We have had Tiggy in our home with our other two dogs (one medium and one small) and she has done nothing but love and play with them with all her heart. She even gets the cat playing along from time to time which is out of character. She is great with kids and is very well behaved. When she does play with her teeth it is a soft play that can quickly stop with an “ah-ah”. She aims to place so those two little syllables can quickly stop her from doing just about anything! Our other two dogs bark when people come to the door, and she has not followed suit which has been amazing. We are working on bell training at the back door to go outside and while she still has the very odd accident (always #1) she is learning quickly and will ring the bell to go outside. We do make her go out as soon as she wakes up and any other opportune time but the in-betweens, she sorts out herself! She is great in the car and hasn’t had her second shots yet, so she goes between our home and our farm to run free. We have not done any leash training with her but I’m assuming she will pick it up like everything else she attempts!
We are working on crate training. She sleeps in her crate at night and while we are away from the house. She goes in on command with a bit of an extra push. If we haven’t played her out completely, she will cry a bit after we have all walked away but that usually stops quickly. If I HAD to find a down-fall I would have to push for that one. She’s such a great little pup.
