I live in western Pennsylvania and just welcomed Tadaaki (8 weeks) from a breeder into my home. It has been a whilee since I've owned a dog; much has changed. 'Bad dog' was used a lot, it was recommended to housebreak a dog by pushing his nose in dirt dropped in the house. Nobody would think of feeding a dog with dry food only.
My goal for my pup is to be my companion and a very satisfied, happy dog. I have enough land but not enough canine neighbors. We will do lots of hiking and cross country skiing together.
