Thank you to everyone for the warm welcome.
I do like the advice of training in a group. I know that porties really enjoy socializing so it will be a big factor in finding a training school. There is a great dog park near me, unfortunately I know that Puppies shouldn't go to the parks until they are older. So any other social options will be important
I will continue on reading the forums with all their great information. I'm sure a lot of the answers I'm looking for are on there.
The breeder has told me that she has a great vet. unfortunately he's an hour away. Although I want to make the best choice for my pet, I'm just not sure an hour drive each way is necessary.
