    DefaultHello From Ireland

    Hi Everyone

    My name is Jennifer and im from Ireland, we have just got a new puppy called Boots and i found this site while lookin up info on labs, this is my first Lab, i have a little chihuahua called Roxy so this is a big change for me. So far things are going great, we have him nearly 2 weeks now and he is practically housetrained, we have had a few chewing accident where he has eaten my hubbys xbox wires and my phone charger but since i supplied loads of chewy toys he seems ok now

    I hope to make some new friends here and maybe ask for some info if possible

    Thanks

    Jenny

    Welcome! make sure you keep all wires off the floor they are very dangerous to puppies. For help go to the puppy training section With this being your first labrador do not over feed (it is very easy as labs are always hungry). Are you starting training now? If not do it. When he gets all his shots and is old enough i would reccomend puppy classes.

    Hiya,

    Yep i learned from the wire incident, i started training straight away, Boots is so clever he is nearly fully housetrained, he can go from about 9pm till 8am without an accident so i am very proud and during the day if he needs to go he will come up and bark at me. I have mastered "sit" so goin to try something new now. How much should i be feeding him do you think? And just another quick question if u dont mind, i bought him a Kong toy and i was just curious as to what you should fill it with as i have him on dry nuts only.
    Thanks again

    How old is he again? I have 3 month old english setter pups who get 1 cup in the morning,2 cups in the after noon and then some treat through the day. I fi am correct im guessing he is 10-11 weeks old so i would say 1 cup in the morning and another an hr or two before bed time. With the Kong i use peanut butter and some people also put carrots in with it. here is a weight chart for you~dog weight chart - The Purina Body Condition System Now Bentley who just turned one gets 3 cups in the morning 2 in the afternoon and some before bed. He runs all day so he gets more than a dog that would sit in a house and get only a 30 min walk.

    hi.depends what food you are feeding for the amounts.
    when y u say "dry nuts" do you mean kibble?
    you can fill it with applesauce, yogurt, peanut butter and freeze.

    hello and welcome from just accross the water in Scotland

    In answer to your question about what to fill the kong, my 2 love banana, so we usually mix a bit of banana with some yogurt and fill the kong then freeze them. We have them on rotation, so there is always a kong in the freezer. Mine dont get this every day, but they love it as a treat. Freezing it makes it last a little bit longer, although, my 2 can still get it emptied in jig time..lol
