We're getting a 10 week old puppy (show cocker spaniel) soon and wondering the best way to get him settled. The plan is that he'll be allowed in all the rooms downstairs but will mainly be in living room with us (with a bed and toys) until bed time then he'll be in a crate within a pen in dining room for nights*. He will also be in the pen when we have to leave him for work. We're not sure if this will be too confusing? The dining room isn't big enough for us to use very much but we will play/train with him there sometimes so he's used to it. *To start with he'll be in crate in bedroom at nights.
