    Dave and I are seriously thinking of adopting a puppy towards the end of the year. I want to be as prepared as possible so I am looking to purchase a book(s) on proper care and training of puppies. If anyone has any basic advice to share, I would very much appreciate it. :)

    Ok so things are starting off slowly. She was really stressed about having Mandie here and so she wasn't very co-operative. But it's been a week since Mandie found her forever home and things are progressing slowly. I have three clickers (yah I'm obsessed) and I have to remember to use the...

    Hi everyone. I have a question regarding our new puppy Freckles. Everytime I take her outside to potty or she does something good and I praise her, she starts growling. Is this normal puppy growling from being excited or is it something I need to worry about? She also seems very nippy, is there...
