Congratulations to our September client spotlight, Desmond the Boston terrier puppy!
Desmond is around four or five months old; he is a rescue pup and is learning all the basics through our Day Training program! So far he has learned touch, sit, free (his release cue), down, leave it, drop it and come. He knows how to sit and wait for a release to get his food and toys, and he was housetrained very quickly! Des is smart as a whip, and getting a great start on learning everything he needs to be with his human companions!
In the last couple of weeks, Desmond has been teething a lot so we have also been teaching him proper bite inhibition, and getting him acclimated to wearing his leash without biting it! He’s also starting to learn how to heel, little bits at a time, as it is a complex skill and he needs lots of breaks to chew. Being a puppy is hard work!
Day Training is a favorite of ours because we get to work with dogs one-on-one and it’s a lot of fun! It’s also great for the owners because we are able to give more pointed advice on working with their particular dog, and “speed up” training so that it’s easier, more efficient and effective, and less stressful for all involved.
We really appreciate Desmond, and his mother and roommates’ dedication to learning how to best care for him and providing all that he needs to be the best little “Boston terrierist” he can be! 😉 Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to work with all of you!
