|Hi! I'm new too! I'm 6weeks old. Sis wants to say something:
With the chewing, just tell her no, then walk away or replace with a toy- he's a puppy and pups will chew- haha!
Crating: you might have too big of a crate if he still pees in it. Plus you need to let him out every hour to potty and gradually work it up until he can be in there for a couple of hours at a time- make sure that when you get home you take him STRAIGHT outside, don't wait! Pups have tiny bladders so they can't hold it very long. Also teach him to ring a bell by the door to be let out- it is my favorite thing to teach them becasue you may not hear a whine but a loud jingle you will.
I've had pups in my house for a long time (dogs that are now: 10, two that are 3, a 1yo, and now lil' Kasey) and I'm planning on my carer track to include dog training and general dog help so if you need any more help and can't find what you need, I'll be happy to help you out!
