Good afternoon! I have been lurching around on this board for months taking in all the information. I am a stay at home mom of a two and a half year old and a one year old. We are getting a puppy in May from a reputable breeder. I have done my homework! We are getting a female. I am so excited. We already have a dog and my kids are well adapted to the behavior they are expected to have around dogs. They are very gentle. I was wondering if anyone else has had experience with a puppy and young children and could offer any tips or suggestions or how they managed the puppy hood stages. Thanks so much!
