Trek is now 5 months old. He is a sweet, calm puppy and we have enjoyed having him in our home. He no longer fits through the cat door (the cats are relieved) and he enjoys playing with our pet dog Maui and PADS dog in-training Russet. I think having a pack has helped Trek learn the household routines and gain confidence. He has mastered Sit, Kennel, Better Go Now (toileting), and Go Say Hi (short greeting). Trek also got to meet Santa this month when we had a photo session for pets at my work.

At Zoom puppy class, we have been looking at why dogs bark and coming up with strategies to address this behaviour. Trek barked a bit when he first came home, but he hasn’t done it since.
