You understood the .first method that's a good start!

You should use Owner model instead and then the .first method just like you did in your code. Then we can use the pets model inside the Owner and .create with an associative array name: "Your Pet Name"

Good luck with Rails it is one of the premier web frameworks to learn.

owner = Owner.first
owner.pets.create(name: "Snoopy")

Thanks for the great information.
