I am new to the forum and have a question about raising two doodles at the same time. George and Gracie are 5 months old and doing great with crate training. But it's really chaotic getting them accustomed to being out in the house. One will dash behind the sofa and chew a lamp cord while the other is chasing the cat. We have them out in the house as much as possible, but they are generally tethered to a table where we are working or tied to our belt loops. Both my husband and I are home most of the time and we can sort of divide and conquer. But it's almost like they are so smart they know they can literally run rings around us when they're both are out. I'm afraid they're learning some bad habits. I see your sweet photos of doodles on the sofa or napping quietly and I'm jealous...My doodles are NEVER still enough to take a picture at all, unless they're confined in some way. They are angels when we take them on separate outings, love the car, sit quietly when they have to wait, watch happily out the windows, etc. But having them out in the house is crazy. And they spend a lot of time in their crates. Is this normal puppy behavior?
