Hi, I'm new to this site and also got a new pup yesterday. A Dobie of 7 weeks. We've called him Major. He's been going outside to relieve himself. He tends to shiver a lot - I'm wondering if this is just nervousness as most of the time he's jumping around like any normal pup. Any ideas ? He seems a bit sceptical about having his bowl to himself as he takes bits out and takes them away and jumps around the bowl as if someones gonna come and take a chunk out of him. Bless - he's obviously not been high in the pecking order. It seems like an age since I had a pup. I lost my GSD to heart failure in Jan. He was 12. A great age but when they've gone it feels like just a short time. It broke my heart. I still miss him everyday. This site has really helped me to realise when the time was right to find a new dog friend. Thanks guys.
