Let’s face it, these unusual times of COVID-19 are stressful. They are full of boredom, stress, chaos and uncertainty. What better time to raise a puppy than right now when there is so much time to dedicate to them? They are cuddly, amusing, a welcome distraction and something to do instead of binge watch Tiger King again and again.
The past 4 months have been ripe with new puppy owners. Believe it or not, they can be shaped, taught, trained and develop into nice adult dogs with virtual sessions. Mouthing, leash walking, manners and impulse control are not difficult to address during an online 1-on-1 session. I am proud to say that via Factime, Zoom or Skype sessions many of these puppies are becoming very nice adult dogs at this point!
