Guinness has grown so much! Here he is playing in the snow with his girl, Mercer.

Here are Guinness and Mercer on Thanksgiving! He looks so happy!

Guinness Goes Home

Guinness is very happy with his new family! Here are some pictures from the day he went home. I was very sad to see my little buddy go, but he was thrilled to have his new family! I will post some more pictures with Guinness and his new family soon- he has grown up quite a bit!

Training Progress

Guinness is doing so well! His stays are at about 45 seconds for sitting and 1 minute for downs. Not too far to go to the 1-minute and 3-minute mark! My friends and neighbors are so impressed with him because I let him out in the morning off lead, he goes to potty, and comes right back. Everyone is so surprised that he doesn't run off! I don't think it even crosses his mind though. Speaking of running off, he understands the "come" command perfectly and runs right back to me when I call him.

Very Late Post

Guinness is doing great on sitting, staying, coming, heeling, and downing! Almost got all of the major components of the CD down, we're starting classes soon though to finesse all of his skills!

I just thought I'd go over my training process a little bit...
I DO NOT use pinch collars or E-Collars for ANYTHING!
I am not clicker training Guinness because I prefer traditional training methods. Right now Guinness has learned "sit," "down" and "heel." His sits are beautiful!
Next we will be working on "stay" and "come."

Puppies that are sold with similar training sell for $3,500 to $5,000 depending on what age they are sold at. This cost covers the price of the puppy, the vet costs, board, training, and titling costs. Overall, buying a trained puppy saves lots of time and energy. No getting up in the middle of the night to take out a whining puppy, no barking in the crate, and no hours of training!
