Bezzie is currently with his volunteer puppy raiser. He is being taught a foundation of house manners and cues, for becoming a well-socialized part of the community.

Training Updates

Bezzie has quickly wormed his way into our hearts. His full-body “wiggle” is hard to resist when he greets you! He accompanies me into work most days, and he has such a knack for sleeping away the days! Bezzie has been working hard around the home and at my workplace, gaining a reliable response to the sit, down, and mat cues (he loves his bed!). He’s also learned a couple of fun new skills, such as spin and visit. We have been diligently working on his on-leash response to dogs. With a bit of distance, most of the time, we can now pass by a dog on a walk with no vocalization! I am most proud of how far he has come in that regard. Prior to Christmas, we were beginning to work on his people distraction in public spaces. I know how much he loves people, and it has been really rewarding to see him learn how to stay on task even in busy areas! He’s such a smart pup, and I very much look forward to seeing the impact he will make in someone’s life in the future!

Bezzie is growing quickly and learning lots! It was so rewarding to see all the skills we had been practicing at home translate into public when things opened up briefly. Bezzie has also been working hard in classes on dog distraction and settling around other pups. We have been increasing the amount of time he is left home alone out of the crate and he has been acing it. He continues to be a happy, wiggly (he’s a full-body tail-wagger!), affectionate boy.
