He's such a doll baby, I'm so in love here!
Let me share what I'm so proud of!
1 - He knows how to sit, pretty much on command. Despite distractions (my mom's yorkie), he's getting it!
2 - He knows (without my telling him each time anymore) that he needs to sit to get his leash on and off. We'll come in from outside and he'll go to the carpet and sit, waiting for me to get my shoes off and catch up.
3 - He pretty much goes to 'bed' without a fuss. He may whine for a minute or two if he's not very sleepy, but for the most part he'll quiet down and be quiet in his crate all night long.
4 - He's learned that he needs to wait for me to set the food dish down before charging it (him wanting to eat whatever I put down right then and there convinced me to do scheduled feeding with him). He waits for my "OKAY!" command and then goes and eats.
5 - He's not had an accident in the house all week! If he needs to go, he gets antsy and whiney and we go out. He's getting the hang of the potty command too, despite the rain we've been having. (He's a priss and doesn't want to get those tootsies wet!
6 - We're working on the 'down' and 'come' commands and he's catching on quickly with those, too!
7 - He's almost got 'leave it' figured out also. It usually gets his attention. We're working on 'drop it' but I can't expect a pup his age to really get this one yet!
8 - He cuddles sooo well.
Sorry, had to share!
