    ..... We have had a quick re-shuffle of the house. Luckily we have already bought all the stuff we need...
    The one thing we cant seem to find is puppy treats..... They all seem to be for puppy/dogs aged atleast 4 months

    Will he/she be on dry food?

    If so just use these as treats, you will avoid tummy upsets that way.

    I don't use treats I use bits of cheese or if they can't take that little bits of cooked chicken. I find they will do anything for some cheese.

    Make sure you feed what the breeder has been for a good few weeks.

    Dietry changes should be done over a couple of weeks, and once the puppy has settled.

    Bolt is home.... after the excitment the poor thing was knackered.He went into his crate.... no probs , he woke up had a bit of dry food ( bakers puppy ).
    We then took him outside to the garden.... he had 2 wee's , we praised him profusely and then we had a little run around..... he came in the house and climbed right back into the crate ( now known as his bed ) ...... I would call this a fantastic start

    Yeah he is isn't he...... BOLT had a good night on his first night here. He seems to have taken to his bed ( crate ) really well...... he already makes his own way to it when he fancies a nap. He cried once during the night...... We went against the rules of crate training( because he hadn't had a No2 ) and came downstairs and let him into the garden , but with no fussing . He did his business. Then he was crying this morning about 8.00am...... same again , he went ino the garden and within a minute he had relieved himself..... then within 3 minutes he decided to have a No 2..... thats the first since we got him..... and it was outside

    He has made a very good start..... fingers crossed for the future

    He's such a lovely puppy. He is making an excellent start with you. We pick our pug puppy up on the 18th July!:thumbup:

    Keep us informed of Bolt's progress.

    I got my chihuahua's on Bakers, they were on Science dry to start with but after 3 months they went off it completely and refused to eat, even though I was consitant and thought if you are hungry you will eat it. But no....they love Bakers, and I use the little different peices for TREATS and also little cubes of cheese, they love it.
    You got a good puppy there, going into the crate brilliantly too, keep it up your doing well. xxx
