The evening of March 7th Ron and I went out to run an errand. We returned with a brown box that I carried inside of a large plastic grocery bag. The bag was sat in the middle of the living room and we told the kids we picked up a surprise for them while we were out. They gathered around the box to open it together. As the flaps of the box were pulled back, a puppy's eyes were looking up at them.
The kids were shocked, but thrilled. Let's just say, Champ does not lack attention and love. He is a very playful little guy - he loves to chase the kids, chew on his toys, and snuggle in someone's lap.
I am proud of my kids for being so responsible to take care of their dog. They are doing a great job. Champ seems to be happy and I think he has fit into our family quite well.
Training a dog is new to me. Any tips for....
*teaching "stay", "sit", "come"
*any other helpful information
He is doing well on a couple of these. Other things I haven't even tried yet. Any advice, tips, or links would be appreciated.
