Training: Puppy, Obedience, Agility
Posted May 31, 2017
Mille became a part of our family as a puppy and left her mother at an age of 8 weeks. Attentive to all sorts of sounds, impressions and all the surroundings, she nearly ran in front of a truck after two days and never felt comfortable again walking on our left side closest to the road. Obedience training was started immediately and the social aspect of it taught her to get on with other dogs easily. Having a big garden to play and my family all with her for the first two weeks home during our summer holiday, Mille became obedient enough to start agility and even participated in agility events. In comparison to our first dog (a Cairn Terrier), Mille required more space, a higher activity level, exercise and more food. Anyway, despite the cons of having a bigger and more challenging dog in terms of space, money and time, Mille became so obedient that the only time she stopped reacting was when she became partially deaf.
