Today’s Puppy Camp Update for
Diane’s Canine School of Charm
Bear is slowly improving. He is learning not to step all over you, not slam into you when he comes 90 miles an hour toward you. Today he discovered he could sit and down in the kitchen,den and living room. He caught on to that pretty quick. He is learning patience, to sit and not get up like a jack in the box. Same with the down all though that is harder for him. He is learning to pay attention instead of jumping on the other dogs, that takes time. He is learning to look me in the eye, siting until I give him a treat. Walking on the leash is much better, he goes behind instead of running around the front of you. Barreling through a door or gate is also better. He is like a bull in a china cabinet. Just for the heck of it I am teaching him to touch. Taking your fingers off for a treat is much improved. I have 3 fingers left!! All kidding aside Bear is doing well. Diane
My Puppy Progress Report from Diane at Diane’s Canine School of Charm:
The man did much better today. He has such a zest for life that he thought he didn’t have to do anything I asked him except sit and that was momentary. Today he sat longer, walked on the leash much better and learned that biting the hand that gives him the treats is a no no. Down was better also. I love his attitude, he does want to please and he is smart, a thinking lab. Tomorrow we see if he comes when called with and without distractions. Take care. Diane
Today I headed off to boarding school at Diane’s Canine School of Charm. So much to learn about what my humans want from me but I am an eager student. I have also made fast friends with a golden and a cute little Weimereiner. I’ll keep you posted!
This photo is Diane meeting me for the first time. She also told mom that it was the last time she would let me jump up on her. What? No jumping? Hmmmmm….that’s a new one!
