Ronda pretty much covered all the bases...lol...I totally agree with crate training the new puppy as well...We did that when we got our Mastiff and though we have another dog as well, the crate training was not a problem. She had a couple accidents when she was a little puppy (one of which ended up with us having to tear up the carpet and get a new floor put in...lol), but, she quickly learned to go outside to do her thing. And, she never went in her crate!
