Puppy Energy


That is what my brain is thinking. Our Johnny Cash "Cash" has soooooooooooooooooo much energy. How will I ever keep up with him when Chelsee goes back to college. He is so sweet sometimes. But we can tell when he is getting tired for the night, because he gets naughty. So then it's to the bathroom outside..and kennel up. So far he has been really good about kenneling up for the night..not much fact hardly ever. Let's hope I didn't just jinx that by saying that. Some of Cash's favorite play things are:

Chewing on his little squeaky mouse

Chewing on "chewies"

Chewing on cardboard boxes

Chewing on small tree branches

Chewing on water bottles

Chewing on toys

Chewing on tennis balls

Are you noticing a theme here...Chew, Chew, chew...which we expected. I know puppies tend to chew...the next thing he likes is digging holes in my lawn. We will have fun filling in all the dips. Some are pretty deep, and Cash likes to bury his stash of "chewies" in them.

He also still likes to play in his blue wading pool, which helps keep him cooled off.

Chelsee has done a great job training him so far. He learned to let us know when he needed to go outdoors for "his business". He has learned to sit, lay down, roll over, and shake hands. We had trouble getting him to come when called. So Chelsee and I started playing hide and seek with him. I think that has improved his response greatly. Chelsee also taught him to go back up to the house when he is where he doesn't belong by saying loudly..and pointing...GO HOME. Works most of the time.

Cash had his Dr. Vet check up on Tuesday, he now weighs 20 lbs and received his Parvo/Distemper and Rabies shots. So I guess we are set for awhile. We also got him the Heartworm tablets. Definitely do not want him to get heartworm, awful looking what it does to the doggie heart.

So, any ideas on puppy training, let us know.
