So I was wondering how I get my Puppy involved in therapy Dog Training (if there is any) she already knows basic commands, I am working on her socialization skills (she's kind of getting a late start on training (7 months old) she's a shih-poo) we have all of her shots up to date! Has ALOT of energy to burn! Would love any advice, tips etc!

I use a dog rake because they have so much hair and can get tangled you want to de-shed their coat! you can use a slicker too and a furmanatior is awsome also (I've had a sheltie boy for 5 years I also groom dogs! It's great to get them into grooming very early so that they enjoy it all threw their life! Otherwise you can have alot of tangles and matts which isnt healthy! Enjoy your new baby!! Welcome to Sheltie Nation! hehe

Grooming > Clippering or stripping a Westie coat?

I wouldnt do this yourself have someone show you how to clip (especially strip) youur dog the first time...too many people actually tryin things themselfs and do more damage to their dogs coats then it's really worth just take him or her to the groomer and pay the 30 dollars (since you can do more damage by not knowing what your doing!) Videos really cannot show you the proper way to "Strip a coat) and No it dosen't hurt the dog (for those who say it does their obviosuly inexperinced in strippping) I haven't had the experince myself with stripping mainly because it takes ALOT of time this isnt somthing you can rush on doing and ones you strip the coat that's what you must contune to do (it's stripping or clipping) no change and it can take HOURS to strip!! just my educatinal advice!! (is a professinal groomer)

I dont know where you got the qouit about my dog passing anytging on (that didnt come from me_) lol anyways yes i get the loyalty bit however they want 300 dollars (my local vet) where as a vet i've used in the past is charging 175 (which is affordible) Yes i get the fact (i should save money for "emergencies (wow your sounding like my husband's mother) who dosen't understand that we live pay check to pay check....what part of "low-income" don't people get??????? if you pay all your bills and have nothing lefts (that includes food(for myself/husband and pets) all the "basic" then how would i have money to "put away"......???? saying that i ALWAYS make sure that my pets have food,love,toys,etc (and their shots) but i think some of you miss the point that i said i was "LOW INCOME".....NOT low income like i have money to burn...like i don't get subsdized housing or anything like that...we pay our rent, all of ourheat,hydro,etc..at the end of the day we have very little (yes i can "TRY" TO SAVE but some of you are missing the point beyound i was looking for what i could "afford" to pay for a spay..!! I thought people would be like "oh that's awsome you're getting her spayed...considering theirs so much judgment about spaying and neutureing and yet im getting some nasty comments....!!!

I think its kinda a waste of money ONLY because you can teach your dog at home the "basics" like sit,stay,come, it's name, to walk on the leash etc (that's what their going to teach your puppy) HOWEVER for socialization i think it's a great idea!! But they can be rather expensive i was looking into them and they want anywhere from 195 to 200 dollars!! like i said most of the basic stuff you can teach yourself at home!!! i'm planning on taking my puppy just to puppy playgroups but she is already working at home on all the "basics" i think puppy classes would be boring for her!
