6 month old rescue advice for house training

Hey everyone I'm new to the forum. I just adopted a 6 month old pitbull mix from my local shelter.

I have a few questions Regarding crate training. She has been doing great overnight. She would whine for about a minute then go to bed. I take her out right when I wake up when I go to work and she goes. I then praise her. My main question is if it is ok if I let her sleep on a bed I have in my living room during the day? Will this negatively effect my training ? I want to housebreak her but after that let her sleep in the living room.

It seems like she has no problem going into the crate, only whines for a little then lays down. I'm just trying to make sure I am house training her correctly. I am use the bell method that is attached to my door.


Thanks

Joe

I would keep crating her until she's both house trained and out of the chewing everything puppy phase, for her own safety.

Welcome to the forum jschuerger and way to go on the adoption of your new girl.

I agree with the good advise from BCdogs, the crate is a safety zone for the dog. Remember that dogs are originally denning animals and the crate may be the place the dog chooses to sleep. Make the crate a special place and never use it for punishment. Let the pup know that it is it's haven when it wants to sleep or just get away from everything.

We would love to see some pics of your girl.

Thank you both for your advice. I have her on a good routine schedule to go outside after she eats/plays and she sat in front of the door to go tonight! I'm trying to use the bell method but I know it takes time. One two accidents in the house. Only pee. Def some good progress.

She loves to sleep on the bed in the living room. The good news is that she only whined for literally a minute last night in her crate then went to bed. She will be alone for 4 hours tomorrow. Hopefully she does good.

Here's a pic of her. She's six months old. She was taken away from someone that was abiding her when she was between 1-3 months. She's already an awesome dog that shows no signs of aggression
