Hi.

I'm a new member and new golden owner. It's been 48 hours since Pichu arrived and things are going well. I do have a few questions I'll begin asking on the other forums including how long I can crate a 6 month old puppy, and how to train him (housebreaking is going well).

He's scheduled to be fixed this Friday which I'm nervous about as far as his trust of us, etc. The SPCA requires it, though, so I'm kinda stuck.

I'm sure they'll be more as we get to know each other which I'll be posting!

Welcome

Check your local city ordinance. Ours allows you to wait or not spay/neuter so soon if you pay a higher registration fee. You can always do it later.
The vet said he doesn't really care either way because responsible owners and breeders with litters mean more clients for him.
