Whew! What a night! We are fostering a puppy for the Humane Society of Forsyth County, and last night was our first night of crate training. We initially tried a couple of things that failed miserably, and left the entire household crabby and exhausted from the puppy’s crying, whining, and screaming echoing through our home. So my son and I set out on the internet, searching for that perfect article from Cesar Millan or some other puppy guru, who would know just the right thing to do. Let’s just say there are a lot of opinions out there on how to crate train your puppy; most of them wildly conflicting! But we settled on an opinion we felt made sense, and puppy and cheese in hand, I set out to the back bedroom where we keep her bed, determined that we would all sleep that night.
Victory! I’ll admit, I threw in a couple of my own techniques that no one but the puppy will ever know about. But it worked, and she (and everyone else) slept soundly until 6:40 this a.m., all happy and rested.
So goes the process of buying or selling your home. It’s something you don’t have to do very often, but when you do, you want to do it in a way that eliminates all the crying, whining, and screaming that comes along with diving into to it ill equipped with necessary information.
Buying and selling a home isn’t rocket science; there’s no universal “right” way. But there is definitely a process that can be tweaked to fit your own personal situation. So before you attempt to sell or buy your home, save yourself some money, time, and headaches. Educate yourself, or enlist some expert assistance.
