I would just like to say that I originally came onto this site to ask advise about choosing a dog. And even though I know that I have asked some dumb questions, everyone has always been real nice to me. Thanks for all the advise, and thanks in advance for the dumb questions to come!
mls, I didn't get one yet. My husband and I went on vacation 2 weeks ago, and didn't want to get one before that. And now, we are going to wait till spring, because I don't want to housetrain a pup in the winter. So that's why there will be more questions coming!
I always found it easier to train in the Winter. We bought Oscar in January and he potty trained in 2 weeks. But we do live in North Tx and winters aren't that harsh. I feel like when its cold out the dogs will do their business faster so they can get back in the warm house.
LOL....my bf says I always get dogs during the winter so he will have to freeze when he takes them out at 2am. So with Donata and Ruby he was happy. We got Ruby in March and Donata in June. But Heidi was January, Buster November, Diamond and Diesel November. Those were some cold nights for him. And it was before the fence was completed so he had to go out with them.
frostygirl (((((HUGS BACK)))))) Oh I think this whole thing is becoming so sweet I will cry. P.s. I think you are doing the right thing in waiting until spring or summer to get a dog. Easy to train and you won't mind standing there waiting and waiting and waiting and..........
