I moved the pups out of my bedroom and into the neighboring mud room about a week ago and have really grown to like the new set up. These pups are smart and are basically training themselves. To their new habitat I've added a potty area with fluffy shavings and a separate area with a sling bed. A water station sits alongside the bed. Mealtime is a free for all as I simply open the gate and let them race out of their habitat to the food bowl. Their appetites have increased dramatically over the course of the past week and they're eating kibble like there's no tomorrow. Finally I'm seeing the girls fill out a little. They're all super responsive and watch me like little hawks. They also have a pretty set routine they've grown accustomed to. I wake them all up and give them a chance to do their business while I tend to the adults. Once I've got my crew settled in with breakfast the pups are ready to see that gate open and the food bowl appear. They generally greet my return with vocals. And they dig in scattering food to and fro. Next stop the water bowl and within about 45 minutes they find their way back to their enclosure where I find them sleeping happily in a pile on their sling bed. I quietly close the gate and they enjoy a nap while I return the area to it's pre meal state over my morning coffee. Before lunch I send them out the back door to the big dog run for a couple hours of exercise. They dine and drink before retiring once again to the comfort of their bed. They've been getting plenty of attention not only from me but from my cousin as well. She's been a great help while here and has enjoyed spending time with them. A win win situation all the way around.
