Congrats!! She’s adorable!

After years of talking about getting a pet, Darling Husband and I finally took the plunge!  Our little guy comes home on Oct 2nd, and like you, all I’ve been doing is reading up on the breed/training and puppy proofing our home! 

The one thing we did as a prep is decide on rules ie – the dog is not allowed in the bed or bedroom, and a list of other things so that we’re both on the same page when it comes to training him.

Watson – he’s a Vizsla!

aw, how cute! i miss when my doggies were puppies and i could carry them. now they just knock me over, haha.

as cute as they are, puppies are pain in the butt sometimes! definitely puppy-proof your home/yard. they will chew anything and everything: paper, plants (if you have any poisonous plants make sure they’re out of reach), shoes, rugs, they’ll get into your trash….my dog is a catahoula, which is a climbing breed, so nothing is safe from her, haha. we bought bitter apple spray from target and that helped keep my dog from biting/chewing on things.

Oh my gosh! I’m totally with you on this one. I’ve always wanted a German Shepherd and ever since we moved into our house I’ve been OBSESSING over it! We did tons of research, picked a super reputable breeder, prepped the house (and ourselves) and waited. We have a specific need for him (aside from family companion) so ill be working with a trainer as well (the training program is actually part of the breeder’s company.) The right pup came along and we finally snagged him on Saturday! He was actually already started in his training, completely crate trained, and socialized with kids and babies. His potty training has been going really well. I guess we just had a head start. Lol. 

This is Boss! He’s 5 months. 

Good luck with your pup! Just remember to stay patient. Puppies are a ton of work but so worth it!
