So it has been a week since Latte arrives, I am dead tired, but never been happier!
Since This page is not really active I will treat it as a diary that I can look back to one day.
I am an over thinker and tend to worry a lot, atm I worry whether I have been training him well.
Potty train Progress:
Perfect with peeing on pee pads BUT poop always misses the pad :(
*I think he got ear mites? Cleaned his ears and see if it comes back.
*On worm & on flea prevention
Commands He can already do:
*Look at Me
*Latte (his name, cue to look at me)
All these basic commands need to be taken a step further in different room and with distance.
Commands that need to further be reinforced:
*Follow me (Heel)
*Off (Stop jumping at people)
*Slow (Taking food from hand slowly, 80% there)
*To Stop him going for my hair
*Get him to follow me on leash (he will just sit there and plant his butt :(......)
Socialisation progress: Been having him listened to thunders, cats, fireworks and baby crying audio. Been letting him sniff my bunny and hold him back when he tried to jump. Seen man, woman come and go to our house. taking him out once hes fully vaccinated,
*He doesn't bark at vacuum
*He is somewhat okay with nail trim (Need to work on back leg)
*He is ok with being held, rolled over, belly up, eyelid check
*Need to work with the gum & ear checking
*Need to work at brushing his fur (He tries to chew on the brush)
*Need to work on tryin to lie down with the human
All in All he is a very good boy, I hope he will stay that way and not get too much into adolescent issue. Meanwhile all I can do is be prepared for anything that may arise.
Most importantly, lots of play, talking to him and pets to bond (and ofc with food too)
Feel free to comment/give me advice :D There is still a lot of socialiisation to do! whew!
