Max's Obedience Tricks

We're so proud of Max. He's learned his "sit", "down" & "rollover" pretty well. We are just starting to teach him to "stay". Under calm conditions, he listens to us pretty well. "Leave it" is a whole other story.... hehe

Max's first trip to Central Bark, our local dog park

We went to the dog park last friday. Max adapted really well to the environment and all the dogs sniffing his booty. He might have been a little overwhelmed, but we kept a good eye on him.
We brought Max to the dog park again on Sunday and a beagle did a little "ground n pound" on his ass...and john did NOT like that at all. He thinks we shouldn't bring him back until he gets a little bigger...even though Max thinks he's big enough.

Crate-Training Max

Max has started crate-training last tuesday and so far he's doing great. His crate is set out in the living room facing the tv with animal planet on. He's whining much less and is very comfortable in his crate. I hope he becomes potty trained in the next few months. I want to try the bell-training. That way, where ever he stays, he knows to ring the bell to go outside to potty. I'll probably start that shortly.

Max Meets Lola

I took Max for his first official playdate with my friend Michele's puggle Lola yesterday. Lola is 1 yr and 3 mos. old and they got along so well. They were non-stop playing the entire time we were there. We went to the nearby park and played in her house for about 2 hours. Max was so pooped afterwards during our drive home...i was a happy mommy. Too bad i have no photos of this event. I'll be sure to take some the next time we meet up for a play date.

A Fun Filled Weekend with Max

Here are some photos of Max last weekend when we took him to the green belt by John's house. He loved being outdoors.

The World Is My Chew Toy

Meet Max.  He's almost 11 weeks old.  He loves to chew, nip, bite, whine, poop and pee in all the wrong places, howl, jump and bite his leash when trying to be walked...but we love him anyways.

Lots of training, consistency, love & discipline needs to go into Max...and i mean, a lot.

When 10pm hits and he's all pooped out, he turns into an angel and becomes a snuggle bug.
