Update on Watson

I just wanted to give a quick update on Watson. Hes gone from being an adorable clumsy little puppy into a giant clumsy pup but is a very good boy. He is a big part of the family here and absolutely adores kids. He picked up basic obedience very quickly and has mostly pretty good house manners though will sometimes still get the occasional zoomies episode in the house . Unfortunately he will soon be getting both of his hips replaced as he has hip dysplasia in both hips. If anyone has any suggestions for some mental exercises to help keep him at least mentally tired while he is recovering it would be appreciated. I've included an updated photo of him with Mem, Loki was just out of camera range watching for the oh so treacherous ups man. He now weighs in at a lean 91 lbs. Starting to wonder just how big hes going to end up once hes all done growing and filled out.

Ouch on the hip surgery.

Probably the best thing to keep him occupied and wear him out without physical exercise is nosework. This class https://www.fenzidogsportsacademy.co.../courses/13342 starts on August 1st, and enrollment runs through the 15th. If you are on Facebook, there is a student group with a Teaching Assistant to help the auditing level students. She got into nosework when her Rottie bitch needed a TPLO, and got they hooked on it.

I currently have The Foundation of nosework with Andrew Ramsey and have started just the beginning basics of nosework with him. I will look into the class as well. He is very food motivated and tends to pick stuff up quickly but still seems to have a short attention span at times. He can also be easily distracted, especially by the neighbors little fluffy unruly dogs. Who I'm still trying to convince that their little dogs do in fact need leashes even though they are tiny. They have stated that the dogs are to small for leashes...
