6 Months Old - Nettle

How did this happen?


  • Kruz – She likes to lay close to him on the bed, or in the yard.
  • Seeker’s Tail – Okay, she loves to play with Seeker too.
  • Chewing on things!  She likes the hard solid toys, that no one else does.
  • Eating!
  • Being outside.
  • Sleeping on the bed.
  • Splashing in the baby pool, or fish ‘tank’, whichever is available.
  • Chase games.
  • Dig in the dirt.
  • All people and dogs, even if they don’t like her.
 (Kruz 13 1/2 Yrs - Nettle 6 Months)

(Short Retrieve with Distraction = Seeker)


  • Being left in her crate during class nights. She can bark for 2+ hours straight, NOT PRETTY!
  • Not being the center of attention.


  • Bath
  • Nail grinding
  • Bee-Bops – banding her bangs.
  • Jumping up on grooming table – from chair.
  • The Vet.

  • Tugging (would like this to be in the love category)
  • Going for car rides.
 Naughtiness –

  • Jumps on counters and now twice on the kitchen table.
  • Jumps up on people.
  • Mouthing hands.
 Experiences –

  • She’s been to a couple agility trials, (visiting), and while there, worked on ‘holding position’, and tugging.  Not running agility of course! Played some retrieve games outside. 
  • Spent a few nights in a hotel. 

Behaviors – at various levels of ‘proficiency'

  • Puppy Grid Jumps
  • 2o2o – on board
  • Pivot on board
  • Hug a pole
  • “It’s Yer Choice”
  • Bang teeter board.
  • Skateboard
  • Crate Games – all levels
  • Give a Kiss.
  • Spin in a circle
  • “Dig’ around a jump upright – turning tight
  • Swim – going again today, it’s so nice.
  • Short retrieves to hand.
  • Come when called – still a work in progress.
  • Walk nicely with head halter on.
  • Great strangers appropriately (instead of jumping up on them)
  • Attention to me, with various levels of distraction.

So much more to learn!
