Today is Stanley's 3rd birthday! My puppy is now an adult. People ask me all the time, "When will my puppy grow up?" And my answer is, "Sooner than you think!" What they really want to know is when they can expect their puppy to stop doing doggie things and "behave". And the truth of the matter is that age is only one contributing factor to overall behavior. I have spent these first three years laying a foundation of behaviors that will be with him his whole life. What are the building blocks of this foundation? Trust. Love. Learning. Impulse Control. A job. A Relationship. These are the foundations of a great dog.
I have been working with dogs for over 14 years. I have three dogs-Maverick, Jasper, & Stanley.
