Have been trying a bit of shaping with Florin. My friend, Rosie, got us started about 10 days ago, the idea being is that she has to offer a behaviour in order to get a reward. We started with her showing any interest in the box, then it progressed to 1 foot in the box, then 2. 3 feet took her the longest to master and yesterday and today she has reliably offered all 4 feet in the box.

Alongside this she has started at trick training classes, which she is loving and is proving very keen to try. Whoopi is also benefiting from all this as she is getting lessons at home too, she is pretty good at (with a treat lure), sit, down and give a paw. We have also started box work and twists to the left and right.

Introducing Whoopi, the puppy I am keeping from Spirits litter :)

This is the last litter of puppies at Itzapromise for a little while, but life will be far from dull with two young dogs to bring on. Then there are the cats, Beetle is due a litter at the end of the month, so looking forward to a houseful of the naughtiest kittens soon.
