Training Updates

Auston is developing into a great puppy! We are currently working on the foundations of house manners and crate training, adding in some work on impulse control around food and teaching our basic cues of sit and down. Auston is a great mix of a chilled-out sleepy puppy and an eager, ready-to-learn and work puppy. I am excited to watch him grow over the next year!

Auston is an easy-going puppy, who LOVES to cuddle! He is working on settling on his mat for longer periods of time and learning to differentiate between his mat and kennel cues. Auston is rocking going out in public, ignoring all the distractions and walking with a loose leash!

Auston is rocking going out into public and is learning to ignore all the distractions that come with public access. At home, Auston is working on his new skill spin and to sleep in past 6:30 am!

Auston is maturing into a lovely dog! We have been working on him settling in new environments, walking past distractions and spending small amounts of time unsupervised outside of his crate. His favourite activities are playing tug with his older brother and sun tanning on the back deck!

Auston continues to excel at cuddling and lounging in the sun! We are working on ignoring small dogs on walks and remaining calm around loud noises. We are also working on polishing up his cues of under, stand and chin.
