We have had our yellow Labrador puppy almost 3 weeks - she is now 11 weeks. Thought we had planned carefully but now realise hadn't really prepared myself for this. We already have a 10 year old black lab who is the most gentlest loving dog. She has not taken well to new arrival (won't stand up for herself and waits for us to 'rescue' her) and at the moment, we are keeping them separate - puppy in kitchen, baby gate at kitchen door. I feel so guilty about this and with the demands of new puppy have made myself quite ill. Husband is laid back, hands on and says all will be well and we are doing all the right things but I am not so sure. We are in our sixties (he 6 years younger than me). I am retired and he works from home but does have to go out when necessary. Think I have got myself into a ridiculous negative state. Puppy eats well, is becoming toilet trained but some days we have a lot of accidents and also at night. She is responding to early training and I have her and I booked on a training course beginning in 2 weeks time. Has anyone else felt like this and how do I pull myself together?
