We're expecting our new puppy -- a Rhodesian Ridgeback -- in a few months. She (most likely, it will be a girl) will be 8-9 weeks old when we get her.

I will be the primary caregiver and alpha female. We'd appreciate any general or breed-specific advice on just about every topic related to a new puppy -- potty/crate/house training, feeding/nutrition, play/food/sleep/training schedules, typical dog behaviours and what they mean, training to obey simple commands, vet care, etc.

We've read about the challenges associated with the RR, but were so impressed with some of the other character traits of the breed. Our yard isn't huge, but there are plenty of nearby places to run/walk/exercise.

I'm looking forward to being part of the forum and being a good companion to our dog.
