Congratulations! Pictures of puppies are required!
One of the best tips I can give is ~ crate train! I have 2 German Shepherds that were crate trained from day one and still sleep in their crates at night and are crated when we go away. It is their "safe place" and they often go there on their own when they are tired.
Also ~ PLEASE ~ remove the puppy's collar whenever he is crated as many dogs have been strangled while crated due to getting their collars or tags caught on the crate.
Another tip ~ make sure he is micro-chipped and the information is kept up to date.
