Puppy! I'm getting one!
#1
I'm getting a puppy! A puppy puppy! She was born a few days ago! If not in that litter, then in the one due this week.

I'll be getting a Rottenweiler!

Oh lawd, what am I thinking?

I've never had a puppy puppy before. The youngest we've had (of all the dogs to go through this house) has been 3.5 mos or so. So this is gonna be so cool. I've been looking for one for a while now (about 3yrs) then had to save up. The breeder got hit by Hurricane Matthew and doesn't have power or internet right now so no photos. Just a quick update that they had 6 boys and 4 girls born to Cookie. Charlotte is due soon.

I've had a Rottweiler before. I got her when she was 6 mos and fell in love with the breed. I'm not a full breed fan but changed my mind. I trained Joella to be my Service Dog. When she was 8, I got Mike to train so Jo could eventually retire. Mike is a Rottie mix and while he does some SD tasks, he isn't good in public (he smiles which freaks people out) so I've been without since Jo died almost 4 years ago. This breeder has good, solid dogs with high intelligence and decent size. She has several pups that have grown up to be Service Dogs so I have hopes this pup will too.

I'm excited! A puppy! This is going to be sooooo fun. Or frustrating.

I have never had a Rot but I did often walk them at the local humane society. They are incredibly friendly and loving dogs.

On the puppy, the best piece of advice - I know you didn't ask, but I never let that stop me - is to be very consistent. No matter how cute or cuddly, draw you lines before you get the puppy then simply make sure you consistently maintain them, and both you and your dog will be happy!

Oh, and congrats, you sound like you will be an awesome puppy owner - we need more like you!

Oh yeah, I know about consistency. My partner however? Oy. Not so much. But dogs learn quickly who they can push and who they cannot, don't they?

Frank, you are so correct in the lines and consistency. I failed and then had to buy the book "Puppies for Dummies". Dogs are easy to train, it's the owners that hard to train. Look at me, I am still going to puppy training.

Yes, by turns. Sometimes even in the same minute. Laugh-a-lot

I will politely suggest keeping all CPAP equipment safely out of reach until teething passes.

Lastly, remember, someone is always being trained, the question is, is it you or the puppy that is currently being trained at any given moment in time?

We have all wood floors. Old old wood floors full of gaps and gouges.

My main concern is all the cables going hither and yon. Going to be bundling and hooking stuff to walls behind desks.
