Do you recommend crate training?


Yes we do. No puppy should be given the run of the house until he is completely trustworthy with his potty habits. Some puppies may take a few weeks while others a little longer. It all just depends on your ability to follow through with guiding your new companion and his own personality. Giving him his own crate or playpen to stay in comfortably when you cannot provide 100% of your attention only on him is the best way to prevent accidents from happening.
