I'm a proud puppy mom!

Stark is 15 weeks old today, and he has come so far since the day I brought him home. I never thought the puppy biting would get better and I thought he would never be housetrained. But, I think we're doing alright now . First of all, I've been crating him in the jeep from the day we brought him home and we went on car rides almost everyday. I tried it without the crate a few days ago, and we've gone two days with him uncrated in the jeep. He lays down or sits quietly in the backseat the whole ride, even if I hop out to pump gas. He has been taught to be nice to small dogs, he just plays too rough and he doesnt realize it. So, my younger brother tells me he is afraid of the neighbor dogs (two ****zus) and I thought that was odd. So, when I saw them out again I brought Stark out to see what he would do... he lays down nicely and licks them and wags his tail. He is playing nice with them, becasue theyre small! My brother thought he was afraid of them because he has seen Stark play with big dogs and he plays rough. And, we went for a walk tonight, absolutely no pulling on the leash. I have been praising and treating him for being at my heel when we walk, I havent incorporated a command yet but Im trying to teach him thats the place he wants to be. He stayed almost perfectly at my heel the whole time. Then we came home and did some training, he learned to shake in about 10 minutes. I am such a proud puppy mom right now. He has got a long ways to go, but we are on the right path!

Oh my gosh, when Poppy occasionally gets some of her tricks on the first try, like Stark and "Shake" it's like the best feeling in the world. Keep it up!
