Three Weeks With Riggs #GDApupRiggs

Riggs has been with us for three weeks now. He’s eating 100g of Bob Martin Puppy three times a day, and he weighs 9kg!
We’re very excited – it looks like Riggs is starting to ask to go outside by going to the door! He’s so clever!

We had a couple of thunderstorms this week, and Riggs is completely unphased by thunder, and he doesn’t mind going outside in the rain.
He also approached his daddy to check out the guitar!

Riggs had his first, short, shopping trip this week too, to our “usual” Pick n Pay, and as he has yet to have all his inoculations he has to be carried, or ride in a trolley. Since he weighed over 8kg – I opted for a trolley! He’s still learning to wear his blue puppy-in-training jacket, so I hung it on the trolley behind him. He was good as gold, having a good look around as we went along.

We continue to work on his obedience lessons- we missed puppy class as he had a bit of an upset tummy on Tuesday- so we have been working on the exercises we got at the last puppy club session – putting on his puppy jacket, SIT, making eye contact (we haven’t added the word “WATCH” yet), walking on lead, and so on.
He also had a wonderful playdate with another puppy raiser and her two Labs, and he had SO much fun! He was fast asleep in the car before we left her gate! 😀
