Finally! – 6 weeks video
With some delay, finally here comes a video of my puppies at 6 weeks. I already have Week 7 video in the making and I must say that's my favorite week so far. I guess I can't out of my dog trainer addict skin as they just got TONS more fun today that was the first day I could feed them from my hand (they only ate minced meat and cottage cheese etc. so far) and it just made things even more fun - we can do some serious training now! 🙂 We also had first trip to agility field and it looks like they all love the tunnels just as much as their mother! Some real tunnel monsters coming up! - But that's for next video, so here is the delayed one first 🙂
hehe nice so cute 🙂 Is the video with sound? Because I hear no sounds on this video 🙁
Yes, sorry about that… I have to edit it without sound as they get crazy otherwise hearing my voice -- and then forgot about it and exported without… I didn’t notice at all until others told me…
Such happy pups!! 😀
Maureen -- how is your puppy doing?!?
Omi is doing just fine -- thanks for asking! 🙂 He’s a super-cool little boy, but soooo different from Hogan. Whereas Hogan loves his groceries, Omi doesn’t care whether he eats or not. He just wants to chase toys and tug. Hogan loves his tricks! Omi likes tricks, but loses interest/focus quickly. Even if he’s successful on the first try, he often leaves…..as if it stresses him, even when he gets lots of reinforcement. Our tricks training was interrupted by a long Christmas visit family in Montreal. When we got back I have to say I was discouraged that I couldn’t get Omi to share my love for tricks. I’d like to try again in the April class. Meanwhile we’ve been running and chasing and have started cik and cap while waiting for the Foundations class in May. Here’s what we did yesterday. 🙂
Wow, he sure is playing and running great!!! Maybe you can try to use a toy for tricks more as well! You can use it for most tricks that he knows to some degree already and for new tricks, you could use it for jackpots to keep his interest.
I’ll try that. Thanks, Silvia. We actually mostly use the toy for for cik and cap. I’ll try it for some of our other “partly-learned” tricks. 🙂
It’s funny -- when Omi’s breeder described him (before I ever met him) she said he liked treats but had no real interest in toys……LOL!!!
That is funny! And yes, for active tricks like cik&cap, spins, backing up, heeling etc., toy works great!!!
Gotta love those plastic bottles. My two poodles STILL think they are the “bomb”! All of them are too cute honestly but you do indeed have your hands full (of puppy love that is).
