Q. How do we handle our pup in the ExPen when we aren't training and she is crying and jumping to get out? Also, we have to go back to work soon, what's your recommendation on how to leave her?
Hello, watched your video with the pen training/leash traing and using yes instead of clicker and lots off value rewards... Our girl is almost 8 weeks and it is actually going amazing so thank you,!

Question, the pen is a change for her and she is being great but what do we do at the times when we are not training and she is crying and jumping to get out. We are either making dinner, watching tv or desk work but remain where she can see us.

Also we have not left her alone but soon will have to go back to work and she might be alone up to 4 hours, what's your recommendation on how to leave her?

Thank you, Denise

A. I put pups in a crate when I can’t keep my eyes on them in the ExPen.

Here’s a short video on pups and ex pens too.

I hope this helps.

Every new puppy owner has the same image of what they want their new dog to be like as an adult. First and foremost, everyone wants a great relationship with their dog but beyond that, those who plan on keeping their dog in their home want a calm, well-mannered, obedient house dog that minds and respects their family and friends. Those who plan on keeping their dog outside want a calm well mannered dog that is respectful to the family and is quiet in the yard or kennel. They only want their dog to bark at strangers that come near the home. New dog owners think the road to success only involves obedience training and house training new puppies. Well that is the old wives tale that is been spread for 100 years and nothing could be further from the truth.
