OK... I'm starting in on Volume I of Training with Mike Lardy. Puppy probably going to be born the end of September. So, I'm reading and taking notes and focusing on every word. First column of page 2, paragraph 2
" The first night or two at home, it's best to keep the pup right in bed with you."
I get it that you keep the pup very near by... In the past, I've put new puppies on a fluffy blanket and a short leash tied to the leg of the head of the bed about 3 feet from my face.
But in my bed? I don't think so.
(I didn't even take my own kids into bed with me. I hardly think I'll do it with a puppy. The kids turned out OK... BTW.)
