The other day, I had a second training session with this adorable labradoodle puppy and his family. He laid patiently at their side while we began talking through solving the issues that come with bringing a young, energetic companion into their home with sharp teeth and an incomplete understanding of human household etiquette. (It is so awesome that their whole family is on board and eager to learn about training.)
It happens fairly frequently when I visit the homes of clients. I am greeted by very enthusiastic dogs who jump and jump and paw me to let me know I am welcome.
Does your dog run out the door the minute it opens? Does he charge the food bowl even before you put it on the floor? Does he sit when you ask him to, but immediately pop up and run through the house?
