How did I get so lucky!?!?!?
So, today is two weeks with my Teddy boy! He had a few accidents the first week on some of my rugs. Now, this second week he is completely bell trained! When I let him out of the xpen, I play with him for a minute to see what he does and he goes right over and rings the bell and goes outside to potty. He uses the wee pad in the xpen overnight. I tested him today around the rug he had been peed on in the past, which is by the front door (no bells), and he went to the front door and cried a tiny bit to be let out (he was never even trained to the front door).
Also, he doesn't bark or get over excited when I come home, he's so calm and independent, playing with all his toys. In fact, I havent heard him bark at all. Just a slight whine or grr when I get home and he wants out of the xpen or he wants something, up or down off the couch.
No chewing on the wrong thing, so far, either.
So, I am thinking I got pretty lucky with my pick of the litter! He's just been amazing. The only thing I feel badly about is that I have to leave him for work, but he has a lunch time walker.
One question though, I am going out of town fourth of july week and planning to leave him with my mom. She has a hav and a cock-a-poo, who are both pretty barky sometimes. Will my pup learn that being over there for a week?
