First question.
At what age should she start eating dry puppy food? Right now she is on wet food and she is around 8 weeks old.

You can start her now on dry puppy food, if she is having trouble wet it down and let her eat it that way. Keep her on the wet for awhile too.

Some pups are better at then others but as time goes on they can go longer and longer. Probably safe at 6 months for a few hours.

Okay, I think that's all.
Thanks guys
NOw! She will learn slowly right now because her attention span is short BUT she will learn.
