Well, the new pup has settled in quickly. One of Pounce's "responsibilities" is to become a therapy puppy for our 4+ year old autistic Granddaughter.
This morning the three of us went to an ideal spot. A regularly mowed, long erosion strip in a 60 acre bean field provided natural barriers to eliminate the bolting tendencies of autism. Lylah and Pounce have "hit it off well" right from the start.
The coolest things was watching Lylah "solve" the puppy biting issue. Within one day Lylah was only presenting the upraised palms of her hands. This served to form a barrier the pup couldn't get a hold of. She could simply and gently fend the pup off. It was so simple, I never thought of doing that before.
Here's a few unique retriever training puppy photos with her "buddy". Pounce was ready for a long nap when we came home....Lylah not so much.
