room to roam
I am wondering how much room I should provide for my two little babies to roam. They are four weeks old and right now I have them in a box that is about 39 inches by 33 inches. We take them out and let them roam on the carpet in our living room under supervision but would since I can't be there all the time I am wondering how much room I should provide for them as I am sure the box will be getting to small shortly.

I let mine when they were little only roam my living room for a few weeks, then I let them go into my kitchen, dining room. I made sure that I had all my rooms puppy proof before I let them go any further. Once they were 98% potty trained is when I let them roam the rest of the house freely. When I am gone during the day I keep them locked up in the laundry room so they can play and get water.

I have mine in a x-pen at that age and they have about a 4' x 8' area. As they get older I give them more room.

We kept our puppies in a kiddie pool which seemed like plenty of room for them to roam, easy clean up and easy access for us to take care of them. The pups just turned 7 weeks today ad 1 puppy escaped the pool this am so all the puppies are moving to the x pen in our dinning room. I loved the pool however cause we could just sit down and there were all the puppies. With our xpen we have to open to get in to get the puppies.
