      turning a corner ?

      riggins has slept through the night for 2 in a row. he turned 12 weeks old yesterday. i feel like it's a milestone. the biting is getting better.....not gone but better. i wish i could attend some puppy classes, but they are all 100 miles away. not an option with the questionable weather this time of year. i know that would be a good thing for both of us. he is developing his personality and becoming quite vocal. he had a play day with a 3 year old golden yesterday that was very good for him, and tired him out.

      i'm feeling quite lucky with him overall......i told my wife the biting would be better when he loses his baby teeth. she said it may be today if he bites her again !!

      Good Riggins!

      Maybe someone can suggest some good online training videos and you could work at home. Positive reinforcement training is what you're looking for.

      Don't get your hopes up. Brook did the same at that age, then it was back to getting up at 4-5am. Even at 10 plus months, he wants up earlier than I do.

      lol.. I remember those days. It was like having kids again. Soon enough, they all sleep through the night but Libby gets up with my husband and always makes a point of waking me up too!
