Pupdate – Zeus 6 Months Old

Zeus, our German Shepherd puppy, is growing soooo fast.  He’s just about 6 months and lost the last of his needle sharp baby teeth yesterday – we’re all thrilled about that as he is so much calmer now that the pain of cutting teeth is over.

Zeus was pretty fiery as a little guy but is becoming such a sweetie – look at that face!  I am enjoying the heck out of him.  We take lots of long walks to burn off energy and do many training bouts throughout the day.  He’s a super fast learner and so fun to work with.

It’s not all fun and games – he’s not a huge fan of other dogs and wants to chase anything that moves.  He has pretty strong prey drive.  So I go out everyday and look for situations that might set him off (not hard to find) and work at a distance to desensitize him.  He has great focus and it goes pretty well most of the time.  But when he does erupt, I collect him up, shake it off, and try again.  We always end on a good note and I come away feeling so grateful for my training buddy.

That’s my pupdate.  All the best to you and yours,
