This is no doubt a common question but I'll be damned if I can have any luck with the search function.
In 3 weeks we'll be picking up the first dog for our young family, I've been wanting one for a while but waited till my girls were a little older (4 and 6 months)
We're getting a Yellow Lab femail from a reputable breeder in Perth and cannot wait.
In the mean time I'm busy puppy proofing our backyard and buying everything we may / may not need upon her arrival.
I've never trained a dog using a crate before but have done the research and it seems like a very effective method and so I have ordered a 36 inch crate which will be here before the pup arrives home.
I would like to get some kind of padding or bedding for inside the crate and was wondering what people suggest.
I understand I'm getting a puppy that will love to chew and would like to get something that is considered "chew resistant". Who know's I might be lucky and she doesnt like chewing (ha!)
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
While I'm at it, what size bowls should I be buying for water and food? Anyone suggest a good one online to buy?
