There zre no paricular tips.  Just be consistent in your approach and training and she will trust you.  We normally worm from 6 months old and you're best worming her just before you move her to limit the risk of her contaminating the new grazing (wormers don't kill 100% of infestations).

Handle your youngster as much as possible.  Lots of grooming and cuddles and I would take her for little walks.  By the time my youngster was 1 I could take her out on the main road and she would not bat an eyelid.  She has such a trust in me it is an amazing feeling.  If she goes out on a hack and there are road works she is so nosey that she has to poke them with her nose to check them out.  People and dogs are the worst as she just wants to stop and say hello.

With regards to worming you need to worm her before you bring her home and then plan out a regular worming program.

with our youngster we handled him as much as possible grooming, fussing and generally making us seem like fun to be around,
