Leo vs Potty Training Pt. 3

Leo vs Potty Training Pt. 3

At what point can I say Leo is housebroken? The week I posted the Leo vs Potty Training Pt. 2 article, Leo was on his 3rd consecutive week with a potty accident. The weeks before that, he didn’t have an accident for about a month, and since the article was posted he had one potty accident, which happened about 6 weeks ago. In the past few weeks, we have given Leo more […]

Leo Graduated!

Leo Graduated!

*cue the graduation song* I am proud to announce that, through hard work and intense late night study sessions, Leo has successfully passed and graduated from puppy class! I’m so happy we did a puppy training class. It was definitely worth the money. Not only was it fun, but we learned a lot. In addition to “sit”, “down”, and “come”, we were able to teach Leo “leave it” and loose-leash walking. […]

Leo’s Allergic Reaction

Leo’s Allergic Reaction

One morning this week, Leo scared the daylights out of us. The night before he was totally normal, and when we woke up to take him out the next morning, both of his eyes were swollen almost completely shut. It was terrifying to see him like that. He was breathing fine and acting normal, but his eyes were just SO puffy. The vet’s office didn’t open for at least another […]

Leo the Office Dog

Leo the Office Dog

Leo goes to work every day and he absolutely loves it! In fact, Leo has been coming to work with me since we brought him home. The ability to bring him to work was one of the reasons we decided it was a good time to get a puppy because I would be able to watch him closely and take him out for potty breaks when needed. At first, I […]

Leo Eats Everything

Leo Eats Everything

In Leo’s mind, and I’m assuming most dog’s minds, everything on the ground is fair game. If food is ever dropped to the ground, it’s a race between Leo and I. I hate to admit that I don’t always win that race. Sometimes he’s super stealthy (or I’m just super slow) and snags whatever it is before I can even glance down. Licking his lips is the only evidence of […]

Leo Sheds

Leo Sheds

I knew this was coming. I knew when committing to Leo, there was going to be shedding. When he first came home, he rarely shed. Now it’s a totally different story. Wow, did I not realize how much hair could leave his little body at any given time. I swear, wherever Leo walks, he leaves a trail of floating hair fluffies in his wake. As a result, I’m definitely giving […]

Leo Goes to Puppy Class

Leo Goes to Puppy Class

Before we got Leo, I knew I wanted to take him to puppy class to train him the basics and have another opportunity to socialize him. In reality, I’m the real student here.  Other than the articles I’ve read, I have no idea how to raise a well-mannered puppy. Our vet told us to wait until Leo was at least 4 months old to start a puppy class because if […]
