You can see in the next photos, the baby gates are up again!! I thought they were stored away for good!! Poor Maya doesn't understand why she's blocked from the kitchen, unless it's play time for the two of them.
This is a highly supervised time while they are going through the 'get-acquainted' stage. Those razor-sharp puppy teeth could provoke an unwanted but necessary nip from Maya, just to let her know that her behavior is unacceptable. There is alot of sleep time in the crate for Nikki since she is still a puppy (baby) as well as play time outdoors, chasing her ball and frisbee. Crate training is very important for puppies. It's a safe and secure place for them.
If anyone has any advise or tips that you care to share on puppies or pitty's, please feel free to comment. I hope to update weekly or even more, depending on how much sleep I get, hehe.
