our pup is 9 weeks old .... we got her on Wednesday and so far all not too bad. I need to start leaving her though ... she goes into her crate perfectly, it's in the Utility room with water etc so she's fine there. No howling at night and sleeps right through the night. However, trying leaving her 10 mins or so whilst I'm in the house and she whimpers quite a bit. I don't make a fuss when I go in so she is begining to get used to it. How long will it be before I can leave her longer ... how soon does everyone else start leaving them? This is all quite new to me!! We have a lunch tomorrow, close by ... do I chance leaving her an hour after she's been fed/toileted. Would love some feedback.
