Hello everyone I'm a proud new owner of a beautiful basset hound and am glad to have found this site. I've always had Great Dane's in the past so this is a new venture for me and my wife. Atticus is 10 weeks old now and he spent his first night with us last night. Needless to say it was a rough night as all the puppies in his litter were released yesterday . Atticus cried all night long. Poor buddy is still crying, I can't get him to stop. Seems the only thing that will do is holding him on my shoulder. We are kennel training him and made it through last night but hoping to get encouragement from others that this will stop with enough persistence and patience. I'm trying to limit his area to part of the downstairs and gradually let him expand. He spent the first 10 weeks in a barn so he literally pops a squat whenever and where-ever, picked up a puppy pad to help when I cant get him outside. Please tell me I'm heading down the right path with this...... O.k. now that I got that off my chest I feel better. Any encouragement or helpful ideas are welcome!
