Welcome! Bella is cute. Stick around and you can learn a ton.

Oh, and her nails look like that because they need a trim. :)

lol about the nails! (I'm not laughing at you in a mean way, just thought it was funny you thought she was born with a french manicure) Nail trims will need to be done at different times for different dogs-depending on how quickly they grow and how active they are. I think I have a diagram somewhere that shows how to and how short to cut the nails. I'll look it up for you.

I'm in Palm Bay Florida and used to drive over to Gainesville regularly to the university-my dogs were blood donors there. If you're interested in Bella becoming a donor let me know and I'll pass along the information. You'll obviously have to wait until she's a bit older but it's an awesome program with awesome people (and you get a ton of free stuff in return).

Hopefully the picture is big enough, if not I think you can click on it to make it a bit bigger.

What a cute lil pup!!

I'll share my favorite trainer Emily Larlham. She has this blog: http://clicktreat.blogspot.com/ and tons of positive training videos.

I really wish I could start all over from the beginning with my dogs and do it right. :thumbsup:

Also, you'll want to start getting her used to having her nails done pretty quickly. The more you do it, the more used to it she will get and will fight you less. You don't want to wait and have her turn into a spaz every time she needs a trim.

Welcome! Please read the Health and Training sections (Sticky's mostly) until you just can't read anymore...then come back and read some more :) There are tons of great info in those sections to get you started. After that, cruise on over to the General section for some more tips and such. She sure is cute as heck! I'm glad you're here and looking to do the best you can for your new addition.
