just a pupdate...Thursday, August 15, 2013
There haven't been any huge breakthroughs on the puppy/kitty relations front. Although there definitely have been some improvements. Squid now comes out of hiding while Klaus is playing and none of the boys have any issues with coming to get pet while Klaus is playing beside me. Doctor Octopus is still swatting and hissing at him only after Klaus does his little play bow thing that puppies do instead of immediately when he sees him. I can't wait to see how they're doing together in another month.
He's starting to get the hang on "come" but can still be quite easily distracted. He still awesome at walking on a leash but sometimes is a bit of a tugger. He's basically a pro at "leave it" and I'm happy to say he's fiiiiinally starting to like treats! I picked up this book about training a puppy because, like I've said before, I'm clueless about dogs. I mean I understand basically how to do things but raising my perfect companion is scary and it makes me feel a lot better to have some sort of reference. The internet just seemed like too overwhelming of a place to look for puppy info. There are so many different ways to raise a dog and so many varied opinions! But I think Klaus and I are doing pretty dang well together so far.
