Miss Darcy — Part Two
We have started taking Darcy to the dog parks and she loves it! She loves meeting new dogs and new people, including kids, and she gets along really well with all of them. We have taken her to lakes and rivers on several occasions, and she seems to like the water. However, she does NOT like the cold, so we have to ease her into the water sometimes. She is great at swimming.
Crate training has been great for us, and we couldn’t survive without the crate. She sleeps in it, and goes in it whenever we have to leave her at home. She is comfortable and happy in there, and knows it’s a safe place. House training has gone well, too, and we know both of these things are thanks to you guys setting her up for success at an early age. Thanks for that!! 🙂
She has the potential to be a great hunting dog! She loves birds, (including our chickens…uh-oh!) and goes on point all the time. She loves to be out in the fields, jumping birds and smelling everything. One thing she is currently struggling with is walking on the leash. She pulls and pulls and chokes herself the whole time we are walking her. She seems to be doing a little better, but we’re looking into some other collars that are supposed to help her along, so we’ll let you know how that goes. I am anxious for her to get the loose lead so she can go running with me when she’s old enough. I’ve taken her a few times (just for a few minutes) and she bites at my legs, or runs in front of me and trips me.
We love our sweet Darcy and are very grateful for her in our family. Thank you guys for everything you have done, and continue to do to help make this puppy-raising time easier and happier. We’d be lost without all the great info on your website and blog.
-Braydon, Julie, and kids (and Darcy)
