Four Weeks With Riggs #GDApupRiggs

Riggs is eleven weeks old, and he weighs a whopping 10kg!

I am very pleased to say that Riggs is definitely asking to go outside when he needs to go busy, and if he really needs to go he’ll whine a little too. This is awesome!

This week he had another short shopping trip with me to a PnP, again in a trolley (he’s not yet allowed on the floor in a shop unless the mall is enclosed). He got a few greetings from the other shoppers, and he wore his puppy jacket.

He attended his first big gathering with our family’s Easter celebration, and he got to meet a couple of children too. He handled it all like a pro!
Puppy club this week was very cool – Riggs and his siblings got their 10 week inoculations, and we have started a few new exercises for loose-leash walking, and the “DOWN” command. We also started adding the word “WATCH” to the exercise we’ve been doing.
