Toby fka Vixen is adapting very well. He is housebroken already. He goes to the door now when he has to go out. He is kennel/crate trained for when we aren’t home and through the night. He no longer uses the puppy pads. I still place them in the crate with him only for precaution, but he hasn’t had to use them for a couple of weeks now. If he has to go out during the night, he barks and I get up to let him out. Yes, sometimes in the middle of the night, but it is worth him being potty trained. Toby is a very quick learner. He already knows sit, shake, lay down, stay, high-five. He fetches a ball and brings it back. He understands when he he is told no. I am very pleased with his training abilities.
I love that he plays well. I have plenty of teething toys for him during this teething stage of his life. We keep him focused on those toys specific to chewing when he tries to chew fingers or something he shouldn’t . He is learning well with doing that. He is also quite the cuddler. he enjoys sitting with us. he is also good at self-entertaining. He will go pick up his toys and just lay or play with them all on his own. We very much are enjoying having him in our lives.
Toby was adopted in December 2021.
