Great name for a pup by the way!I'm am enjoying Bailey's spirit more and more each day, he is such a character and i know will provide many smiles to come.
We have all been there! I was a zombie myself for a month or two The forum does help oh so much and it does get easier! Pretty soon you'll be sad puppyhood is over and start planning for a second V . Hang in there because the reward is so worth it. And try to enjoy it as much as you can - especially the zoomies - it doesn't last forever and believe me, you will actually miss it! (If only because you were so sleep deprived that you forget how much those puppy teeth hurt!)Bailey said:Like many on the forum we did our homework beforehand and knew it wasn't going to be easy and we are both quite active so wanted an energetic dog, but I really wasn't prepared for quite how hard it was going to be.
I have to say though that this forum (and this thread in particular) has been such an immense help and comfort. I really thought i was alone going through this experience and to know others out there have been there and survived it and to explain how it really is worth it in the end has given me much needed hope. I'm am enjoying Bailey's spirit more and more each day, he is such a character and I know will provide many smiles to come.
I remember reading this when we first got Ginger (now 3 months old) and we just experienced this for the first time and it's true! We had also heard that this breed will take the training and then 'sleep on it' with better results the next day.Ozkar said:The delight I take in seeing them finally click with something. That moment, when you see the look of enlightenment on the dogs face. Like they are telling you........ "Yeah.... I get it now...........you're right.....it's freaking huge fun doing it like that......"
