Training Updates

Norton is a very smart, sweet, affectionate, inquisitive pup who loves to play, sniff, explore, and especially cuddle. When not playing with his puppy raiser he is great at finding appropriate things to do to keep himself entertained and is often happy just laying down on his bed watching TV or watching the world go by. During the workday when not sleeping in his crate he likes to calmly lay on his office bed, play with his stuffies, or watch his adult raiser while he works. Norton is very good at sitting, especially when he thinks there might be a treat or opportunity to go outside waiting for him. He is currently working on the reliability of his down, off, mat and wait cues. Norton is getting REALLY good at sitting on the back mat whenever he needs to “hurry up” which is helping him to avoid any accidents.
