Hi Everyone, My husband and I will be bringing home our black lab on Saturday morning! Her name is Zoey and she will be 9 weeks old. We just had some general questions that we couldnt find answers to in books. - How early can we start bathing them? I know they are generally clean and only need spot cleaning but we want to get her use to it from a young age so that she doesn't give us a hard time later when she actually needs it. - When can we start brushing her teeth? we know that chew toys generally do a good job with keeping mouth hygiene on par but we also wanted to brush them once or twice a week to be on the safe side. We want to make sure our princess stays healthy! - Can we close the crate door from day 1 at night? we plan on taking her out just before bed and first thing in the morning (around 6am) but are still nervous about leaving her in there for 6-7 hours. - If we will be training her to go potty outside, should we still put puppy pads down everywhere in the playpen? Also, if she has an accident and goes inside, does that mean we need to start outdoor training all over? We also work full time but we still want her to be potty trained to go outside (we will get a dog walker during the day and we can work from home from few days a week until she is trained). We have got her a nice big playpen, crate, a few kongs, cuddle toys, blankets, leashes, harnesses and treats so she all set for her first day! Any other advice would be greatly appreciated! This is our first dog ever and we (well I am) very nervous!
