Our mission is to provide constructive and supportive advice for puppy owners who need help with a problem, have questions about training, or just need some encouragement while going through the crazy journey of puppyhood!
Please read through the articles that are posted on our wiki page before asking for advice. The wiki contains articles to start you off and links to other outside resources on training and care. Still need help? Post away!
If you would just like to post a picture of your awesome puppy so we can ooh and aah (and we will!), the place to do that is in the weekly stickied photo thread. Otherwise, please start your post with your question or concern, and then if you'd like, feel free to add a link to your puppy photo at the end.
In your post, be sure to include your puppy's breed (no abbreviations, please), age, sex and how long he or she has been in your home.
