Believe it or not, they also use the dogie door to go outside when they have playtime. They just use the aisle but it still allows them to potty outside if the need arises (or occurs to them) and also come in if they feel chilly. They enjoy the fresh air and it gives me a chance to clean up their messes and use the mop and vacuum.
All of them have 'brave and not so brave' moments and that is normal. Today, for instance, I put down the large metal lid that makes a racket. At first, they were curious but not willing to go near it. Then one touched in with his paw and it clanked. Before long, they were all pawing at it and could care less about the noise it made. It is these things that help pups learn to overcome a possible fear. This is why introducing all kinds of odd stuff is so important for the development of a pup's temperament and confidence. DNA can only do so much, environmental stimulation is of equal importance!
