CONGRATS again!!

Thanks. This is very interesting. I've never heard of this. I did titers on Callie for distemper and parvo but at age 7. Does the breeder do this nomograph testing? If she has not, then there is no way to get this info regarding the immunity , right? I will ask her tomorrow when we go to get puppy. Thanks

yes breeder tests the bitch to know when her immunity of parvo/ distempter run out and they need to be vaccinated. we only vaccinate several times to ensure that moms immunity is not killing the vaccination. tough on puppies to have so many unneeded vaccines. definitely ask hopefully she has tested the bitch nad the nomograph info will come in your puppy packet. congrats on your new baby!! SO fun!!

Congratulations! Excellent advice from Maggie’Voice. I worked when we had one of our pups. Fortunately, my job was only 15 min away so I was able to come home for lunch and let him out. I never used a puppy sitter and all of my dogs did well. Good luck to you. Please send photos when you can.

I have been using a professional pet sitting service since Ned was 9 weeks old. It has been a great experience. The company I used is really reliable and professional. He has a primary walker, named Betty, who he has really bonded with. If you choose to hire someone, ask around for recommendations and make sure that the company is legitimate. They should have clear policies, good communication methods, and liability insurance.

Thanks! So far, my neighbors are chipping in to help for the time being. Maybe I won't need a service I am hoping. Worse comes to worse, I will start to research some places and a friend of mine has started to use a service. But I am hoping I won't need one.

Here she is, our new puppy. Were not 100 percent settled on her name as it's only been 2 days but we're leaning towards Coco, short for Coconut. And a middle name of Butters bc we met a lovely golden on vacation with the name of Butters and fell in love with him. And moms name is Buttercup so feel it fits nicely. She's adjusted immediately to our home. Sleeping through the night in her crate with no crying and no accidents. She's becoming more at home with us and has quickly turned into a land shark! I've been using firm no and redirection and giving her a bone or toy to chew on. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated bc she chews everything from our feet to our clothes and everything in between. We are in love.

She's beautiful! Congratz again! On the biting, that's what you do, just correct and redirect. Expect the land shark phase for about a month or so maybe 2 if they are stubborn about it.
