ok. Almost all have spent roughly 2 weeks in their new homes. They are getting the hang of a new schedule and are starting to learn do's and dont's. The first 6 months are the most crucial. You want to teach them as much as you can. Good habits not bad. They are babies still. They get into everything. You want to learn the correct way to trane them. I highly highly recommend a puppy class. You learn so much valuable info. I like the smaller mom and pop trainers. I'm not against the big box stores but feel you get more personalized attention in the smaller stores. If you need help locating one let me know. This also gives you bonding time with them. It reinforces you are master. These 6 months can make a lifetime change in your relationship with the pup. I can tell you this first hand. Bella went to puppy school just like every dog we had before had done. I decided that I didn't need to take curly that I could do it my self. Well I never took the time to truly trane her. She can sit and stay. But she is not trained. It shows. We are now enrolling her in a basic class. It's easier to learn good habits than break bad ones.
