I will let him in the house,but his time in will be limited.what if he whines when he comes home? let him whine? I'm not going to put him in a crate.I want him to feel free at home.I have a huge back yard with a 8 foot tall fence.Just want him to be happy.He will not be a working dog.This rott will be on easy street.I have a very soft spot for pets.
My sons cat got in some poppurie (sp) and the vet said he was going to need alot of work.long story short,the cat almost died and cost me 200 dollars.money well spent.The cat Johnny is very healthy and only goes out to go to the bathroom.hes kinda my cat now LOL.I might add that was 2 years ago.some people say I was stupid for paying 200 dollars to keep him from dying.I would do it all over again if I had to.
Puppys should not have the run of any where.Dogs should be inside animals.Put a crate next to your bed(this will be the puppys den)at night the puppy will feel safer next to you.When you leave the house put the puppy back in his den.Puppys chew and can easly get killed if left un attended.To leave them loose and un attended is poor judgement.
Again dogs are pack animals and need to be with the pack not shut outside.
I gotta go with donna on this one she is right like usual. You can't just let a puppy run free all the time and with this particular breed they are even more sensitive about being with their people than most other's he will not be happy if he is left outside most of the time and alone. just crate him and all will be better.
when we got Hercules we put him in his crate when we were not home at all times till he was a year than we would leave him for short periods of time until we felt he was secure enough. Puppies can get into anything and everything. I would never leave him outside all the time 8ft fence or not people can still throw stuff over that could be poisioned or the dog could dig his way under the fence.
All of my dogs are crated when I leave the house,no matter what age.At night they sleep on the bed with me.
If they are crated when you are out of the house the house will look the same when you return and your dog will still be alive.I know of dogs that have chewed on power cords and died.I will not let that happen to one of my dogs.
I have to agree with Donna, too. Dallas was never crate trained, but was kennel trained. So when I leave she kennels up. I would not trust her in the house alone without me. She love to try to play with my cats, and has to be calmed at times. I wish Dallas had been crate trained. The next one will be, I would like to know they are in the house lock up, instead of outside.
Did you ever try putting a crate in her kennel?Start out with the bottom part,put her food in it.When she is use to the bottom add the top,feed her in it,put a blanket in it after a while you should be able to add the door and then bring it and her inside.It will take a while ,but it should work.
I don't crate my rottie anymore but all he does when were not home is sleep, he's not a chewer and never has been. I feel very safe with my dog at home. He is a wonderful dog, I've had others that always had to be crated when we left but hercules is very good.
