Puppy Training

I was training our puppy this afternoon, his name is Pilot, and I realized that he may not be as smart as I originally proclaimed him to be. While I don’t expect him to pick up on the trick, “Shake,” on his first try, I do expect that after a half an hour he would stop biting the hand he’s supposed to shake with and then immediately jumping for the other hand with his treat… as if to say, “I did the trick, now I get the treat!”

I have however, finally taught him that when I throw his toys across the room, I want him to go get them, not slink away and pout in the corner like I just canceled Christmas. Fetch is the new game word and I’m proud to say that he can respond to it with confidence.
