Watson is a bundle of energy and is quite affectionate. He enjoys being handled and is curious about the world around him. He has recently become comfortable going up and down the stairs to the backyard and is working hard to avoid distractions while outside. Watson is a champ at sitting, laying down, and waiting patiently for his food.
Watson is doing well. At six months, he is growing into an intelligent and gentle pup. He is working on tuning out distractions. These are challenging for him initially but, usually with the help of some peanut butter treats, he gets there. Watson recently met some new dog friends and a new, winding, staircase. He was a little shy with both at first but shortly after settled into appropriate play and figured out the new stairs.
Watson is a sweet boy and continues to impress us with his skills. He is working on settling and skills such as touch, back and stand.
Watson has been accepted into NSD University as part of our 2023 Spring class!
