Apparently it's the season for new dogs joining families. Mandy welcomed lovely Molly a couple of weeks ago, my folks adopted a Beardie x Border collie last month and I seem to have acquired a huge beast of a boy called Laird.

No matter how experienced you might feel as a dog owner, I can promise you that a new family member always comes as something of a shock.

They do things differently, they react in new and exciting (or terrifying) ways...because dogs really are individuals first.

It's why we might mention a breed trait when you ask us "why does my dog do that!", but really it's just as much about who your dog is as a unique personality.

You can expect some truly hilarious updates as I dive into living with an adolescent (15 month old), huge (42kg) German Wirehaired Pointer. And I promise to video the best bits too!

If you're bringing home a new family member who isn't a puppy, I strongly recommend this book (available as hard copy and e-book).  It's simple, straightforward and a brilliant reminder of what to plan ahead for.
