First post, new puppy mum! I have a few questions and dr Google can be very confusing!!
I picked up my 10 week old border collie pup yesterday, she's adorable. Her breeders lived and raised her on a property, and she's never been inside until I adopted her. She's a little shy/scared inside but outside she's very bouncy and playful. How can I help her settle inside better?
I'm feeding her the same food the breeders did, but last night when I checked on her at 4am, she had thrown up - and pooped, alot! Today, she hasn't pooped since 9 am and it's now 7:15pm. She threw up when I got home from work at about 3pm, I was only gone 3 hours. 10 minutes after I got home, she threw up/regurgitated food. I took her to the vet, as I like to air on the side of caution, 2 vets looked at her and couldn't find much, no temp, no reaction to her tummy being felt. So could the throwing up be stress from a new home environment?
Lastly, she's due for her 2nd vaccination Monday. I know so,e vets do 2 vac and some do 3, why is this? ,y last dog wasn't socialised at a young age - we waited till after last vac, and as a result he became dog fearful/aggressive. I don't want to repeat that with this girl, I want to be able to enjoy dog parks, the beach etc. She starts puppy school next week but when can I take her for walks, to the beach (I live 5 mins from beach) etc? I've read that before 16 weeks that it's the best time to socialise them and acclimatise them etc, but that seems hard if u have to wait for 3 vacs etc?
