Default New puppy is home!

we brought our new baby pup home last night, he is absolutely the sweetest thing ever! we're totally head over heels in love. thanks to all who pointed me in some very good directions. we got the crate and pen all set up, our expectations are more realistic than they were when we got our first puppy and we're already working on housetraining, crate training and encouraging calm behavior.
I like the youtube videos put out by kikopup, is anyone familiar with her? I'd love your opinions. I know enough now that I cringe when I think back to what we did to our last puppy (sent him to a trainer at 3 months old who used a choke collar and was very big into that alpha stuff), but we do better when we know better.
I have one question which I will put into its own thread, and we still need a name.
open to ideas! (chocolate lab, will post a pic when I figure out how to do that)

happy holidays to all who celebrate!

Congratulations! and I'm looking forward to seeing many pictures of your new addition :-) Kikopup's videos are a terrific resource and many have used them with success.
