Bonne Chance, Pooh!

From Pooh’s new family: September, 2016

 

Hi, we wanted to give you an update on Pooh. It’s amazing how much he has changed in 3 months time, especially now that he nears the 1y birthday mark. He lost quite of his “puppy behaviors”. There was a phase where he was scared of everyone on the street. He just entered the phase where he loves to tear up toilet paper, clearly knowing that that’s not OK. 

 

He’s amazing in training. He can stay / sit / go down / roll over / touch very easily. We’re working on his recall right now, leaving food and going to his mat. We also managed to drastically decrease his territorial barking.

We are working on his reactivity – I started walking him more, keeping calm, made him focus on me and it hugely helped. We’re not there yet, but at least he isn’t going crazy anymore when he sees a dog, but stays relatively calm. When there are no dogs around, he walks great. Always on the right side, his pulling the leash is decreasing exponentially… I still remember the day I walked him home and him running in every direction, it’s a big difference now. We are still working on his separation issues too.

 

Other than that, he is amazing. He is really a joy to train, to take to the beach…he
