I've been researching for a dog for literally like three years now, so I like to think I'm pretty prepared, but this is still my boyfriend and I's first dog on our own (both have had family dogs). I was originally set on an aussie (still kind of sad not go get one lol) but I just worry it would end up being too much dog for me energy wise. Plus they are bigger than a sheltie and I may end up in an apartment in the next 6 monts-a year. Maybe someday in the future..
ANYWAY! I was hoping you guys would have some helpful puppy advice, important books, or anything really you can think of
Hi one of the things people do or say is she is not going to sleep in our bedroom,but because the 1st night can be fraught,you just have to leave her,bring something back from the breeder,a bit of bedding with the smells of her brother and sisters,also I have made this mistake,everyone wants to see the puppy like a new baby and you have lots of visitors,you really should try to keep her quiet so she gets to know you,but after the first week,she should be fine.gemini
