~ We Made It Home

Probably off to a bad start as he slept with us last night. Slept about 7 hours. No accidents, had breakfast this morning and a solid poop outside. Every time he drinks water we take him out and praise him when he does his business.  He is a little clingy but that was expected. He wants to be on a lap. Crate training starts today.

He will actively try to play with the other two boys with varying degrees of success. Our other weim ignores him still and the lab tolerates him till he gets underfoot then requests his space with a growl.  We Supervise him closely as the lab could easily break the little guy. He loves exploring the back yard and is showing more of his personality every hour. Thanks again.  

Breeder Comment

We are delighted to hear the news. It is a bit more tricky to incorporate a puppy into a home with two adult resident dogs–and many things are to be expected. One for sure–is the extra work to monitor interaction to ensure the pup’s safety.

More importantly, we have to guard our feelings about the things we see. The very intuitive Weimaraner picks up on your unspoken signals–your concern, any disappointment, or whatever. Sometimes a resident Weimar has their nose out of joint and tries to manipulate you into getting rid of the new interloper. The best approach is to keep things the same as before the pup arrived–and make sure the resident Weimaraner still believes they are in control of their universe. Lavishing the newest family member with too much attention and displacing other fur family members can drag out the process. Eventually, the dust will settle (feelings will adjust), and they will, at a minimum, tolerate the new arrival–more than likely, they will become inseparable.
