1st dobe - getting prepared
hi all, i've regularly came across this site doing my research and have read my fair share of threads. We are finally getting our 1st dobe and figured it would be a handy place to sign up to.
i've had a look around but cant seem to find anything definitive in preparing for your 1st/new pup. id love it if people could share any threads or sites with information they find helpful, i've read through most available over the contemplation stage (about 2 years lol) but would like to go through it all again so im ready when he turns up (mid September).
starting with the basics of making sure he has everything ready (bed, food, toys, crate etc) through to our first week with him (do i leave him to settle on his own first day, do i stay with him all day etc.). I have had family dogs before but the responsibility on first impressions wasn't so much on me and with a dobe i dont want to get it wrong. so any and all advice on the first day/week/month/whenever would be very much appreciated!
