!

Thanks so much Hallie. Also, could you guys clarify when I should start housebreaking, crate training, and socializing my Beagle?

Once again, many thanks.
Now is the perfect time to start. :)
1) Yeah, you should be taking him out in the middle of the night to potty. He can't hold his bladder through the night yet. What time did he start crying? I would set your alarm for half an hour before he starts crying and then wake him up to take him out. Keep him on a leash while you're outside.

2) When exactly is he whimpering? It's normal for puppies to whine at night or in their crates for the first few weeks.
