There are a lot of puppy mills in West Point, IA
The area Vizlsa rescue is who I would reach out to.
They probably know her better than they would like too.

That is where Charlie come from. Since Charlie was at the pet store for 7 weeks the price was $699. Plus all his shots are done and we got a free visit to the local vet. I have to resize the picture and i will put them up.

On a side note... We were at the pet store to price out food, toys, etc.. We know a breeder for goldens and was going to get one in April. But that day we came home with him.
Hello,

I realize this is an old post, but I am hoping to reach out to you about your experience with breeder Maureen Moeller. Please reply.

Begin the heel training by shuffling along the kitchen floor on your knees with the pup and playfully encouraging him along. There are a zillion variations to these games, but the key is understanding that you are creating a picture in his mind. Each picture becomes a series of pictures and over time he puts the pictures together in a sequence that is a patterned response. When it clicks, in year or so, it's incredible. A light just turns on in their eyes, and "they get it".
Training for a bird dog starts on day one.
The first few weeks though, he does nothing wrong. Every success, no matter how small, or brief has to become the biggest thing in the world. Every failure is ended with a laugh, some playtime and affection. Design the games to ensure his success, and never end on a bad note.
Post of the year. Love your work.

Re: Pet store puppy

Oh and just wanted to note that Before You Get your Puppy and After you Get your Puppy by Ian Dunbar are available as free pdfs - just google. Dunbar has a lot of great advice on socializing and basic tricks.

Oh and also, enroll in a puppy preschool where he can be around other dogs and people! Take him to stores that are dog friendly. I think you have a Lowes Home store there..they are dog friendly. I had Kiya there the day after I got her @ 7 weeks...she got more attention from all kinds of people than I could have ever asked for!

Ok I'm done, I think!

Re: Pet store puppy

Agree with MilesMom. Get Ian Dunbar's book Before and After getting your Puppy. Personally I found that to be an all around good read. Also 101 Dog Tricks by Kyra Sundance - she covers the basic stuff and advance tricks. I taught Kiya to sit, down, crawl, shake and High five in a week. They are very eager to learn at the young age...take advantage of that now!

BJM...

Walk him... doesn't look like the boy had a chance to stretch his legs for a while, been sitting in the showroom window waiting for you ... maybe you can start with that ... short trips every day a little longer.
