I have my new puppy. His name is Ridley and he's 9 months old. We bought him from the breeder/trainer where he was living in a kennel with other working dogs that she's raising. Until last night, he had never been inside a house. He knows basic obedience and is very well mannered and so far things are going well. He's not too thrilled with the crate but we're working on it with lots of treats and positive reinforcement. He did fine overnight - not a peep out of him until it was time for us to be up anyway. Housebreaking is also going well - he's apparently got great control! His first few trips up and down the stairs were funny - he was literally stretched out as far as he could stretch because he couldn't figure out how to move his hind feet up a stair. Anyway, my only concern is that he doesn't seem to know how to play. So far he hasn't shown any interest in toys or balls. Any suggestions?
