Awww! She's precious.

Yes, I agree with the others. Time will tell as far as size and shedding.

Before I got my baby (he is an unregistered purebred Miniature Schnauzer) I adopted a Schnauzer mix. I had no idea what she was crossed with, but they suggested Cairn terrier. They told me that she didn't shed. She most certainly did. A LOT. That was the least of my problems, but that is what pertains to this topic, LOL.

My baby, Pepper, is just about fully grown (8 months) and he is comparable to both of his parents, but his parents are the same breed.

Genetic traits are very interesting. Can't wait to see how she turns out!

Coffeelady,

I responded to your other post, too.

I understand you wanting it ASAP, but I have learned with my puppy that almost nothing happens that way, LOL. You are in the company of some VERY knowledgeable animal lovers. I have no doubt that they will give you mounds of great advice. But it will probably take some time, too. Don't lose hope!

As far as my own experience, I crated Pepper until he was fully potty trained. Now he only goes in his crate when he wants to, or when I need to keep him away from something, like the evil vacuum monster He has always slept with me. I put him in my bed with me from the first day that I brought him home. Other than that, if I was not able to pay VERY close attention to him (i.e. able to keep him from pottying on the floor or getting into something dangerous) he was in his crate. When I left for work, I put him in his crate. I came home on lunch and gave him a potty break, fed and played with him, and back in the crate he went when I had to leave. When I got home, another potty break and then he was typically not crated again until the next morning, unless I had to leave the house for something. I tried not to crate him too much, but I did not let him have free access to the house without my supervision until recently. It worked for me. Pepper is VERY good when left home alone, and he has all but stopped whining when I leave the house.

There are stickies on potty training and crate training. Nothing in puppy world happens "asap". If you're looking for instant gratification from a puppy you will be sorely disappointed. Puppies are cute so that we don't leave them on the side of the road. They are zoomy, peeing, pooing, barking, whining, monsters who chew things and never let you sleep. They are infants and need lots of sleep and lots of exercise. ASAP is never.

I'm not really familiar with either breed of your mix, but either way, a pup is going to take TONS of love, patience and training. None of this is going to come easy or quick. Potty training and crate training (as well as bite inhibition) often take MONTHS and are often the source of severe stress and puppy blues here. It is infuriating to new owners since they expect their adorable little puppy to play with them when they want and be well behaved like the dog on the K9 advantix commercial. WRONG. Puppies need socializing, training, EXERCISE, and all of this is DAILY.

To more specifically answer your question-crate your pup when she is calm and give her a treat that will last her a while. Close the door. ONLY let her out when she's calm. Letting her out when she screams not only gives her what she wants (wrong) it teaches her nothing (actually, it teaches her that mom will let me out when I cry, so I should cry A LOT to get out of here!) Therefore crying=I get out of here, I'll cry a lot. IGNORE HER UNTIL THE END. It sucks. You have to do it. It's part of puppyhood but it's better for both of you. Same reason as absolutely no freedom during potty training (i basically kept Sam on my lap or in the crate when he was little) will pan out later. It's not cruel. Keeping a toddler in a playpen isn't mean. It keeps them out of trouble. It keeps them from ripping their diaper off and chewing on the extension cord or getting into mom's medicine cabinet. Puppies and babies can get into the same kinds of trouble yet people have a much more moral problem with crating a pup. It's their playpen. Get them used to it early. It's for their own SAFETY.
