So we picked up our baby boy this morning. Sorry I don’t have any pictures, but I wanted to let you know that we will probably be in a puppy hell for at least 2-3 weeks as we crate train, obedience train, and potty train the pup. Posts will be fleeting as so will be my sleep 😉
I did want to tell you though that we decided to also not give most commands in English. This is really for our protection. It is always better to have a stranger not know how to command your dog. We looked at many languages and thought about going German. We may or may not put him through Shutzchand training. Normally they use German, but more and more police dogs are going with a wide range of languages such as a mix of German, Dutch, and Czech. We looked at many languages and many, including German, seemed to have a lot of commands that sounded like English. We didn’t want that so we ended up with Czech. It will be a learning experience for all of us. The internet has been great and helping us pronounce words. It will just take some learning. Who cares if we don’t get it quite right, he’s our dog. Our other dog will speak English though since she is already trained. She’s the one you have to worry about anyway..those big dogs are all bark with no bite..its the little ones that sneak up on you and rip your leg off!
Happy Homesteading!! 😀
