We have just become the carer for a 9 week old rat terrier x foxie and are very new to the idea.
We are reading a UK author, Jan Fennell (The Practical Dog Listener) and are finding it a great help.
As we are approaching our first night can anyone offer advice as how we handle any upset that 'Nelson' will go through.

I would have the puppy in your bedroom in a crate. You need to read some specific puppy books. Ian Dunbar is very good . Jan Fennel isn't very popular with the dog trainers/behaviourists in the UK. She's known as Jan Flannel. Rank reduction rules such as going through doors first and eating in front of your dog means diddley squat to a dog .

There is a Uk forum where you can ask for advice from a trainer/behaviourist Gill White and others.
