New puppy help..
So I just got my puppy a week ago, and I'm not completely overwhelmed, just a little curious. I feel as if I am not correctly bonding with him. I feel that every time I scold him I am creating distance. That may sound dumb, but I want to do everything in my ability to make the most well behaved dog I can and I hear that all of the time in the beginning is worth it when they are older but I'm not exactly sure what I need to be working on to ensure that he will be well behaved. I have started training with him and he is a very VERY smart dog and we are almost already potty trained now just a few accidents! Any advice or tips would be much appreciated. He is primarily my dog, he will be going off to college in August with me. Thank you for your time.
