Puppies are a great addition to any family.  But you don't want your puppies making messes, destroying furniture, or sleeping in your dirty clothes while your not looking.  It's a good idea to cage puppies at night to keep them out of trouble and give yourself a break from all of the puppy related responsibilities.

Step 1: Preparing The Cages

It is important to make sure your puppies have a comfortable place to sleep. Each puppy should have his/her own cage. Their cages should only be big enough for the puppies to stand up and turn around in. The only thing you should put inside each cage should be a blanket or crate mat for the puppy to sleep on and a chew toy to help with teething.

Very helpful, you can use the crate for training your pup too. See

The German Shepherd Site for more information and training tips

Good little guide. Might I add that in the first few nights, THEY WILL HAVE ACCIDENTS. Their bladders are so tiny it's unavoidable. If they whine in the middle of the night, try not to give them attention- but make sure they are warm, and if you think they need it, quickly take them outside to go potty.
