The wife and I got a puppy 6 weeks ago, he was ten weeks old. Brought him home, fed him, took him outside waited for him to pee, praised him ectra. He has never pooped or peed in the house, he has learned to fetch, sit, lie down, stay in the yard, stay out of the trash, come when called, knock on the door to get back in and lie down while we eat. So far he only barks when the DW gets him riled up. I dont think he is much in the way of watchdog/guard dog material as he shows no aggression or protective tendencies, although his size may someday be a factor in scaring folks off (lab/? mix). He plays well with our five year old twins. Although he has chewed a few things he seems to be fine left alone in the house unconfined. I think he is the perfect puppy in all respects but fear I may not be the perfect master. He wants to learn and having not had a dog in many years I really don't know what else to teach him. Any sugestions ideas?
