Calm, Quiet Puppies

We couldn't have fit any more cuteness into today's schedule if we tried. I love sitting in on the Preschool Private Consultations and there were TWO this morning. One of the things covered in the consultation is the Long Down exercise. This is the single most important thing we teach dogs at Applewoods, and it is the first thing covered in all of our training programs. Everyone wants to teach their puppies to settle, right? 

This Great Pyreness puppy, and a Bulldog puppy both got a good head start with this exercise. We used to call this the Sit-On-Your-Dog exercise, and it still slips out every once in a while. What's the problem with that name? We didn't want people to think they should literally sit ON their dogs.
