Hello everyone!

My cockapoo Stella is just about 4 months. She was born 11/16/10. I have spent a lot of time out in the freezing (-20 fahrenheit wind chill) weather. :) with the potty training.

I have had 2 other cockapoos but have never started with a puppy. Had to put my 15 1/2 year old to sleep in December.

Our last dog had a lot of issues so I am working hard so Stella will not. Socializing, grooming, etc. I still can't believe that I have a dog that will jump in my lap when I sit down with a comb and brush!

I live in the States, in Iowa. I know most of you are in the UK. One difference I see is the field walking. Here, I would get in trouble for trespassing most places. I do have a fair size fenced yard and we have a walking trail close by when she is fully immunized.

My biggest problem is loose leash walking. She jumps up a lot.

I just wanted to say hello!

Hi Jan :)

Congrats on the new puppy! Sounds like you know what you are doing though. I can totally relate to you on the freezing weather/wind chill thing. My dog was mostly potty trained before the cold weather hit here but somedays it is really hard to force myself out the door for that walk she needs. I am tired of seeing white everywhere I look. Can't wait for Spring!

Thanks for the welcome.

I HAD two others. Sadly, they are gone now.

I think I am getting to a sassy stage.
