First consider what is right for your puppy. Make sure the cage is the right size and introduce the puppy to the cage for short periods of time. Generally, it is not good to leave an animal in the cage more than six to eight hours at a time on a regular basis. Puppies have small bladders and should not be left alone in a cage for more than 2 hours at a time. Get a good friend or neighbor to come over and let your puppy out. Be sure the cage is a larger one so that the pup can sleep on a blanket at one end with a dish of water and at the other end some paper to piddle or go poo on. Dogs do not like to go potty near their food or sleeping quarters. Get someone to come in and let your pup go potty and have some exercise.

How do you stop a puppy spoiling on the carpet?

Obtain a cage with your new puppy the cage will help make the puppy feel secure, will make a home there and will therefore not spoil. Feed puppy and then put back in cage after 30 mins take puppy out to back garden where it may spoil as it spoils say the words 'busy busy' return puppy to cage with treat. repeat this every day (puppy can obviously come out of cage at other times but be careful not to overtire) The puppy will adopt the habit that every time you take it to the garden and say 'busy busy' it will spoil and therefore never be undisciplined enough to spoil in the house or where it shouldn't. Useful if taking dog on a train, bus etc as you can be confident it won't want to go if you have already 'walked' it in the garden.

What sort of cage is it best to keep a westie in?

I kept my westie in a puppy pen whilst it needed it but they dont actually need to stay in a cage. If you are putting it in a cage for transportation you should make sure that your cage is not too big so your dog will not slide around, also it will discourage it from soiling the cage as it doesnt like to sleep next to its soil. But the dog should be able to sit down in it without straining its head and neck
