New owner to 6-weeks old Lab
I've drifted over from the rose forum, due to my new endeavor. I'm a dog owner! Woohoo!
We've always been cat people, so I have no idea what to do and where to go for advice. Hope you all can help.
Our new lady was born on August 10th, and she just received her first set of shots on Friday. We haven't picked out a name yet, so would need suggestions on names and also advice on first steps for new dog owners.
Items we have obtained so far:
1. Crate for training while we're at work/school. My 13-year old daughter will be home by 4, so lady would be in her crate for 8 hours. Sorry, if this is cruel, but we have no choice until we know more on what to do.
2. Food: Max brand from Petco
3. Toys (squeaky toys to ropes, to chewy toys)
4. kiddy pool
Please help with the name first then any advice to help us get accustomed to our new life as dog owners. Thanks in advance for all advice and suggestions!
