Raiden turned 11 weeks old today and we had to adjust his harness for the second time 🙂
He has done much better since sleeping in the crate in the kitchen. He no longer gets upset because he can see us but can’t be with us, instead he focuses on his food filled toys and then sleeps.
Today we carried Raiden to our local pet shop…well first we swung by the park, then we walked through town to the pet shop and he chose a toy he liked, we popped into the train station and mooched back along the shops. He said hello to two staff members at the pet shop, four (separate) women, and a mum with a young child.
Zoey is still behaving perfectly normally, if a little giddier than usual, which we put down to the stress of that day. We’re not doing any intro’s with her and Raiden for a few days, to let her calm down.
She is overjoyed to have been reassigned the pen in the living room. She pootles in and out when the door is open, and if she’s too giddy and won’t settle she’s very happy to be put in the pen with a Kong and a Nylabone.
Everyone’s enjoying their walks at the moment, even if it is still waaay too warm out there…it’s mid-September and yet it was 17*C today, whyyyy?? Our house is so too warm, bleh! Which makes me ask HOW can you manage to snuggle and sleep under the duvet Zoey?!
I got a wonderfully awesome photo of the little guy today, mid bark and jump!!
And finally a training video. These clips are from today, making Raiden exactly 11 weeks old in the video 🙂
As you can see ‘sit’ is very much Rey’s default behaviour, which is awesome. When he jumps up, he quickly sits. When he wants something, he sits. When I walk around the garden, he follows and immediately sits when I stop. Yay!
He still knows touch, his name, lie down, in(to his crate) and a positive interrupter (ie. give me your attention). We are working on drop it, leave it, being calm around his harness (and not trying to bite, chew and tug it!!) and stay / wait.
Please excuse my “Wow yay puppy omb this is the most exciting thing ever yaaay you are so good!!” voice 😉
I took some stunning photos of Zoey today which I will post soon. Kasper is being left out haha so I’ll have to try extra hard to get a Kasper blog up too!
Hopefully we’ll be doing more stuff and I’ll be able to post more – I really want to get Zoey to the secure field at some point in the near future. This last week has been so stressful and my mood has been sucky, but hopefully (*touch wood*) we’re back on track now 🙂
