New puppy questions - separation anxiety, sleeping etc.
We are bringing home a Coton puppy very soon. I have a few questions for all you seasoned Coton owners.
I work from home part time so I will be with the new puppy a lot. I would like to know:
-how do I make sure the dog loves my husband who will only be with him at nights and on weekends? I have a friend whose new puppy won't go to her hubby and barks at him. (I also have two kids but they will be home a lot more and so I hope this won't be an issue with them)
-because i will be home so much how do I ensure that the dog will be OK when I do go out (to the gym, grocery or to the movies)? I am worried that because I am around SO much he won't learn how to be alone and will be very sad every time I leave him. Should I separate him from me occasionally when I am home so he learns to be comfortable in his own space?
-I would prefer to have him sleep downstairs in the house rather than in my room. I am a super light sleeper and I know I will wake every time he moves. Does anyone have their coton sleep outside the bedroom? How do I make this a successful and happy experience for him?
Thanks in advance for your help!
