he's too cute, like msvette said...thank you thank you for adopting. if i were you, i would put him in the crate when you guys sleep (atleast until potty training is done.) i dont know how new to dog ownership you are, but you want to make sure he doesnt have too much room in his crate. It should be big enough for him to walk in, turn around, and lay down. If the crate is any bigger, than he will just poop or pee in the corner (dogs are clean animals, and wont soil their own sleeping space.)

As someone who now has 2 80-pound dogs who like to sleep with me and my husband because we brought them home and were 'just going to let them sleep with us a few days', I vote for putting him in the crate to sleep. Trust me, it's really cute to snuggle with the little puppy, but they are BED HOGS when they grow up roflmao

Welcome to the forum! Your puppy is adorable, what a cute face. Can't wait to see more pictures as he grows up :)

I agree with the "having to be strong" with the crate training. What we did with all our dogs is put the crate in a room far away so we wouldnt hear all the crying and barking because if they cry/bark and then you go let them out they will associate with "if i make noise i get to come out" which isnt what you want them to learn. All of mine now LOVE their crates. When we say "lets go to bed" they all run upstairs and run into their crates and wait for us to shut the door roflmao now you have to find a method that works for you and your pet but that has worked with all the dogs I have owned :) your baby is adorable and I cant wait to see more pictures!

Beautiful puppy! Having crate trained two dogs it is the best method. The crying will eventually end. Our older dog cried more for the first few days. We had the next to your bed so they could still feel our presence or put one of your T-Shirts in the crate so they have your scent if it can't be next to your bed. It is rough and you just want to pick them up, but you have to be strong and let him work it out. Eventually he will go in the crate willingly because it will become a place of comfort and peace. Good Luck!!
