think ahead, understand what might be a problem and then make sure my communication and training works.

Yes, there will be challenges and failures so I have to have Plan B and Plan C ready to go. I also plan to share some of the other decisions that come up with a new home such as fencing, flooring and more. I’ll take photos and video as I go along.

To follow along, just search for the group called Puppy and Dog Training. I am filming as I go so if you have suggestions or questions, please put them in the comments.
