Merry Christmas from the hounds! Wow it’s been a very long time since I’ve been on here. I lost motivation to keep this going unfortunately. Instead of beating myself up about it I decided to take a break and pursue some of the other things I have going on! Dog training classes have been going great and I’m learning so much. The special thing about the class I’m in is the focus on dog behavior, not just focusing on teaching a dog new tricks. We spend time figuring out why a dog acts a certain way and use what we know about dog behavior to tailor a plan for the owner and the dog. It’s exactly what I want to be doing!
Our hounds are all doing well. Kitty and Gunner are starting to come around to each other, Gunner a bit more than Kitty. We had a scare with Lily a week or so ago. We are assuming she fell outside and hurt her back which caused her to have some nerve issues in her back legs. She seems to have gotten much better!
We did buy a new house this summer and having a yard has been incredible! No more neighbors irritated with poor Gunner’s loud walking! He can stomp around as much as he want to now! Our fence is surrounded by houses with other dogs, and all of the dogs enjoy barking at each other. It’s been a bit of a challenge but I’m able to put my new training skills to the test with these goof balls!
We hope you are all having a great holiday season! Take some time and snuggle your fur babies because nothing is better than spending a little one on one time with your furry friends, especially in the winter!
