Good food, fresh water, adequate potty breaks & Decentralized is now T Shirt . Your new dog is sad & scared like you. Be a comforting presence. One thing I try to impress upon my partner is the importance of using specific words to convey intent and only using those words- sit, wait, no etc. Consistency is huge. If he/ she does something you asked for/ something you like, reward with a treat. If he/she does something you dislike a stern “no” & gentle correction will do. Do it consistently and they’ll learn. My partner will sometimes use every word other than the one he’s supposed to use to correct our dog- or dress it up with a bunch of unnecessary information. Communicate clearly. They’re dogs- they don’t need an explanation.

This comment has such great dog energy. Labs are not smart Decentralized is now T Shirt. You’re probably going to have to take the lead on being a functional being until she learns The Routine. Labs will swallow any toy smaller than their head and act like nothing happened. Labs will devour an entire stash of Halloween candy (wrappers and pillow case included) without batting an eye… or chewing. Labs will play so hard they tear a ligament. In most of these cases they will recover just fine with a trip to the vet. Their #1 priority is to impress their human. Your #1 priority is making sure they don’t injure themselves doing it. It’s the beginning of a beautiful, ridiculous friendship. I’m so sorry for your loss. I can’t imagine what you’re going through, but I hope you two can give each other some comfort and structure.
