Amazing dogs. Incredible families. Training Success.
Meet our November All Star, Fred! Fred is a 13 week old Golden Retriever and newest member of the Post Family. The Posts are new dog owners and we thought it would be fun to follow them through their very first puppy class. Throughout the next 6 weeks, we’ll be chatting with The Posts about their class experience, Fred’s adorableness, kids and dogs and what it’s like to bring a puppy home for the first time.
If you’re looking at adding a puppy to your life, we hope you’ll learn a lot from their story and if you’re a veteran dog owner, let the sweet memories of “remember when” roll!
Meet The Posts! Jopp and Kelly wanted a dog that their kiddos, Phoebe (8) and Polly (6), could grow up with. With daughters old enough to help out and at a great age to develop skills to be responsible pet owners, the Posts brought home Fred on September 21, 2017.
Now, 13 weeks old, The Posts report that Fred is pretty much potty trained (AWESOME WORK!) and he loves playing and biting. One of their goals is to work on redirecting his biting to appropriate toys (one of our favorite topics in puppy class!)
In Fred’s first puppy class, he played nicely with the other puppies and the most important thing they learned was how to properly train a puppy with treats. The Posts are motivated to work on training at home because, as every puppy pawrent quickly learns, class is a very distracting environment! Since class on Monday, The Posts have taught Fred to manage the stairs in the house, thanks to tips from Trainer Jada. And, in true puppy spirit, Fred made a memorable exit from his first puppy class….by pooping, then stepping in it! Oh, the puppy life!
The Posts are eager to learn more about dog behavior and understanding how dogs learn and we’re looking forward to teaching them and watching Fred grow!
