If there's a thread that already discusses this, please let me know. I searched but didn't find it. We're picking up our new rescue pup in a couple days. We have a male boxer I've had since he was 4 months old. He was crate trained but hasn't been in one since he was 2 years old. I have a baby gate (actually it's more like a Great Dane gate) that keeps Ory in the family room/kitchen (it's tiled). So I want to crate train the new pup. Should she be crated in a completely different part of the house so she doesn't see Ory having free roam? Or should she be crated in the same area so that they can see each other? I should also mention that she is just 3 months old. She's currently in a foster home with her littermate so they hang out in the crate together. So she may be a little lonely as the only pup in a crate, but I plan to give her items to keep her busy. I thought maybe being in the same room as Ory would help with the transition. Thanks for your advice in advance!!
