Papillon Puppy Training

I have red Jane Killon's Puppy Culture extensively, and incorporated some of her training, and ideas to my own puppy rearing here at home.
Here is a good sample of one the things our puppies get to learn:

Below you see an unstable platform (actually a simple board with half of a tennis ball attached under it). On top is a crinkly plastic bag. Of course, these objects will be with them only for the time of the training session.
At this age- 5 weeks- it is time to learn not to be fearful of strange textures, noises, and unstable surfaces-to help them to be a secure, fearless, and outgoing dog.


Benito and Fabio are inspecting the plastic bag, as well as the wobbly board.
Of course, the goal is for them to walk on it.



Above, the winner to day is Benito- he was the first one to step on the platform.


Above: Fabio is in the background.
Below, now we are trying it without the plastic bag. It is very brave of both of them to step on such moving/rolling object.


Below : again little brother Benito is the first runner up in this game.


Bravo Benito!!


Below: followed shortly by big brother Fabio.


Bravo Fabio: you are a true champ!

Stone Pony Pap Trial

Big won "High in Trial" for Novice at the Stone Pony Pap trial. So proud of my little bug. I was also tagged to post a picture that makes me proud to be a dog mom. The truth is every picture of my dogs makes me happy. No matter what I do they are happy except when I go out the door. And then when I come back, of course it's like I have been gone forever.
"Big" lives in California , along with his  brother P'Air; also very active in performance sport (Agility).

2 little German Krauts, they finally arrived, after a long trip from Berlin Germany to Seattle, WA. and by road still to Salem, Oregon. 
A trip of almost 30 hours.
No wonder we have to re-due their ears. 
Just arrived




Update on my 2 little girls, which had a good night sleep, and are by now adjusting better than expected. Already love their raw food, fell in love with their beef back bones, they where groomed, nails trimmed, and put on a lead to take a walk.
We are getting to know each other very well.
They also got new call names .
Bisou, & Biscotti are exactly 12 weeks old today.
