The hardest part about having a new puppy is dealing with the frustration that comes with it. I find myself frustrated with the dog when she has an accident in the house. I know it’s not really her fault because she is so young and that the training process is not something that happens over night. You think you’re making headway in the right direction and then accidents happen and you feel dejected and that you’ve made absolutely no progress. Can you see how this would become exceedingly frustrating?
I also can’t recall how long it took for Olive to get the hang of the whole house training thing. It was almost a year ago that we were going through the process with her so my memory isn’t so good. She’s such a good dog now that it’s hard to think back to when she was just learning.
Anyway, I know that it will get better and that it is only a matter of time before Beezus catches on is just as good as Olive is. Fingers crossed she’ll learn faster since she has a role model in Olive and because I’ve gone through the whole process before.
On a positive note, Beezus seems to be getting the hang of “sit” and I think that, with a few more days of training, she’ll be an expert!
