Likes: I really love getting to spend time with mom at the WDM Puppy Park & getting to see all my puppy friends. I love running like crazy through the tall grass areas. When we aren't hanging out there I love to play, meet everyone I possibly can, and training.
Pet-Peeves: I'm a lot better at avoiding Puppy Time Outs, but they are still my pet peeve. If I get too excited around the house, mom will put me in one to calm me down with no TV. I soo still need to learn to get the TiVo remote and learn to program it.
Favorite Toy: I absolutely love getting to play "Ballie" with mom. I love the taste of tennis balls! I also enjoy a good tug game, sticks, anything that squeaks, and my treat ball. I'm no longer allowed to use mom as a chew toy, so anything else I can chew on is good
Favorite Food: Chicken has to be like the best food EVER! My other favorite is still ice cream. Mom got it for me after a tramatic Fireworks experience. (I liked the fireworks, just not the sound - don't tell mom, I may never get ice cream again.)
Favorite Walk: Directly to Grammy's House. Do not pass go, do not collect $200. I love my Grammy and her new kitty Tessa.
Best Tricks: Sit and Drop. Mom loves when I do a "power" drop. She laughs so much...she is kinda simple that way :) I don't have a ton of really "cool" tricks, but I hope to learn more in the coming months.
Arrival Story: Mom was supposed to adopt from someone else but for some reason it didn't turn out so her brother-in-law did a little checking around. She came to see me at a small breeders house and I picked her out right away. I showered her with kisses and my puppy breath and I knew I had a new mommy. (Shhh She thinks she picked me)
Bio: I am an identical twin, but sadly my twin didn't make it. I wasn't given too much info on my twin, but I do know that we shared the same sac - so we really were true twins. I am doing some more research into my heritage and as I find it all out, I will have it on my personal web site at: www.jordangsd.com and mom has one with me at www.myspace.com/muddymuttspetstuff
Early Training: I have taken and passed many classes from the time I was just a tiny pup. The trainers at Canine Craze were great on getting me to know the importance of getting out and about in all kinds of situations and be well socialized.
Additional Training: I furthered my education out at Rover's Ranch. Darcy is a great trainer not only for me but for mom too. She was able to guide my mom on how to better work with me as I was a bit strong headed and play driven.
Special Training: Kudos also go to another trainer Crystal who intorduced us to eCollar training. I know a lot of people are against that kind of tool, but for me, my learned the correct way to use it so now we can go on really cool off leash hikes.
Home Schooling: My mom still wants to make sure I am a well rounded pup so we still do some training around the house, out on walks, and anywhere else we happen to be. I probably could be a better student, but home is for play, not school. LOL
Future Training: Well, plans have changed some, but I really want to go get my CGC now to prove to people just how great of a dog I am. Hopefully we will get into some classes this fall and I will have another certificate to add to my collection.
