Hello From Iowa!

Good morning!

My fiance and I adopted a 8 week old Australian Shepherd from a wonderful family on Saturday. His name is Jasper and he is all sorts of puppy!

He is our first puppy as adults and so, we are basically learning everything from scratch. Needless to say it is tiring, trying and completely heartwarming when he does decide he is going to listen!

Prepare for an influx of questions from us. Thanks everyone.

Welcome!

As the owner of a 1 year old Aussie I recommend getting a trainer and starting when they are young. My goal is to eventually get mine into agility. He has boundless amounts of energy, I wish I had that kind of energy.

Yes, our veterinarian also suggested that we get this little guy into puppy classes as soon as possible. Once he gets his rabies vaccine, we definitely want to enroll him in something.

Thank you for the welcome!

What a sweetheart!

Be sure to check out our "Dog Training and Behavior" section. At the top, there's a place for puppy questions and answers.

Thank you SusanLynn! I am on it.

Little guy has already learned 'sit,' 'come,' and his name. I am really quite amazed at this considering how bullheaded he is otherwise.
