Welcome to this site. Lots of great folks with a ton of great knowledge to share.
I'm in Idaho, also. Just way up north. My advice to you would be to meet people through others you know in your new town. Maybe through your veterinarian of your place of work.
You could also frequent places where there are other dog owners. Or join training class.
Others here have much more knowledge than I do. I basically wanted to say hi and that your pup is beautiful. Cheers!
