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!
BEFORE YOU POST
Our wiki has great articles on puppy basics as well as links to outside resources. Also, use the search tool to see if your question has been answered before. 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.
