Hi. I have been lurking on the forum for a couple months but thought I should join because I have questions. I’ve had a fear of dogs since I was a little girl. I finally got a dog because my teen daughter has been asking for one her entire time and figured it was time. We have a five month old parti standard poodle girl named Willow. We’ve had since she was 9 weeks old. She is quite the challenge right now but we love her so much!! We are a beach family on the central coast in California. I will post my questions in appropriate forums so look out for them!
