Hi Eric! :welcome:

You sound like you're going to be a great owner and a great addition to the board. Here are some stickies, articles/links for you to read in your spare time :)

Lots of newbies get caught up in the dominance/alpha talk, so here are some articles that help give a better perspective of it. I think the last one is just general info, but also has some dominance/alpha talk in it as well.

Welcome! You do sound like you'd fit in great here! Thank you for adopting, and also for trying to be a good dog owner. I'll approve you later when I'm on my PC if another Mod doesn't get to you before then.

The links Jamie posted are great reads to help you get started. They are packed with tons of info. They helped me tremendously when I first joined!
