Default First Night Home

Last night we brought our Talos home. He was shaking and panting most of the ride home poor baby. We got him home and let him explore the yard a bit. He did his business and hopped around the yard. Then we took him inside and he whined a lot and mostly laid around. I know this transition is very tough for babies. He did take a few bites of food and has eaten the treats we've given to reward him for going potty but that's all and has not had any water yet. That worries me a little.

Then I put him in his crate and he had a fit. But I followed advise and didn't acknowledge his cries and laid on the couch. (I planned on sleeping downstairs so I can take him out to potty if need be) 20 minutes later he settled down and we both feel asleep. I woke up at 4 and went to the restroom and he didn't make a peep. So I went back to sleep. At 6 I got up to get ready for work. Took him out of the crate and he did 1/2 of his business and wanted to go back in. The grass was wet and chilly. 5 minutes later he scratched and whined at the back door so I took him back out and he pooped. Yay! another treat. lol

He cries if no one is in the room but I just let him cry. My biggest worry is that he's not really eating or drinking.

So many changes in your pups life, give him some time he will eat. I know it's hard having a new baby and worrying over their every move. But take a big breath and relax lol.

Thank you! You were 100% correct. He did great yesterday. Ate and drank and did all his business outside. No accidents! He also started playing and exploring his toys. He's so wonderfully sweet. I'm an exhausted mommy this morning though. Night two was a little rough on both Talos and myself.

Congratulations on the new pup. Sounds like you are doing it right . Its important they learn to be alone in their crate and see you move about. He probably will end up needing to go out more often. We too slept nearby the crate (ours is in kitchen) so that we could just scoop him up and take him out, we really didn't wait for him to whine. if in middle of night we would just pick him up take him out and when he potted reward and back in crate. Little speaking. In morning same out, eat, play out craate. Anode course in between these times he would be on out lap on the couch. But we kept a pretty good routine. I can't wait to see pictures of your pup

Thanks! Night one was the easiest (go figure). Night two was ROUGH and this boxer mom was exhausted and falling asleep at her desk at work. I'm lucky I didn't get fired. I think I woke myself up snoring at one point.

You don't have children do you? Lmao

A puppy is easy. Expect a few weeks of broken sleep but hey.... at least you will still be getting some. Then once the crating pattern has been establishe, he will be easy peasy.

A puppy can only hold their bladder for approx. 1 hr for every month they are old. So a 2 month old puppy.... 2 hrs max.

Actually I have 2 kids. One just turned 21 and the other is 14 so it's been a while since I had a baby. My daughter slept her first night home from the hospital from 11pm to 7am. (no joke) My son screamed from 12am to 5am unless I rocked him in a chair. It's just been a while since I've gone through this. lol
