Not syaing this is what u should do but its what i had to do. They are capable of a lot at a young age.
    2X for my thoughts. Puppies can sound like someone is killing them and they are good at it. Only open the crate when they are not barking. Good luck you have a yeller on your hands.

    Well how about a little update. She is growing like a weed and is really "active" haha. She is pretty well house broken and knows sit, come, and we are working on others. One problem is that apparently she is a terror with my fiancÚ. She bites her clothes chews on cables and eats everything. For me all I have to say is leave it or no bite and most times she listens to me. However, with my fiancÚ if she bites her and she does the lip pinch she just comes back harder for more. You think she is not pinching hard enough? Does she not respect her? When she gets really crazy with me I hold her down and lay over the top of her (not putting any weight on her not trying to crush her) until she calms down. You guys have any ideas? The good thing is she is doing real well with retrieves and drop it.

    The puppy is finding out the pecking order of the house. YES she thinks your fiance is the timid one. Tell your fiance to be more assertive or the pup will never respect her.

    We finally decided on Lucy Louisa or Lucy Lu for short or Lucy for even shorter haha. I call her Lucy or Lucy Lu. Lucy is my fiance's grandmothers name so she couldnt turn it down ha. Its fun because now she is 9 weeks old and she picks up things so much faster than just a week ago. She fetches brings it right beck to me and drops it on command. One thing she still doesnt like is stairs. she can go up stairs although sometimes she sits at the bottom and whines until she gets the courage to go up. At home we have 3 steps down to the back door landing. The steps are hardwood so they are a little slippery. She will go up the stairs but she will not go down so we have to work on that. I dont want to force her to go down because she goes to the back door to go outside and I dont want to discourage that.

    Beautiful dog! Like the name We have steps in our house and it took a while for my pup to get used to them too. She would go up but not down for a very long time. once she figured it out she was like a kid - 'playing on the steps'! Now she sits at the top with her feet hanging over the edge like it is a 'perch'
