Just remember consistency for potty training, just be ontop of him. 10 minutes after eating and drinking head outside and stay out until he goes. Using the same spot he has used before I find helps too so if he does his buisness maybe leave a pile there if you can. I found when I had a litter here they all would go in the same spot they would sniff around the area and figure thats where the others went and they would too. Then PRAISE, when he goes make the biggest deal out of it like he did the most amazing thing , they love when you are happy with them. I find this breed is really smart and they do catch on quick so if you stay on it , shouldnt be long before he has it down.
Thank you so much, between yesterday and today it's a like a 180 degree turn, the crying was so hard to hear and he is no longer doing it so i am really excited about that.

I would love to take him outside to potty train like you said in the same spot all the time, except he is so little right now he cant climb down or up the stairs, so i will just carry him until he is able to go by himself. Also it's pretty cold outside. But no worry's i will figure something out

Can you give me some suggestions on how i should feel him? I have been doing a lot of research but id love to hear how you guys did it with your puppy's.

This is what I'm doing at the moment:

7 am: Puppy food with water or milk.
1 pm: Milk
7 pm: puppy food with water or milk.

In between those hours i plan to either let him sleep or if he wants to run around i wanna take him outside and let him explore the backyard.

Cant wait until he is 8 weeks so i can start walking him.

Thanks a lot guys this is all so much help & great information.

when you say milk what kind of milk? Cows milk is no good so either goats milk or milk replacer would be the only thing I would use, although at this age kibble and water should be fine. If you have to soak it then do so in water. ANd I would feed 3 times a day .

Cow's milk can give your puppy digestive issues as dog's don't have the same ability to process it as we do.

I got my boy Kane at 4 1/2 weeks due to his mother starting to eat some of his littermates. At 5 weeks, it should be okay to wean him off milk (especially if you're doing cow's milk) and just have him eating kibble mixed with warm water. If you want, you can even go so far as to blend it a little to make it easier to eat since her teeth are so small. That seemed to help with Kane.

At 5 weeks, I was taking him out every 15-20 minutes to go to the bathroom. They really don't have the ability to hold it for much longer than that at that age. It's inevitable you'll get accidents in the beginning simply because of their small bladders; it doesn't take much to make them feel like they have to go, and then they'll just squat. I would keep a bottle of Nature's Miracle on hand and plenty of paper towels--Nature's Miracle cleans up EVERYTHING (poop, pee, blood, dirt, whatever), leaves no stain even on white carpet, and is also a deodorizer, which is important so your pup doesn't smell where she's had accidents before and go in the same spot thinking it's where she's supposed to go.

I would also set your alarm for every couple of hours during the night. That really helped to keep up with the house-/crate-training, so I would get up right as Kane was and wouldn't feel bad that I didn't wake up to his crying in time to take him outside before he HAD to go.

edit: Just saw your question about feeding. I was feeding him 4 times a day. When he got up to 8 weeks, I cut him down to 3 times.

Perfect, thanks a lot man! So kibble and warm water 3 - 4 times a day and he should be good.

Glad to hear it going better. How come your pup had to be separated so soon from the litter?

I agree with what everyone said. The only thing is to make sure you get up through the night to let him out. I would limit playtime outside until he learns first outside is for potty time. Every time mine ate I waited 5-10 minutes and took out. As they grew older it became routine to go out potty after every meal. You can also purchase "chuks" at a medical supply store to place in his crate. These are washable pads for elderly that can't hold their bladder in case of an accident. Place it on top of his bedding.This way you only have to wash them if there is an accident and not all the bedding. Place a blanket over the crate to limit drafts and to make it a little cave for him. He will learn this is his safe zone. You can also purchase a small sweater or coat to keep him warm while outside especially if his hair is thin. Play and wear him out during the day and he will sleep sounder. I only used kibble and warm water for food but I have never had a dog that young. Mine were always 8wks or older except when we bred dogs and they stayed with their mother until they were of age to leave home. I use Zero Odor (you get online). It works wonders for accidents on floors and carpet. please post a pic of your baby, we'd love to see him.

Ohh yea this is Night #3 I just put him to sleep.

I keep him on my body now, he sleeps we play & all that cute stuff i can trust him that he wont pee or poop on me. Soon as he wakes up from a nap i take him to the same spot to pee.

He poops in the same spot after every meal, everything so far is wonderful hes adapting to my family, and their amazed how well he is managing.

I am also amazed that he is not crying anymore and that hes being so loving.

I am making him a cage Monday when my dad goes back to work, and then I am officially going to have him sleep in my bedroom.



When he's a month old i will upload a video to show hes progress.

Cute pup! 5 weeks is too early to be away from Mom and litter mates, that's why he cries. I'm glad he is settling in. it can be a rough transition at that age as they really aren't developmentally ready for being alone so much. It's a shame 'breeders' are often so eager to get rid of pups that they end up 'needing' to get rid of them so young. Good thing he found you, as you will ned to teach him things he missed out on, like bite inhibition and various social skills. Good luck, he's a cutie!!

Sweet!
Make sure to start Parvo shots soon. Keep him away from where other dogs have been (for the most part), until the third or so shot.

If you can not afford a vet. Buy the shots yourself and have a friend or family member help you give them to your pup. Shots need to be kept cold until used.

Great looking pup. This breed is so smart. Your in for some entertainment.

He is old enough for dewormer. They tend to have worms and need to be on a deworming schedule. If you have not made a check up apt., go by a vets office and buy some (its forgiving if you use a little to much - its also cheap - do not buy to much).
