I'm new here, and since it says I should make a first post, here I am! I live in Surprise, Arizona and have recently adopted a 11 week old puppy. Her name is Bella and she is part Australian Heeler, part Springer Spaniel. She shows to be very intelligent and eager to learn. I've already taught her to sit, lay down, touch her nose to my hand, and is a little shaky at fetch (it's kind of hot out here, so it's understandable...). I'm having a hard time with her walking on a leash and biting/nipping, but I'm hoping with all of the knowledge floating around in here I might be able to find something that will work.
