4/15/21 FOSTER UPDATE: Punkin has started to settle in! She hasn’t had any incidents as far as chewing or tearing up things she shouldn’t since she arrived. I added a blanket to her crate, which has seemed to improve the time it takes her to settle (from about 20 minutes to less than 5). She LOVES squeaky toys. She plays fetch pretty well and has started to understand “drop it”, but it’s still a work in progress. She’s eating well, and doesn’t beg much or try to go after human food within her reach while I eat dinner.
4/13/21 FOSTER UPDATE: I’ve only had Punkin for about 4 hours now, but wanted to share what I’ve learned about her thus far.
Starting with the good: Punkin travels well in the car. She’s food motivated, which will help with training! She seems to know “Sit”, “Down”, “Off”, “Come”, and “Stay” (though still working on these!) She takes cues from the male dog in my pack, and is doing pretty well on a leash with some guidance.
