George is Adjusting

June 11, 2016

Everything is going well.

George seems totally housebroken, the older dog is starting to tolerate him a little more and he’s adjusting happily to the house. He’s eating 3-5 cups a day ravenously and I can see him getting bigger by the day.

The Desire to Please

Looking forward to a couple weeks when he had enough stamina for some outings besides short walks. He’s also showing intense interest in leftover quail and ring-neck deaths I had in the freezer. He’s a sweet mellow dog and you were right- he shows real interest in trying to understand what I want him to do. I think he’s probably smart anyway but this motivation is really what’s making him so easy to train so far.

Cliff and I are happy to hear that George is adjusting and settling into your family–as well as the household routine. It is good that you have some birds to use between now and hunting season. He has an excellent nose and keeping the interest forefront is a good idea.

Gulping of Food

Gobble StopperWe believe it is in the best interest of the Weimaraner to encourage them to eat slower. Gulping their food can soon be a habit, and many believe this can lead to an episode of bloat.

The puppy stage is the time to implement measures that thwart gulping food. Many people have found the special bowls that require a pup to eat slower beneficial. Check out the bowl choices–click here! There are several styles (these are often called the slo-bowl), and people have written to us about having success using several variations. We feel it is worth checking out and considering.
