Let's start a thread about awesome stuff our pups have done lately. Some positive energy to compliment all the questions and difficulties people post here :)

I'm going first ;)

Today we went to a friend's house for the afternoon. My friend gated off the living room and kitchen for Comet so we could keep an eye on him better. Comet, our 3 month old collie, was awesome - he slept, sniffed around and best of all - came to me and whined when he had to go out to pee and poop. Not a single accident, even in a strange house. In fact, we've had him less than a month and it's been a week since his last accident. Yippee!

Great idea! My puppy Moose finally realized that whining at night will get him nowhere, so now he is quiet from bedtime to morning time! It takes a few nights (or more) folks, but it does get better!

I like this thread :p

I've recently decided to start training my rescued dog. In just 2 weeks she sits, stays (even when a ball is thrown) and heels. Heeling is the most recent, started working on that on maybe wednesday... and by yesterday she wasn't pulling on the leash!

I brought Waldo to the vet yesterday. He noticed that he knew how to sit and lay down, so he decided to teach me how to make him stay. Well he was showing me, Waldo didn't know what to do to get the treat, so he cycled through every trick he knew (sit and down). So here he is going up and down and up and down trying to get the treat. Vet said it was the funniest thing he had ever seen. (I love my dorky pup!)

That sounds a lot like Trent! I was trying to teach him to "give paw" (shake), and he got so confused, he sat, and then laid down, and then sat, and gave up and looked at me with pitiful eyes. So I ended up telling him to sit and giving him the treat. I decided to teach that one later :p

More brags about Trent: He has "go potty" down quite solidly, and sometimes actually tries to pee when I tell him "go potty", even when his bladder is apparently empty! When we lead him to his crate, he will go inside and sit down and wait for us to lock the door, his bites are becoming much much softer, and he is starting to learn "leave it" and "give it" (he listens about half the time). When he got his second set of shots (a few days ago) he was fantastic and didn't even seem to notice what was going on.

I'm so proud of him! :D
