An update: Boogie’s stitches are now out and he is cone-free! I rescheduled his Obedience Training which will now start on Saturday 25th. next week.

Boogie also has a new plastic crate from Petco.

I haven’t started “crate-training” him yet…  Right now, he only goes in there to fetch his toys or the occasional treat. He doesn’t stay in there for any longer than 2 seconds. He still prefers to sleep in the usual places and what I might have to do is remove all other doggie cushions and beds from the living room so that the crate will seem more enticing.… (?)

The goal: to put Boogie in the crate when I go out so that my trash stays put, the cushions don’t get destroyed, and random things don’t get moved around. (I still come home sometimes to find a shoe on the couch or some object, like a pen, in Boogie’s bed… not chewed at all, mind you. Just ‘relocated’)

I am also looking forward to expanding Boogie’s vocabulary. So far, he only knows SIT, COME HERE (though he doesn’t always respond to this), KISS, DO YOU WANT A TREAT?, WHERE’S YOUR BALL? and YOGURT.

One command that he really really needs to learn pronto is  HEEL. 🙂
