Hi guys, I'm new to this forum but would like some reassurance if possible. Me and my partner bought our 9 week old Chihuahua 'Rex' last week and he's been nothing but fun! I work full time but my partner works from home so there's always someone here to keep an eye. I have attached a photo of his current set up. He has his crate, which he has his bed food water and toys in. His crate is enclosed in his pen which has puppy pads in which he has no trouble using. My question is: how much time should we spend with him out of his pen? ATM it's about 15-20 mins per hour where possible longer. My other concerne also is where should we put his puppy pads when not in the pen? Cause of his size he sometimes goes to the toilet before he can get to his pads. I have done lots of research but I find that there is a lot of conflicting information out there! Any advice would be fantastic!
