|Hi I am new to Dogster, and dog ownership in general. As a quick back story, I have been desperately wanting a dog for years now, but my long time boyfriend and I decided it was best to wait until we were in a more stable time in our lives(i.e.; out of school, more financially capable and had the time to dedicate to dog ownership). About three weeks ago, he introduced me to a 5 month old puppy at the animal hospital he works at. Long story short he surprised me with her as a birthday gift, and now I have a puppy who I love love love. That being said, I am new at this and am totally lost. We are working on getting a trainer to come in and work with us but as a stated she has a broken leg among other issues from living on the street that need to be healed before we can really start training. In the meantime I don't want to form any bad habits( which I already have) and hoped to get some advice from other dog owners and experts such as yourselves. I was just wondering what would be the best forum for me to post under, though. Were would I get the most help for training and behavior ( but also tailored for her she is a jack russell mix) . I didn't know if I should post to which of these:
behavior and training
or one I may not have even considered.
Thank you all very much in advance.
