They have just had their second meal, a good wrestle with Poppy and Toffee and are shattered. Tomorrow they start to leave for their new life.
There are a few excited families out there and I wish them well and hope their experience with their puppy is a good one. Above all else I hope they have fun as owning a well trained dog is so rewarding.
I am always at the end of the phone or email should they run into difficulties but as long as they are firm and teach the puppy the rules from a very early age they should all do well.
Puppies are like children in that they thrive well if they have boundaries which are clear and consistent.
There will be days when you wonder why you got the puppy, but the next day it will remind you.
We just can't put our children in a crate!
