Last year I read a great article on Puppy X Pen Etiquette.
http://www.ukcdogs.com/WebSite.nsf/WebPages/BrdXPen

Puppies can be messy once Mom is no longer cleaning up after them, especially in the house! 6 or 7wk old puppies aren't born house trained! Not even Blue Lacy Dogs! :-o

Enjoy

:-? That is not what I hear. I heard a breeder one time say their puppies needed no training :)) I am sorry I just couldn't help myself. What a concept, puppies needing training!

Kevin, let's just say that despite her breeder's claims, Hook 'Em most definitely needed lots of potty training 8-|

My biggest reason for not getting a second dog is the housebreaking. I lived in a place with carpet when I got Sadie, and now that I'm back in a place with carpeting, I don't think I want to go through all that scrubbing again. I wonder if an X-pen pup would make it more manageable.

Julie,

Having a backyard with a kennel set up helps big time in housebreaking. I used to have a pit bull named Annie who housebroke her own pups..seriously! I would sell the pups at 8 weeks and whomever was still home after 8 weeks was taught by Annie to go outside and if the pup went in the house, she would charge at the terrified pup and grab it and run outside, put down the pup and glare at it til he/she did the business and she would act ALL excited and the pups learned fast. At 10 weeks old, I had maybe 4 or 5 puppies housebroke thanks to mom. I miss that dog. I learned how to housebreak pups from her, LOL!

i must have missed this post. Ted i to had a dog, my red female heeler that would train her pups to go outside. I built a dog house with a hall way and a doggie door and those pups learned to go outside to do their business, still have the puppy pen and the house guess i will have to try it on lacy pups and see if they too will catch on quick. I never told people who bought my pups they were house trained but i did have a few of them tell me they were... :))

these are the pictures from my puppy pen. the dog house has a doggie door, hall way and the living area, and the lid opens up for access. it worked great for raising my heeler pups. Sage jumped out when he was 4 months...lol I now have 6 foot covered kennels that i had to build for him... :-o
