We just got a new Catahoula puppy and every opinion is different. How to crate train, how to house break, IF you should crate train etc. it’s so overwhelming. Breeder has been doing this for 30+ years and written 5 books on Catahoulas. Said to leave the crate in the room furthest away from your bedroom. I don’t understand how you’re supposed to hear them to let them out though? He’s only 2 months old, so he can’t hold it for more than 2 hours. I guess set an alarm? I’d rather take him out when he needs to and wakes up, not go by a clock. Maybe a baby monitor is in order. Lol. Hubby says use a puppy pad, but that seems counterintuitive and teaches him to go inside. And then like a PP said, what if he starts peeing on towels and rugs and shirts or whatever else is lying around? We’ve argued about methods more times than I can count, but I take care of him mostly since I’m a Stay-At-Home Mom so I’m just doing it my way. Lol!!!
