This morning was spent puppy training in Clapham. Mr Bones caught up with the adorable Freddie who is now a big ten weeks old. We first carried out one of our 'Puppy Love' home visits with him when he was only eight weeks old, to help his amazing owner learn everything needed to settle him in. Freddie had been adopted from Battersea Dogs and Cats Home, having been hand reared as his poor mum was a stray who had died giving birth to the litter. He was the only boy in a litter of seven. The foster home had done an amazing job with him.
Mr Bones was so proud of his progress upon returning today. He is now house trained and widdles on command! He knows his sit, down, give a paw, nose touches, leave it, settle and a host of other useful tricks. Your puppy is never too young to start training, allowing you to bring up a well adjusted, happy, stimulated dog. A short burst of training and playing brain games also has the benefit of absolutely tiring a puppy out as Freddie so beautifully demonstrates here.
