Duke

Is Doing Great!

Schell's Duke at Home-3We are doing great, getting acquainted with our Duke and he is getting used to his new home and us.

He was very good for the ride home; I sat with him in the back and he slept the whole way home.

Schell's Duke at Home-2We brought him home and went to our yard first for him to potty and he did. We haven’t had an accident in the house (yay!).  He lets us know by sitting at the door when he’s ready to go out. He likes his crate and we have slowly been getting him used to that being his special spot. He whined for about 15 minutes the first night and then slept for about an hour. We took him out and put him in for a couple more hours (About 15 minutes of whimpering and howling. Then the next time we took him out to potty, we slept with him on the couch. We are trying to prolong his time in the crate each day as he gets more comfortable to his environment. 

Schell's Duke at HomeHe slept for a couple hours earlier today in his crate, shut during the afternoon while we were close by and he did a little whimper and then didn’t fuss. It was very good. We are going to see how tonight goes for a longer period in the crate.

We are learning he likes to chew and get his energy out, so those pig ears and small toy with his family’s scent on it have been big hits for him, as well as a big stuffed dinosaur which is comical to watch and these tall grass reeds in our yard.

We still have to work on his retrieve.

He is a big lovebug and definitely likes to be close to us. 🙂

Thanks for all your help and tips. I will keep you posted and feel free to check in as well.
