Playing with Harley in the garden – Arthur’s favourite hobby.

Week 19

Back to work for Lucy, so Arthur has been spending lots of time with Scott and chasing Harley round the pond.

Sit is now pretty solid, and down is coming along well.  We’re doing 10 mins of cllicker training with Harley and Arthur together.

Arthur has started climbing the stairs on his own – though he knows he’s not supposed to go up on his own – but likes to go anyway and explore. We’re trying to restrict him to once per day.

No accidents in the house this week, he is barking at the kitchen door to go out.  Plus this week has come and sat beside us and barked to say he wants to go out.

Week 17

 A wet and windy week.

Arthur joined his first group walk down by the Thames and walked off-leash for the first time with a saluki and cocker spaniel. Naturally stayed close – to Scott and Harley.  Didn’t manage to take any photos unfortunately, too busy watching the dogs, the ducks and the river.

Scott has continued this on our local heathland – keeping Harley on leash and Arthur off, and has had no problems at all.

Also he’s now exploring in the garden on his own – has learned not to put his feet in the pond, and loves to chase Harley in circles around it – though he soon stops and lets her do all the running, just jumping at her as she passes.  Harley has now learnt to hurdle him as she runs past, because he’s too slow to get out of the way.

Started puppy classes – clicker training – soon learned how to work for food and wouldn’t take his eyes off Scott – except when the trainer was talking.  They were impressed with how he already knew sit and down.

Visited the vet’s for his 4 month nurse check – mostly for a weigh in , and to play with the nurses and show off his training.  Now 12.1 kg.

Arthur has established his spot on the sofa without a doubt and can now get off with minimal assistance – and has tried to launch himself onto the sofa – but hasn’t quite made it yet.
