“Gold stars to you and your excellent and thorough work with him and us!!
We think he is doing great. He slept in my arms most of the way home.
He went to the vet on Saturday (was a little wiped out after that), and today he visited a dog training facility and we signed him up for a puppy kindergarten obedience class which starts 6/10. The Manager there said he “seems confident” and that we must have found a good breeder. We did!
He is just too sweet and loving and is bonding nicely to us. He is not very food motivated, but we have been using clicking to work with him to come and managing his unwanted puppy behaviors with toy distractions.
He has been sleeping through the night (with a gazillion stuffed puppy toys, including the duck you sent, which is a huge success). No fuss getting into his crate. He often retreats to the crate on his own to rest.
He has learned to climb stairs, but as of yet has not tried going down, so when he gets to the top he barks to come down. It’s pretty funny!”
OBie is a sleek and handsome black tuxedo mini aussiedoodle puppy with some adorable, super tiny white markings on his chest and snout. He has such a shiny coat! What a sweetie!
Congrats to Sherrie B and family.
