After a lot of discussion and some budgeting, we started taking the puppies to doggy daycare. They started last week and I think it was one of the best puppy parent decisions we’ve made so far. It wasn’t so much that I was worried about Luna, it was Tyr that I had some concerns with that I wanted to makes sure we got addressed. The doggy daycare helps us with a few things: training and socializing is the biggest reasons for taking him. Exercise was another one because Tyr has so much energy, he wears me out. I almost wish we had a kid that could wear him out for me periodically.
He’s a little terror and has good days and bad. Doesn’t like to be without us (some separation anxiety… a part of the breed), but he’s getting better when he realizes that we always come back. Eats like a horse. And loves chewing on his big sister Luna. Also, does not know what to think of Smudge since she sounds and moves differently and is most certainly not a dog.
