Will my dog stay this way?
I have a pup that is almost 6 months. She is great. She loves everyone she meets man women child old young. It dose not matter she loves everyone. She greets everyone now with a sit she has good manners that did not take long to train.
She loves meeting new dogs. She has great manner going up to them in a friendly way sniffing and then I can call her off. She is great. There are a few times when she will react to dogs. Like if with the pack. I have 2 other dogs one of them can be a little yappy jerk. If he goes off she will too. The other time is if she is behind the fence but this seems to also be brought on by the little dog. I have been taking cookie the pup on walks alone to work on traing that socializing.
So my question is if I keep socializing her and training she should stay this great right? I honestly have never raised a pup of my own. I have always had older dogs with problems I have had to fix. I have raised foster pups for a month or 2. Now I want too keep my pup from picking up any bad habits.
I also am doing positive reinforcement training only and lots of it. She is picking things up so fast. I know how to train a dog just never had my own puppy and so far she is almost perfect. I just hope she stays this way.
Any tips to keeping my dog on the right track? If I just keep doing what I'm doing will she stay this way? I have had so much dog experience. Just never had a pup of my own. I feel silly asking this.
