The Life Of A Dog Loving Man.
Mori's first morning home..
We'll it's been an interesting first morning with Mori and Pongo.. I got out of bed to let the dogs out at the break of dawn. Realizing I needed to keep them separated as I won't have Pongo a 14 month old dog, dominating or in any way affecting the 16 week old puppy.. Mori is slated for a life of working dog status, everything is up to me in controlling just how his development goes in the next few months. I forgot just how much work a puppy can be.. Two dogs all the more.. Keeping them separated and apart by degrees will be my first daily challenge..
Pongo on one side of the sliding glass doors or in his crate or the kennel. He proceeded to take his frustrations out, after a few minutes of looking at the puppy from the outside sliders around the sun room, by vaulting over into the neighbors yard.. Don't even get me started! He has a rude awakening coming soon.. Capping the kennel's first of the week with a chain link cover to start. This negative behavior of first chewing through the fence line, then starting to vault over the fence to go see the neighbors dog's, is going to end soon, with some creative dog training measures!
Looked up and realized that it's only 7AM on a Saturday morning. Neighbors are going to kill me! I woke up and didn't even look at the clock. My mind went right too, what do the dogs need? Mori especially has to get used to the back yard and start getting used to the big new world he lives in.. He's been all over the place this morning squatted on the floor to christen his new home and let me know he's just a puppy.. I took him out to the back yard several times. He did his thing but I guess it wasn't good enough, he just had to show me that he's just a baby and will need some work...
Put Mori and Pongo in there crates so I could write this. Mori finally stopped pitching a bitch in his crate, I can now go get him out praise him and let him out in the back yard again.. First golden rule, never go get a puppy out of the crate when there squallering.. It only teaches them to yell all the louder.. Let them tire themselves out, then when there quiet.. Only then do you let them out.. They soon learn that when they are quiet is when they will get out..
Ah yes! The life of a dog loving man.. It's a lot of work, a pain in the ass at times but I wouldn't trade it for the world..
