Wow! That was fun.

I can't believe how fast puppyhood flew by.  Halle and I were on the fast track to a solid foundation that will last a lifetime. I found it challenging at times but always fun and exciting.


Looking back, I think the most important thing I taught Halle was that I can be fun!  I promised her that if you look at me, play with me, come to me, and stay with me that we will have a great time.  I incorporated games like tug, chase, hide and seek, and retrieving to make learning fun.  I taught her that she could use her brain and cleverness to figure out ways to get me to part with tastey treats, squeeky toys or even opening doors. For example, sit and you will get a piece of liver. Lay down and I will thorw that squeeky toy.  Look at me and I will open the door and let you chase the squirrel you've been eyeing.  It didn't take Halle long to actually figure out how I worked and to train me! She sure learned how to get what she wants and in turn I get what I want too (a well behaved dog who's focused on me).


Here's  a video recap of all the fun Halle and I had in our first year.  The most important thing to remember is that the learning and the fun never stops. We keeping playing, training and getting to know each other better every day.  http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=6vm0yfVrPBY



Sniff on! Train on! Come on!
