My newest puppies–Tuvok and Gretchen from my litter received their first training sessions today. They had to walk in the yard on a leash. They learned to walk so quickly, it was unbelievable. They had been wearing collars since six weeks of age, but today was the first time they had a leash attached to their collar AND walk in the garden.
Gretchen is quite food-and-people oriented. She kept checking in with me while we were outside, and took treats from me. Tuvok, on the other hand, was Mr. Independent. He rarely gave me eye contact, and was not in the least bit interested in the bits of cheese I had to offer.
