Maggie is a 16 week old black Miniature Poodle. She is very cute and very clever! She is our first puppy, we have always had rescues (labs and standard poodles) before so they have always been older than 3 years. It has been quite a shock to the system having a puppy and learning a lot. We have finished puppy school and starting another training class at then end of this month. We are having a few miscommunications such as walking on the lead and recall can be a bit hit and miss with distractions but hoping these will be ironed out in no time. I have no doubt i will be needing some help and support over the next few years! Kate and Mags
Welcome to PF! Just know that there are plenty of threads here regarding recall! We've all experienced the same frustation with getting an absolute recall....especially with a young pup! Practice Practice Practice! Of course your questions are welcomed and we will all try to help you if we can! There are many here who are knowlegable in all aspects of poodlry!!!!!!
I pledge allegience to Ms Royalty

And to her rules for which it stands
One Princess under God
In the visible
With diamonds and bones for ALL

Lots of help and support to be found here so just jump in and read, read, read, and don't be afraid to ask any questions. And we love love love pics of puppies! So please post lots, lol!
Thank you all for such a warm welcome! All of your babies look adorable!
Lene, whether to take her out after the second vaccination or wait until the third was the hardest decision we had to make but on the vets recommendation we were walking her around the block after the second. She is just a stubborn thing and sits and won't budge if it doesn't suit her. I think i'll head over to the training section for some advice!
Lene, it seems to be a much talked about topic, whether to socialise early or protect them from unwanted diseases/viruses. Because she is an only child and after talking with our vet we decided we should take that risk, we are in an area that has not had parvo (touch wood) for years. They are such a worry aren't they?? Our baby has a couple of days a week where she is on her own for about 6 hrs, the other days we have a dog walker but it is very hard and a big worry when you have to go out and earn a living!
