Settling In

We had a good weekend with Cooper. He enjoyed having the whole family around and we used the techniques that we learned in training on Friday and we can see a big difference. We are still keeping him contained, but I can take him around the house with me without him marking everything.

We got our backyard cleaned up and safe for the dog. Our neighbor put in a new fence last year so there was some gaps left where the old fence was. We filled in these gaps and the yard is now safe for Cooper to run around in. He wants us out there with him, in particular either Eric or I.

We have our first vet appointment today.

Cooper also has his own profile at YouPet. Click here to join and become friends with Cooper.

Here is a photo & video we took yesterday~


  1. Looks like you got quite the active pooch. But it seems like he is doing better every day.
    On peice of advice and this is just from my experiance with an active dog, Toby tends to pull more with a harness than a just a collar when we walk him. I know every dog is different but you might want to ask about that at your next training session.
    Have fun!!

  2. He just looks like he's smiling! He's obviously a very happy pooch, now that he's come to be in your family. :)

  3. He's so cute and just the right size! He'll be on everyone's laps!
