Greeting!

Just wanted to introduce myself - - I'm Dee, and my puppy is Ginger. Just picked up my 10-week old, reddish-chocolate cockapoo sweetie on Sunday & while she's unfortunately battling her 1st round of fleas :eek:, she's an absolute sweetie pie. And also a little crazy, which I love about her.

So far, I've taught her to sit & stand on her hind feet, and she actually loves her crate. I live on the 13th floor of a high-rise apartment, so getting her outside to potty isn't an option. But she's doing pretty well with the training pads (her aim has only been off once or twice :). Can't wait for her to get her last round of shots so I can get her out with other dogs. Not only puppy class, but my apartment hosts "Doggy Happy Hours" once each month.

Look forward to connecting with you on this journey with my new family member...

aww poor wee girl. try giving her a garlick tablet in her dinner each day. its ment to help keep ticks and flees away.

just be carfull about getting her to stand on her back legs so early you dont want to do her any damege.

have you looked into those indoor dog pottys(not a substitute for a walk) they are ment to be good for dogs in high apartments.

you will have t get some photos up of her playing with the dogs at doggy happy hour, sounds like fun.

oops forgot to say welcome, hope you enjoy the forum, Ginger is a wee cutie.

my mum loves the red colour she realy wants one that colour.

Ginger, continued

Thanks for the garlic hint. We'll see how it goes. I'm now furiously cleaning my house to get rid of any potential infestation (found some under the sofa pillows & she hasn't even been on the sofa yet). But probably needed to do a really thorough cleaning anyway :D

I'm not going to bother with a dog potty at this point. Just going to use the pads until she has a bit more control & her last round of shots, and then I'll start taking her out for walks. Right now, she'd never make it down the 13th levels in the elevator without an accident. I know that means basically training her twice (1st to go on the pads, and 2nd to not go in the house but during walks), but I think she's smart enough to make the transition.

Looking forward to sharing with you all.
