I just wanted to let you know that we received the papers for Vincent yesterday. I also wanted to give you an update......
Since he didn't know his name, we decided to name him COOPER, and he has been responding well to the change.
We are crate training him and that is going extremely well. As far as we can tell he had to have some sort of training at some point in his life, because we had minimal issue with the crate the first night and he responded even better when we got him a bigger one.
We only had 1 accident in the house and it was on the first night and because I wasn't fast enough to get him outside, I missed the signs he was giving us...
He is fitting in very well with my husband and I (he is good with the boys, but they need to be more firm with him, they are still in the excitement mode, so Cooper is reading that as play time, not as "oh they are telling me something to do") and responding well to the comings and goings of us and the kids.
We've been working on basic commands like sit, down, stay, wait, etc. and that has been good, especially if you have a treat in your hand, otherwise it takes a little more effort, but I'm sure with more time we will get there. Well that's where we stand right now, hopefully this next week will be even better.
I've attached some pictures of him playing with his toys and playing tug of war with me and a video of him and my husband.
I'll be in touch.
Talk to you soon.
