Hello! New in Jax FL

I've been reading along for a few weeks! I have learned so much already.

My girls name is Zoe and she is 9 weeks old. I had no idea I'd have so many questions already so I look forward to posting more. It's a little daunting knowing how much I've already done wrong and how little I actually know about the breed.

I'll post a pic when I figure out how

I adore her ears! Any suggestions for trainers here in Jax? We both definitely need it

Not sure I can help you with trainers, I don't want to steer you wrong. I was clueless with an 8 week old puppy and haven't stopped reading books and this site since.

Our first class was a puppy class at Petsmart. We did learn, but I wouldn't do it again.

My guy is 10 months old now and I couldn't be happier! We start our next class on March 3rd at Dogwood Park. I hope that is a step in the right direction as far as trainers go.

There are probably others here from the area that can direct you better for training. Let me know what you find!

I had originally planned to do a petsmart class but after time on here I think I will check out some other options first.

Yeah, we did the 6 week puppy course at Petsmart when he was 13 weeks old. He learned sit, stay, come, watch me and leave it. Some of which I was working on beforehand. He did just fine and learned the commands, but I feel like we should have just found a club to begin with.

I'm hoping to find a longer-term club eventually. And I hope this next trainer can help me with lose leash walking, Petsmart's attempts at that were feeble.
