Hello, I brought home our new lab puppy on January 1st. He was born on November 4 so he is almost 9 weeks. I have to admit I’m completely overwhelmed. I love him but am super stressed out to the point of tears at times. I took some time off from work and I am supposed to be returning to work tomorrow. I haven’t yelled or done a (conscious) negative behavior towards Sam but he doesn’t seem joyous around me. He wags when other people are around and approach him but not me. I’ve been militant about taking him out to pee all the time to limit the accidents inside. He loves outside which seems to be hindering his house breaking because he gets distracted by everything. The wife is stressing about me going to work tomorrow. She seems overwhelmed by the idea of having him all day while I’m at work. I don’t want to stress the dog but I really didn’t know how much I didn’t know.
