I read the Puppy 101 thread and didn't want to repeat previously asked questions I reserved Dr. Dunbar's Book Before and After Getting Your Puppy and a DVD he has on training I wasn't able to get Sophia Yin's DVD but I did get the book by the same name from our local library. DH and I will both be studying as we have experience with adult shelties but our time with a puppy was long ago and I realized in talking with DH he has very rosy remembrances of the chewing and puppy habits that we will need to be proactive about preventing. It is best to do your refreshing before you have a little one on hand. DH and I have had Shelties for a number of years. Our only puppy came to us from rescue at 4 months housebroken so we've never had this challenge. We are keeping our options for finding another dog with Katy passing as Annie is not suited to being an only dog. We may find a rescue which likely won't be a puppy, but we are finding a puppy might be a better option and with that is the realization that despite having raised two dogs from early years to senior years and another one in mid life the early puppy stage is something of a new thing we will need to research and understand before we move forward. I would appreciate any current references anyone has to offer on house training, crate training, etc. We have been the beneficiaries of others hard work in these areas it is now our turn to learn. Another question I have is anyone familiar with trainers in the Massachusetts area? We did take Bailey to training. Katy and Annie were old enough that they had basic skills when they came to us so we didn't pursue formal training we worked on their skills at home and they did well. I would like to find some good options as I we didn't find a great option years ago for Bailey because we had no idea how to find one. I suspect post COVID things have also changed in how one finds training.
