Abby Relaxing This Weekend

MA oct 7 20171

In the majority of pictures I post, you see Abby working, but does she ever take some time off?  Yes, she does and I have plenty of pictures to prove that.

See what I mean?  My girl works hard, but she also takes plenty of naps in her favorite bed.  Yes, she has a few beds.

Abby is relaxing this weekend and whenever she has friends over they follow her lead.  Of course, this is after we have taken a nice long walk.  Enjoy your weekend.

Raising Abby To Be A Balanced Dog

Abby, “Mom, why are they making so much noise?”

To say that I do my best to take Abby every place I can would be an understatement.  Here are some of the things I do with her:

  1. Since I hate with a passion going to the supermarket, while Cynthia goes shopping for groceries, Abby and I go to explore the neighborhood.
  2. Abby accompanies me to walk my clients’ dogs.  Hmm!  Let me rephrase that, Abby accompanies me to walk our clients’ dogs.
  3. I take her to different areas so she can see, hear, and smell a different environment other than the one around our apartment.
  4. Abby, in the near future, will be going with me on consultations, training and behavior modification sessions.

Abby, “Mom, I can’t find any treats in this area. How come?”

Abby has a long way to go when it comes to behavior modification for let’s remember that she is only a puppy, but I don’t want to wait until she is bigger, stronger, and a total pain in the neck.  She makes a lot of mistakes.  Way more than my Alex ever did, but as I tell pet parents over and over again, “Every dog is an individual and as such they learn at their own pace.”  I do like the improvement I see in her, but that took a lot of work and patience and we have a long road ahead of us, but that’s fine.

Abby, “Got to get my beauty sleep.”

After we get back home, Abby walks around the apartment for a couple of minutes, and since she doesn’t know how to stop – she hasn’t found her off button – I tell her to go to bed and within minutes, not seconds, she is out like a light.  What a hard working puppy I have.  Enjoy your week.
