I'll be leaving for a few hours this evening. Should I leave Harley (8 wks) in the bathroom with puppy pads and a bed or just leave him in his crate? Last night I left him in the bathroom but i'd like to crate train him esp at night. Dolly is housebroken so I leave her out except at night, that's when she'll go in her crate.

Any help is appreciated! :)

i wouldnt leave him in his crate any longer than an hour or two because pups that young cant hold their potty for very long. I would leave him in the bathroom with potty pads if you are gone longer than two hours...

I always used to put my three in their own crates if we had to go out, ours were biggish crates though with space for a bed, a pee pad and food and water.

umm.. well if you are comfortable leaving him in the bathroom then go ahead, as long as you make sure there is no way for him to get into anything, toilet shower, etc. how big is his crate?
if you can fit food water a bed and a pee pee pad in there then he should be ok.. it is best to crate train young so they learn..

If the crate will fit in the bathroom, I'd put it in there with the door open and his bed inside, maybe with the food in there. Put the potty pads outside the crate. Two birds, one stone.
