S-P Pups Day 47: The Gray-V Train

Dinner is served! Watch the Gray-V Train starring the Fast Times Pups (Parker x Savi) come running for their evening meal!

Food is a big motivator for the pups and once the pups were weaned, we introduced loud noises to the pups as we began to feed them. This way the pups associate loud noises, like banging their metal food dish, with positive outcomes like food and help decrease noise sensitivity.  Additionally, you can see in the video that we have begun early recall training using food and the puppy puppy command to get them to come to me. This early imprinting is very important and even our older dogs respond to my puppy puppy call.
