Default Toy poodle training

We just got Calbee yesturday and Emily and I are very excited.

Calbee is a 2 1/2 month Toy Poodle.

Calbee sleeps in the crate and we're starting off with a peepad inside. He know how to use a peepad in the crate but not outside yet. Any idea of training him to use the peepad in the other room?

When can we start to train him? We are trying to teach sit and come but he just gets excited. What treats do you recommmend? Any help would be awesome.

You're not supposed to put the pee pad in the crate. That's teaching the dog to soil where it sleeps and possibly eats and goes against the dog's instincts to keep its den clean. It's the wrong way to crate train... I wonder who is spreading this method.

If you're determined to use pee pads, you want to put it outside of the crate, but really if you're crate training the puppy, the pads shouldn't even be necessary. The puppy should hold it while in the crate and be taken outside to potty every time it's taken out of the crate, right after every meal, right after every play session, right after every nap, and right before it's put back in the crate again.

As far as training, you can start right away. If the puppy gets excited around treats, you'll first have to teach him to be calm and watch you. This is easy. Take out a treat and get his attention. He's small so I'd do this while sitting on the floor. Go to give him the treat. If he gets excited and spazzes out, yank the treat back up (I ball it in my fist as well), hold it still, and ignore him. He should look sortof confused and eventually sit down and watch your hand for that treat. Try and give it to him again, and if he spazzes out, repeat. I did this with my corgi pup when I first brought him home. >^_^<

Once he learns to concentrate and watch you, then you can start in on sit, down, etc.

He is kind of small and cannot cross the low mesh of the crate. He is only 15 CM tall. I will try to make it so he can walk out when he needs to do his business. I was told not to bring him outside yet. Just use peepad indoors. I will buy some treats today. Thanks allot.

He's not going to hurt in you own garden provided he doesn't come in contact with other dogs.

Newspapers work fine if you want them to pee inside. I have a baby (8weeks) Shihtzu and I have had her 2 weeks. She is tiny too but I was determined to train her to potty outside. So after 2 weeks of diligent training she goes potty outside. I still crate her whenever I cannot watch her for preventitive purposes and she is doing good. I know at such a young age they cannot hold it long so I take her out alot but I know as she gets older she will be able to hold it longer.
