My puppies making me SO proud. All of them started out just like any other naughty beagle puppy. Barking, whining, running behind smells, tugging and pulling on the leash and never paying attention to the other end of the leash. Eight weeks into the training and all of them are now quietly waiting for the session to start.
God bless their families for putting in all the hard work and never giving up!
Little Fred is just 8 weeks old but he is already toilet trained, does not destroy or chew things in the house, is well socialized to people, accepts handling and grooming, sleeps through the night in his crate without a whimper(he actually walks into it himself), comes when called, walks on a loose leash, sits before getting into the elevator, plays three different games, knows how to stay on his own for short periods and today he learnt to not pick up objects while walking with his owner in the parking lot. We started working with him when he was 6 weeks old and by the time he is ready for his walks outdoors after his vaccinations we are going to ensure that he is fully trained and responds reliably to the family👍🏼 A lot of people delay training and end up with a puppy with severe behaviour problems. Start early like Fred's family and start enjoying the love and friendship of a dog rather than spending the first year sorting out unnecessary behaviour problems.
Beautiful Hazel has the best family ever. She has been adopted from a shelter to grow up to be an emotional support animal for an elderly person in the family. The family did all the research and chose her carefully considering their lifestyle and their living situation. She has a beautiful temperament but needs tons of socialization to boost her confidence in new situations and with new people. This is going to be super fun! Keep watching this space for her progress!
