It’s been 7 months since we got our very dog, Mellie, a Border Collie. She just turned one a month ago! We got her when she was 4 months old and boy were we in for a ride. I think it’s time to do a post on my experience of getting a new dog and also some reviews of shops/dog trainer/cafes that we frequent together with some tips and what to expect for first time dog owners. I’ve always thought that I am more of a cat person but getting a dog is a whole different ball game (pun intended).
