Hello! My parents had dogs, but this is my first puppy (I'm 61). He's a 12-wk-old spoo, and I just got him 2 days ago. I read books and watched videos on training, but I feel I'm not doing nearly as well as I'd hoped. It would be great to speak with an owner and ask all my questions from day to day. Is there anyone out there who has successfully trained their spoo and wouldn't mind being my mentor for the first few weeks and answering my many questions? I'm sure few people would have time for that! Unfortunately, I'm on a fixed income and can't afford a trainer. I plan to do my own training in and grooming. The training videos make it look so easy. My breeder is great, but I know she's busy and I feel I can't keep bothering her.
