It does! And the fact that I’m not quite that filled with puppy fever (yet). :)

Later, three of the little convicts were looking for a jail break again...

You have to appreciate their spunk and tenacity 😜! Do tell on the clicker lesson...how did you use it and did they respond as expected? We’re some pups more responsive than others?

I know your husband has been sort of a convert to dogs, I’m curious about his perspective on all of this puppy business!

At this stage you are just “charging the clicker”... creating a “conditioned emotional response” to the clicker. So there really is no “wrong” response the puppy can make. If they had not liked my choice of food, I would have tried a different food. If they had worried about the clicker I would have switched to a quieter clicker. (Maybe... maybe I would have tried to work through it depending on their response) But the goal right now is for them to feel happy when they hear the clicker. So the bar is REALLY low!

The tube was full of chicken baby food, which they thought was EXTREMELY yummy, so it was all a great game for them! LOL! The goal of all training I do is for the dog to think it is all fun and games!

He has pulled out a towel for himself, and will randomly pick a puppy for cuddle time. It’s pretty cute. It’s like he’s trying them on for size!

Well, your all fun and games 'conditioned emotional response' technique is certainly working on the members of HF with your puppy pictures! Who do you think are easier to train, Havanese puppies or HF members? DON'T ANSWER THAT! 🙉

Oh gosh I've missed so much! I haven't been online for a few days. Just got to do some outside gardening and inside house cleaning at some point! Now I'm trying to get caught up on the forum and I can't believe the change in the puppies in just a few days! Still luv Ducky and the Bean! But I also luv the other two as well.

Karen, have you decided who you're keeping yet? You don't have to tell us who it is, but I'm wondering if you've decided. Thanks!

No, I won’t make a decision until after evaluations at 7 & 8 weeks.
