Social skills grow every day

Obedient Bentley continues to shine. His puppy raising officer, Kez, described him as an excellent student at his last training session. The training mainly focused on strengthening basic obedience as well as recalls, lead work and stairs.

After the training, the puppies were treated to their first visit to a cafe in Windsor where Bentley behaved perfectly. He made several friends including Rush, a fun-loving golden labrador who apparently was very comfortable to sit on.

As the weeks have gone on, Bentley has grown and changed in many ways. He is no longer sleeping in his puppy crate and has a perfect bed in his puppy raiser’s bedroom.

However, despite all the changes he still continues to be vocal about what he wants and when he wants it, coincidentally mainly at feed times. He can be a stubborn little pooch.

His favourite time of day is 5pm where he gets some cuddle time after a hard day of playing, relaxing and sunbaking.
