Say hello to Abby. 🙂 This sweet girl is the first puppy to be accepted into my new puppy program. 🙂 Over the next six weeks, she’ll be learning everything from obedience basics, to being calm in the car. She’s a very fearful girl, so building confidence and trust is crucial to her ability to live a happy life.
Our second meet-and-greet with Glimmer happens this Thursday [Oct. 13]. Abby arrives at my home on Sunday [Oct. 16]. Owner Cindy has chosen to have Abby home with her on the weekends to work with her. Consistency is very important; it helps create stability for the puppy, and it nurtures and reinforces the bonds of mutual trust and respect.
I’m excited to have Abby in my home for the next six weeks. I’m looking forward to seeing her come out of her shell and blossom into a happy, well-adjusted, calm dog. Owner Cindy will be watching her progress all the way, and working with her as often as possible. Stay tuned – and remember to stay calm and lead on. 🙂
