Hello folks, got our 11 week old black lab last week. My first dog in 20 years! She seems happy enough with the crate and sleeps through the night with no issues. My little 7 year old girl is struggling a bit to bond as she doesn't like the jumping or nipping. I do my best to reassure her that it will stop and they will be best friends. I can't wait until we can go long walks and puppy learns good recall. We're thinking of joining a puppy class as we don't want to feel frustrated with the training. Good idea?
