Oh Kenny, you just kill me sometimes--I know if you think about it you'll remember that I'm the one that doesn't accept Dobersharking. It's never taken me more than a couple of weeks to convince puppies that their teeth (or for that matter their open mouth) should ever, EVER, touch human skin--especially mine.
His potty training though is pretty complete--if you know his signals he'll let you know when he has to go out to pee and I discovered yesterday that if I don't get that he needs to go out to poop--he barks at you (at least he barked at me. He makes it through an 8 hour night just fine.
The first night he had a full blown melt down hissy fit (his crate is beside my bed)--it lasted for all of 3 minutes and then he went to sleep--I got him up at 10 to go putty and put him back in his crate--he sighed heavily once and went to sleep.
And I've since discovered that what he wants to do after both breakfast and dinner is take a nap. Feed him, go back to bed with him loose in the bedroom and about 5 minutes later he climbs into his crate and goes to sleep.
He also already knows how to bark at and chase the squirrels out of the yard--man, a dog after my own heart.
He's here with me in the room with the computer--Leon just came in and quivering with his attempt not to play bow at or on Leon he earned several "Good dog Joey's" and a small treat.
Progress is being made...
His owner/mom is pretty fond of this puppy (justifiably so--he's pretty cute and tries very hard to be good) I think the only thing that would keep him from going back home would be if the first Dobe (an intact male. Toad's nephew--Elvis, now 8 decided not to accept him.)
