Liesel's First Day of School!!
Today....Liesel goes to school...we are all set with treat pouch & clickers. Class sizes are small....(max of four)...it should be fun! We have some work to do..as with any puppy..we need to work on some areas...such as:
#1 - Barking & lunging at people and/or other dogs especially when out walking..
#2 - Puppy nipping at hands & feet..
These are not huge issues...but we want to "nip" them in the bud..after 4 weeks of puppy K...we begin Basic Obedience.
In Liesel's defence..she has learned so much in less than three weeks since she arrived..
#1 - She knows her name...and comes running when called (treat reward optional...but that is the method)
#2 - She has learned to walk on harness & leash...like walking a sheep..she is everywhere...but still doing well...
#3 - And this is a big one...she is not quite as fearful of cars & large trucks...but that is a work in progress.
#4 - She loves the car & curls up in her seat & snoozes..
Potty training...is going well...for a doxie...schedule & repetition is key..weather permitting..we walk a couple of times a day...rain is simply not tolerated...
Now....who is up for a good old fashioned tug of war??
Wanna see who won?
Seriously? Does she need to be in my bed? (cause apparently she eats hers!!)
Pee S ** Liesel sends big waves to her family in Ontario! Thank you for allowing her to join our family!!
