NEW PUPPY? NOW WHAT?

Having a new puppy can be an exciting and sometime challenging experience.  As a new puppy owner, it is important to realize your role and how your behaviour shapes the behaviour of your growing puppy.  Your influence over your puppy begins the moment you first make contact and then bring the new puppy home.

This is especially true when it comes to teaching your puppy proper house-training habits.
