We brought him home on the 12th, he was born 09/10/2008. He's a Snoxie, part Dachshund, part Mini Schnauzer. He'll grow to about 10-12lbs, nice and small. His name is Truffles. Any tips on house breaking would be great. Currently we have him in the living room in a 4'x4' play pen and he sleeps in a small crate at night. We are trying to house break him but it's tough, he likes to go in his pen and not outside. We have some special drops that are supposed to aid in training but there not working too well. I realize he is very young (9 weeks). I took the door off the crate but I think from here on out I'll lock him in it at night so if he goes, it'll be right where he sleeps, hopefully this will start to help. Thanks for any suggestions.
