Freddy is rapidly becoming an adolescent. He is leggy, thinking about humping, showing signs of lifting his leg to mark, and is also showing signs of selective deafness. At the same time he is snuggly, sociable, mostly polite and often pure puppy. I am putting a lot of effort into recall training, ahead of adolescence hitting in earnest, and outdoor toilet training, ahead of visiting my sisters at Christmas. Pads work extremely well at home, where he knows exactly where they are, but were less successful while visiting at the weekend. Not everyone appreciates a pee and poo spot in every room! I've charted poo times over a few days and am aiming to get at least the daylight one outside within the week. He is a clever little chap - it shouldn't take him long.
