Re: First time dog owner "wannabe", with lots of questions ...

Read 'The Dog Listener' by Jan Fennell from cover to cover. She advocates the gentlest and most humane ways of training your pup. It will help you stave off niggly little behavioural problems later.

Also, find out about a well-run puppy playgroup near where you'll live (ask your vet for a list; or me - I have a list given by a guide dog school). Most of the Swiss like their dogs to socialise well.
