~ Part Two
I still have plans for Tilman. I had hoped to start training for therapy dog certification in March or April and unfortunately, due to the virus, that has been put on hold. We’re using this time to learn to walk on a flat buckle collar, which is a requirement of the therapy dog. Tilman graduated from a head harness to a martingale collar with ease and I’m sure moving to a regular collar will also not phase him. He is a Weim through and through and let me know when he was done with the crate and head harness. These were two things he was started with as a pup and as he got older decided that he didn’t really like either that much. He understood that he was being given the opportunity to prove that he could be a good pup without either of these tools, and has succeeded in keeping his freedom from both.
This sweet and goofy boy is everything I wanted and we are such a good match. He is mostly calm but always ready to go if I am. Tilman is clearly an only child as he will seek my attention to play however, if I’m busy or have played enough, he will simply entertain himself. He is such a happy guy always smiling with his tail held high.
Thanks for what you do for the Weimaraner breed! Tilman is such a fine example of your experience and passion.
Tilman is gorgeous, and you have done well with him. Of course, from the moment we first spoke, I never doubted you would succeed. Thank you for the lovely update–everyone enjoyed seeing him. There were quite a few comments and likes. Have a beautiful summer.
