Training Updates

Bill aka Billy is a smart, confident little boy. He has adjusted quite well in our busy household that includes two other dogs and two children, ages 9 and 5. His loose leash walking around the house and backyard is coming along really nicely. Very proud of our little Billy.

I am six months old and loving life! I love hanging out with my big brother Rolo. We follow each other around the house, play with our long stuffed snake together and even curl up to sleep with each other! My humans told me that my big bro is heading off to his adult raiser soon and that one day I will too! I have been on a few outings with my humans and I get a little distracted by all the people, but my human told me not to worry because I will get there with some more practice. I love to sleep and will even curl up with my humans. My humans think it’s quite funny to watch me especially when I am dreaming! I am currently working on my recall. I respond really well to “puppy puppy” and we are working on me responding to my name. My human will call me and make the big bro wait until I get to her before calling him over. I always turn back and make sure he is still sitting, but once he is called he races over to join me!
