    Default Bogey 13 weeks!

    What a little gem we have on our hands! He is growing so fast-- went to the vets for his post-stomach distress-virus-wrong food- syndrome: he is PERFECTLY fine! Weight was 18.3, poos are solid and small, andhe is doing great on Fromms beef frittata!

    He is mastering many commands, but I am most proud of "come"! No matter where he is, even outside and very distracted ( like digging in my neighbors flower beds), he will respond immediately, even if he can't see me! Have put this to the test many times in different situations- all with success! Except for the time my hubby couldn't find him and there was no response to " Bogey come!" Seems our little guy got INTO the bathtub, but couldn't get out! He got the reward for whimpering to let us know where he was! I mus t admit, his motivation is the treat at the end, but who cares? I ALWAYS have treats on me so the rewards are endless! When he gets a little older I will start skipping the rewards, but I don't want to mess with a good thing!

    Biting? Well that's another thing! Still chomping at our ankles and toes but he really settles down after a stint in the pokey ( his crate) although sometimes his good behavior is short lived and parole is revoked.

    OCD behavior? Absolutely! When we take our daily walks, he refuses to walk by the first 3 houses in our circle- we have to carry him past the "evil"houses, then he walks fine! BUT he WILL walk past them on the way home!

    We are so enjoying spending so much time with him- a luxury I couldn't do with any of my other dogs!! What a difference it has made!
    He's a keeper!!

    He is precious! Did you take him to a puppy class? Harper comes home next week and I can't wait. It sounds like he is doing a great job with the training - you should be very proud of him!

    He sounds like he is doing very well the only thing that stuck out in your post to me, was putting him in the Pokey for being bad (in the crate) Everything I've read about crate training, the #1 rule is, not to use it as punishment. When Hershey would be 'teething' on us or his sister Gizmo, we would put a toy directly into his mouth, a loud YIP or OUCH would also get his attention and he would stop trying to use those needle teeth on us
