Their Pack Animals DAMMIT!

Here`s another great article:

Figured I would give you some advice that was given to me by a co-worker. We now have a 10 month old Newfoundland/Husky mix and are at the tail end of the puppy stage. All the advice we found in the beginning was crate training and how essential it was. The first week was hell and we attempted to get a routine with the crate and got very little sleep as he whined and howled while we tried to sleep in our bedroom down the hall. I was talking about the pains at work and not getting any sleep and one guy pipes up and said "their pack animals DAMMIT, they need to sleep with their pack, let that dog sleep on your floor".

That night we got a couple old blankets that we used and put them on the floor. He slept like a rock and when he got up he was let out to the bathroom and brought back in the room. He wanted to play and get up so we crated him at that point in the morning. After two nights of learning that it was time to go back to bed or he would move out to the crate he got the hang of it. We haven't had an issue with him sleeping since 11 weeks and he would occasionally test the waters at five months and try to wake us up to play in the morning but would be immediately crated. He is an angel dog when it comes to our sleep schedule thanks to that small piece of advice.

I guess I just see a lot of advice given here about the crate being the end all be all and want newer pup owners to know that this isn't always the case.

Also I recognize I used the wrong "their" instead of "they're"
