Routine is probably the only way to successfully manage 4 dogs in a home when 2 of them are puppies that I don’t want running loose either with each other or the older dogs. I am going to give an outline of the daily routine that is most common here with Venom.
I place at this age (8 – 16 weeks) a heavy focus on:
Teaching the pup that the Crate and the Pen are good places to relax.
Being on your own is ok.
Loose Leash Walking
Basic Training and bonding
This is a simple day where everything goes to plan, they do vary though but my plan is to have the dog be prepared for change.
