The down side is that for the first 6 months of Aspen's life, he cannot have any negative experiences or training. Sure it sounds kinda nice, but puppy teeth are sharp, and it's tough having the little devil running around with your shoe and do nothing. It's tough catching him ripping up a sock and just walk away. When I have a puppy of my own, I'll be clicker training from day 1. The idea is that when Aspen begins training in bite work, he is completely confident and totally driven. Well, I'll give him an A+ on the confidence- nothing phases him. Including Parker and Skye's subtle hints that he is pushing them too far.
Since Aspen is not totally house trained, I had the pleasure of waking up every 3 hours to let him outside for a potty break. So when I got to work today, I thought I'd had a rough night. Then I noticed that Parker and Skye were also not acting like their usual energetic selves.
|Shhh... don't tell the puppy where I am!|
|Mom- I'm running away.|
