Ollie came to us at 16 weeks old so in some ways it was good for us but also bad in some ways for him
He has done well so far but getting him to socialise and sleep on his own is proving a little difficult.
Sleeping........ We have him downstairs overnight on his own in the dining room. After the first 6 days he started to get used to it and his whining only lasted 10-20 mins however for the past 4 days he has stayed with me at my parents and slept in the bedroom with me in his own bed so now coming back home and being shut downstairs has taken him pretty much back to square one bless him. Anyone know of anything that could help us with this having your own experience?
Behaviour....... Ollie is an absolute diamond around people he knows however when he meets new people he gets very nervous, hides away but has 'gone' for 3 people before he has got used to them and became friends. This obviously worries me and it is through no fault of his own as i feel that he may not have been socialised enough with the breeder before he came to us.
I am on the list for puppy classes but they don't start until April so i am trying to socialise him enough when he comes out with me.
He is just a very nervous boy with new people
