Hi Guys/Girls,

Within couple of months we will be proud parents of GSD puppy from Alta-Tollhaus. Being rookie parents, we are concerned that we will end up messing amazing life...

What do we have to prepare/buy/setup before we welcome the latest addition to our family home?

Thoughts? Ideas?


Cheers

Vijar

Well, you've started out on the right foot by joining this forum! ;)

It's so exciting to get a puppy! Male? Female? Name? Photos?

My puppy routine I've learned through the years is:
Crate by my bed
Lots of safe puppy toys for chewing
If you can, never give the puppy the opportunity to go potty in the house
Lots of praise when they go outside
No punishing
Lots and lots of positive reinforcement
Puppy kindergarten
Lots and lots of socialization without allowing a strong fear-inducing situation...don't drag or push the puppy when s/he is obviously frightened
(I love how my doggy daycare lady did it with Layla . . . she verrrrry slowly introduced her to other dogs, and intros were done first through a fence with people there -- it took weeks)

Welcome, what a cute baby!

There are a few dogs from the kennel where your little one is from on the forum, Nikon owned by Lies being one. You should check them out (do a forum search) because it will make you even more excited..lol.. :)

Robin, I know you well enough to know you are not kennel blind...you call 'em as you see 'em. All of these pups are very beautiful.

This litter is sired by Robin and Carlos's very handsome Cuervo von Huerta Hof.
