Here I am in my second week of puppy ownership.
Wade has been getting better about his social skills. I’ve been physically presenting dogs to him, booty-first, in an attempt to teach him how he should properly greet another dog. So far, so good. He definitely prefers big dogs, and tries to play with little dogs, (unfortunately, the little dogs are usually older and don’t want to play anymore).
We’re working on some trick training, along with his basic obedience. He knows sit VERY well, he’s got a down, shake, high-five, drop it, and “hup!” over a broom handle. Detailed post to follow.
Wade’s new favorite things are his toys. We cracked and bought him some stuffed animal toys… He LOVES them!
Using the toys as rewards is perfect as well. That’s how he learned “hup!”
Mostly, I just wanted to post this adorable picture of him…
