Calla and Julia

We’re still loving every moment with Calla (Hummel x Pakros C-Litter) and she continues to be such a great match for our family. She has matured into such an affectionate and fun girl. We can’t say enough good things about what an awesome dog Calla is and we look forward to adding another dog to our family.
I thought you would get a kick out of this pic from Calla’s recent vet check-up. Calla copied Julia by hopping into the chair, then Julia copied Calla’s tongue hanging out. Silly girls + best buddies!

Four-Generations if You Count the Puppy

W-Litter Hunter x Karma pup goes home to Michaels home in Midland, MI.  Keith reported that first day home they worked on:  Come, Sit, Down, Back, & Settle.

The second day this is Keith’s email:

She will do nice puppy sits and downs. She and Ilea ( female from Ricco x Allie)  are playing good together. She is doing the steps and coming when called when interested in a distraction. House is still dry because she asks to go out. So you trained her all ready for me. She checked out fine at my vet (giving kisses) and is 20.6 pounds on his scale. She got her Kennel cough vaccines today and will repeat the others in about three weeks. I am very pleased with her (and your choice.)

I shared his email because I thought it would help give other new puppy people a little guideline on what to start with for training. They are sponges and ready to learn.  Keith is giving us too much credit… we do not house train the puppies before they leave, we set it up so that they learn to be as clean as possible.  Keith is simply very good at observing and understanding dog body language.
