One of the keys to puppy training is to teach your puppy that it is important to have patience and wait at feeding time. In this video, Jarvis, my twelve-week-old Labradane puppy, demonstrates how even a young puppy can have self control. It is never too early to start training your puppy about obedience and good behavior.
Stay tuned for future blog posts about tips and tricks to train your puppy to stay and wait. In the meantime, you can also see another example I posted about training a puppy to stay and come.
P.S. Of course the ever obedient Gatsby has a background cameo in this video. He never ceases to amaze me, and he is the most amazing role model for little Jarvis.
On Saturday, May 25th I brought home an energetic new puppy to join our family. Jarvis has quickly settled into his new life with Ryan, Gatsby, Dr. Seuss, Joe, Mr. Moore, Zoey, Rory, and me, and the whole process has really made me miss all the times I got the privilege of helping my Get Pet clients with their new dogs. A couple evenings ago I tortured Ryan by reading several of my old blog posts about puppy training to him, but being the ever-supportive boyfriend, it resulted in him encouraging me to start blogging again - so here I am.
Selling Get Pet was one of the hardest decisions I ever had to make, and having Jarvis around has reminded me why the decision was so hard. It brings me so much joy to watch this little guy learn and adapt, and I am always so proud of Gatsby's ability to appropriately interact with every dog he encounters. He truly is the reason that Get Pet was a success, and he immediately helped Ryan and me get Jarvis started in the right direction.
Since the puppy training is so close to home this time, I thought I will focus on Jarvis' development over the next few months here on the blog, and I hope my stories and experiences can be a resource to you from one dog parent to another.

Growing up in the country in Pennsylvania gave me tons of experience with animals from a very early age. I later pursued a career in horseback riding and also have experience as a veterinary technician. I have a strong passion for animals and have an uncanny ability to connect with all sorts of furry friends.
