Stan, the adorable 14 week old Jack Russell Terrier puppy had his first day at Doggy Day Care with Mind My Paws. His owners, Mark and Stef have had him for four weeks now and have trained him to perfection already! Amazing! Since they've had him, Mark has been at home with Stan training him which explains the impecible beahaviour. He has been well socialised, with both humans and other dogs, so he was quite happy to stay at ours for the day.
Mark and Stef briefed me on all his likes, dislikes, habits and routines. They packed his favourite toys, which he started playing with straight away.
When it came for walk time, on went his leash and he got very excited - until he realised it was raining. He looks up at me as if to say 'what you really expect me to go out in that???' Yes I said, so off we set. Over the next half hour, Stan 'sat' a lot with a determined look on his face. Walk over, he made it clear he was happier sitting on my lap! The second walk later on that day, when the sun was shining, went much better.
Stan is coming to Doggy Day Care next week for three days - I can't wait. He will also join me on a regular walk schedule. I'm looking forward to watching him grow.
