Default New Pet Owner

Hello--I'm new to this forum and new to pets. I'm babysitting my son's Maltese/Yorkie for a couple of month's while he is away on business. He is 3 years old and hasn't been trained/socialized well. His first night here was terrible because he barked all night which was understandable. Last night was better but he still pees outside his crate (even though he is in it). So I'm not sure if I need to bring him out earlier to pee in the morning? I let him out last night around 9:45 to pee. My hubby thinks I'm giving him too much water.

I also brought him out on a walk this morning and he isn't very good when he sees other dogs. He barks and wants to attack them. I thought he might be better with smaller dogs but when he got close to a Shih-Tzu/Bichon, he swiped at him. I'm going to bring him to doggy class on Sunday to help me with training him.

So, I'm really hoping you all can guide me through this new experience of mine. I'm retired so I can spend a lot of time working with him. After this, I will decide whether or not to add a new permanent addition to the family. I'm still torn between a Maltese and a Havanese, and maybe a Coton de Tulear.

Welcome to SM. What a good mom you are!! When your son comes home he'll have a socialized well trained dog! I have Maltese and Yorkies, but not mixed, but I love both the breeds. Wishing you all the luck in the world with training, and when you get your own , you'll be a pro. The doggy classes will be a good place to start.
Deborah and my Fluffs, Laurel, Violet , Hardy and Dewey!

Welcome aboard. You will have all sorts of new information to tell your son when he gets home. What a good grandmother you are to your grand doggy.
The only creatures that are evolved enough to convey pure love are dogs and infants.
