Eeyore is a wild Shepard mix puppy. Born into this world under a shed and never met a kind human hand. Caught in a cage at 3 months old without his mother and sibling only to be brought to a loud strange place with no one to comfort him. Maverick Pet Transport is a 503c rescue and allowed my husband and I to pull this petrified puppy from the animal shelter to foster him until he becomes a confidant and exemplary member of the k-9 world! This blog is to show his progress.

Obedience training begins
Every dog needs to have manners. EVERY DOG. The ones that don't have a very hard time with life. Always struggling with themselves whether to obey the human or be the humans leader... and humans don't like being led by the dog. Because of this power struggle, dogs need to have manners from a very early age. Some say that you can start training a pup at 6 weeks!
Using a SUPER tasty treat (his own kibble seems to work just fine) I set up in the kitchen to see how little Eeyore would do with his first day.
