Another late hello.
« on: April 04, 2021, 08:48:49 PM »
Hi everybody and Happy Easter!

After many months of research we collected our ECS pup a couple of days ago and are settling in to a very different routine. This forum has been enormously helpful and led us safely to a new chapter in our lives. Thank you for all the posts and the sharing of your experiences, we used your knowledge and checked everything we could. We have a beautiful, confident yet calm and permanently wagging tailed 8 week old who we are naming tonight.
What a lovely community this is.

Thank you.
John.

Hello and thanks for your lovely welcomes!

I hugely underestimated how lively/inquisitive a puppy is, we haven’t had time to name her and must tonight; time has flown, she has kept us both on our toes! I hadn’t planned to start training for a few days, thought she’d need ‘settle in ‘ time but I was wrong as she’s enjoying it. I hope we’re doing it right, she’s bouncy, tail wagging, snuggly when tired.
Cazza, Ash is beautiful, tonight’s not my turn for 3am peegate so I’m looking forward to reading how you’re getting on!

I’m so glad you’re all here, this is the best thing I’ve ever done but I’m a bit nervous at the same time!  :005:

Morning John, hope you enjoyed your non peegate night  :shades:

Ash goes to her crate at 10pm now and is let out again about 12.30am and sleeps through til 6.30am

We are slowly letting her out earlier - we started with her being let out every 2 hours and then slowly over 2 weeks have reduced it later this week will will try 12am and see if she can go to 6.30am without a mess in her crate.

Training wise - we have worked on sit, down, come and on lead in the garden. Have also taken her out in the car every 3 days if not every day. Have socialised her with cars / tractors / lorries going past. She has been to see horse, chickens and cows. Not done sheep yet as they are lambing

Ash got her second jag on Monday so looking forward to taking her out and being able to put her down while socialising her with all the above next and meeting some friends with dogs
