Amazing! I have a Grimm brag!

After a (typically too)wildly enthusiastic greeting of buckin' an' snortin', fartin' an' cavortin'...

Grimm, at age 19 months, for the very first time ever.........

stayed off-leash with guests and behaved himself politely for 5 hours!!

In fact, the greeting was challenging for Grimm, because in the couple that came to visit us, the man enthusiasticly vigorously rubs/franticly buffs Grimm, hyping him up that way-- instead of calmly stroking him.

But for the entire remainder of the 5 hour visit, Grimm controlled himself pretty well! He kept finding a nice place to lay down and be near the group. I cannot believe he can do that now! Not totally trustworthy, I think he would feed off the crazy energy of a guest who got too expressive/energetic-- but with calm guests, he so far is doing great! This was his first time. Only one jumping up incident (the man...) and no others! YEAH!! It's a beginning.
He is learning to settle and control himself a bit around guests... YIPPIEE!!!

Yeah Grimm! Time for a party!
Patti that is great. Grimm will become the dog you want, he just needs your guidance and some time to mature. For Grimm being a goofy fun loving pup was way more fun that being a well behaved pup.

Oh, that's too funny...
Way to go, Grimm!!
No matter how many pups I have, the excitement that comes with seeing them learn and react - seeing them "get it" - will never wear off.

Good boy Grimm, Brother Jero needs to take lessons from you. LOL.
What Chuck, you can't release Jero into a room of 4 people with guests?
"Wahoooo, people! Pet me! No, watch me ZOOM! No, pet me!" (Grimm still has a lot of that in him, too
) Seriously, Jero will get there. He has you for a handler now, he is a VERY lucky dog. Jero simply needs some time. He has the best, caring, dog-savvy owners possible now!
