I'll be bringing home a Wheaten Terrier pup (born 2/5) the first week in April. We will be crate training. Do puppies adapt well to multiple crates? For example a wire crate (with a divider for when it's a pup) for it's primary home housing and a small plastic-sided crate for transport?
I like the idea of the more open wire crate so that I can see the pup better while in the home, but obviously that isn't best for travel. Are two crates too confusing, or will the pup simply associate the different crates with different activities?
And on a related note, bringing home the 8-week pup will involve a 5 hour drive home. We'll spend the night in the area the night before so as to be able to pick up the pup early in the morning in order to arrive home well before it'd be time to attempt to get the pup settled for the evening. For a 5-hour drive, should the pup be crated? Or held in a blanket or towel? Or a little of both?
Thnaks in advance for any suggestions.
