Well it has been about six months since I posted about Miss Beso and Miss Baci, and oh how things have changed.
One big lesson I have learnt with training a puppy is a lot of it comes down to your confidence.
Baci is now standing up for herself a lot more, even though Beso begs her to play.
They have a lovely routine, a walk together in the morning and then a run in the park in the afternoon.
One of the most gorgeous things they do each day is give each other little kisses, before they go running in the back garden.
Beso completed her puppy school with flying colours, and I can not recommend doing this with your puppy highly enough. It teaches you the basics and how to communicate with your dog and how to get them listening to you. We did a four week course. Beso learnt to sit, drop, stay, come, look, drop, stand, and much more and has really helped with her training at home. We used Training Wheels as I live in Daylesford and Colleen was just wonderful.
Besos graduation coincided with her first clip so she looked all smart for the occasion.
Beso and Baci still love playing together and it has become a morning ritual in our household.
Christmas was fantastic for little Beso she was so excited about all the food especially the ham. When I took out the ham to bake she stood up on two legs sniffing the air. And then went loopy.
Both the girls got Christmas presents, both new bowls Beso a special go slow bowl to slow down her eating which is proving to work and harness each. But the big present was Beso got to go off lead at the dog park for the first time and boy oh boy did she fly.
So into January we had a few really hot days coming and so I got Miss Baci clipped right back, she is pretty good in the heat.
But Beso hates the heat so I got her a cooling mat which arrived on the morning it was going to be 42 degrees and as soon as I unpacked it she was straight on it.
Its been so lovely watching these girls bond and now Baci is settling back into her own routine and not always playing. But Beso gives it a good try.
We all wish you and your puppies a very happy new year, and may it be filled with lots of walks, bones and cuddles.
