Conner Settling In

Posted by gooddogdc on June 8, 2009 at 2:11 PM

As Conner has begun to settle into his new life, we are definitely starting to see a lot more of his personality coming out.  He is a young dog (my guess is that he is around 1, maybe a little older).  Conner, like most adolescent labs wants to put his mouth on everything.  So he would go best to a home that is familiar with mouthy breeds (like retrievers).  You can use that to your advantage though because if you ever want to keep him entertained for awhile, just give him a rawhide.  He loves nothing more than a good chew!  However, "puppy proofing" the areas that he will have access to is a must.  Conner does still respond quite well to an "eh, eh" if he is doing something that he is not supposed to. 


He is also still doing very well with his obedience.  We are working on an extended down stay, which is a little hard for him because he has so much curiosity and energy - but, I have no doubt he will figure it out by the end of the week, he is SO SMART!  Sit, down, and leave it are easy for him now.  He finally figured out the "crate" command (although, he still has a little more work to make it perfect).  "Wait" is another one that he is working on (we make both dogs "sit" and "wait" before any doors are opened).


We did have a little issue today, where he tried to ambush my 6 year old, 15 lb Corgi mix with a pounce.  She did NOT appreciate it.  Conner loves other dogs, and he loves to play.  Most of the time he is perfectly well mannered around her in the house.  However, occassionally, he tries to play with her "big dog style" and doesn't seem to understand the size difference.  Conner would probably do best in a medium-large dog household (which he would LOVE), or as an only dog (which he would also love, provided he got to go to the dog park once in awhile!).
