Hello I am new here. I will probably have a lot of questions along the way so I hope that is ok. Our new puppy comes to live with us on March 31. I am so excited and have been reading a lot of information on Shih Tzu. I am also a little nervous because I am not sure what to do with him as far as where he should sleep at night….do I just put him in a crate and get up with him every two hours? I say this because I saw a lot of videos where you don’t just put the puppy in the crate. You should start the crate slowly using treats ect before you actually close the door. I have had 3 mastiffs (we just lost our Bullmastiff) and a couple small dogs before but have never had one this young (he will be 8 weeks old when I get him) and it’s been a long time since I’ve had a small dog. I have always just started them out in the crate. Not going to them ect when they whine. But I want to make sure since he is so small and will only be 8 weeks that I do it right. Thanks for your help! I want to make sure I do everything right.
