Welll I hit an interesting milestone last night!
My puppy (A 2 1/2 year old German Sheperd) came to live with me.
This was his first time ever on the boat so, I was a bit apprehensive about it.
And since he has not had a a lot of structure in the last few months and started to believe he was Alpha dog, I decided to have been get bootcamp training with two friends of mine who run a dog training company (www.thedogsavant.com). So I dropped him off last week for the first part of training bootcamp. And Pascale and Michael did miracle work!
And they dropped him off on the boat last night. And I have to say, it has been a extremly positive experience sofar!
He came down the stairs pretty much by himself after 5 or so minutes, and he has started working on going up the stairs by himself as well. A few more days of that and he should able to do it by himself.
Here is a picture I took this morning of him, it looks like he made the boat his own!
And he crawled up into the bed with me, snuggled right up and fell asleep till 9 am this morning. So I took him for an hour walk, saw many distraction. Joggers, other dogs and seagulls and he really did not care much. The amount of new stuff he has been processing has been very high in the last day. But he is doing amazing.
So as we came back, he had some water, and crawled right back into bed and went to sleep!
There have been many changes in my life in the last few months, and this is one of the most positive ones!
I missed the furry little bugger!
