Welcome to the Dog Forum. You will learn a lot here. I have. Maybe the first advice people will give you is to take your new puppy to puppy classes both to socialize her and for both of you to learn basic commands.
I am sure the more Knowledgeble members will have other useful suggestions

I have booked her in for her first puppy party next saturday which is basic socialization classes. she met her first other dog on new years eve which didnt go very well. the other dog was a 11week great dane who is twice the size of Madge. It was ok at first with them sniffing each other. they then started to play but Madge got either carried away or frustrated and started to go for the great danes throat and making that horrible nasty growle. hopefully it will go better next time but we have some puppy classes lined up if it doesnt

I have everything crossed that it will,

Thanks for the replies

P.s. i will get photo's on asap

Perhaps Madge felt a bit threatened by such a large dog Duncan. Puppy classes are a 'must' anyway. It will teach her to socialize with other dogs and help you to show her obedience too. Most dogs enjoy puppy classes, I know my Sheltie did.
