A big welcome to our new family member, Kody! After years of being a cat only household, a dog is a big challenge. But a good one.
Kody is an older rescue, a Bernese Mountain Dog mix, from our local animal shelter. It’s only been a few days, but there’s a lot of love going on. And a lot of mad reading about dog behavior and training. 🙂
How are the cats adjusting? Molly’s traumatized, the other two could care less. Everyone’s being kept apart while training continue (and Kody will remain on a leash during continued training).
Kody’s great company while reskeining yarn in the shop up the hill (our property is on a steady grade – it’s a hike to skein yarn!). I think he’s pretty happy to be here – what a nice change from his concrete and steel cage, right?
Do you have a dog/dogs? What’s your best piece of training advice?
