Its Scary Being a Puppy

Reagan has been pretty brave about seeing and trying new things. She even went up and down our front steps and got in and out of a crate in the van. BUT tonight she discovered an offending paperweight on a bookshelf. It was lurking in the shadows..... no doubt about to pounce on her. Travis touched it with his nose, but she still wasn't sure if it was friend or foe. I guess we'll be incorporating it into some clicker training soon. That's the nice thing about teaching them to touch an object using the clicker. Generally, the hounds love learning how to make you "click" and "treat". Its a fun game and it makes them feel good about themselves. You can use it to your advantage later when you are investigating new things.
