I'm picking up a dachshund puppy tomorrow and am beyond excited! Can anyone offer tips for training him to be comfortable when left for short periods in a crate unattended? Also, does anyone have any advice for how to keep puppies safe/happy when sleeping at night during their first week or so in their new home? Particularly in terms of... Which room should they sleep in? Should they be in a puppy pen or can they roam freely around the room? How many times should they be taken outside to go to the toilet during the night? For how long should they be left if whining before going to comfort/reassure them? For how long do 8-10 week old puppies tend to sleep/nap during the day?
