Will that work for him?

I think that's a perfect setup for him. Just be very selective about the types of toys you leave with him. Make sure it's not a choke hazard. Does he have a soft blanket he can snuggle under 😊🐶. I never did this. But my boss setup a puppy can to watch her new puppy while she was away at work. That's something you could do if you're super worried. But I think he will be fine. How's he doing at the moment?

I'd put the crate IN the pen at night. Leave the door open so he can go out and piddle. Otherwise get ready to get up 3-4x a night for a month or so! I use washable pee pads for people that fit right into the iris pens.

He is so happy. All snuggled with me on the couch. I have stairs for the couch and he learned how to use them so fast. I'm not going to let him on the couch unsupervised for w while yet, just in case he falls. His crate has a pillow on the bottom and a new fleece blanket and his pen has a bed and fleece too. His toys are all big enough that he should not choke. He isn't too interested in them right now. He is pretty clueless about potty training, but that's to be expected. He goes so fast I haven't been able to catch him in the act and move him to the pad much yet. I am watching more closely now. All in all he is doing wonderful. He acts like he has always lived here, lol.

Good point. I may need to purchase a larger pen. This is what I have now.

When he is crated at night, keep a potty pad on one side and his bed on the other. It could be quite tedious moving a crate in and out of an iris pin every single day. Unless it's a large pin lol. I think his sleep space and hang out space when you are away should be separate until he is older and trustworthy of having free roam with his big sister.

Omg I love this update on him. I'm so happy he's showing signs of comfort in his new home already. And I totally sympathize with you on how fast they are to go potty. They are quick like lightening lol. Just do your best to watch all of the signs. And praise praise praise when he goes in the desired areas. Don't feel like you have to be perfect so soon. Before you know he will have potty time down😊🐶.

Bently is adorable. Good luck with assimilating him into the family. He'll do great!
