It’s been a while since my last post, but time is moving way too fast.
Garm is now nearly four months old. He loves peoples and other dogs to that degree it’s almost impossible to take him for a walk. Every time he sees someone he wants to meet them. It doesn’t matter how far away they are, if he can see them he tries his best to get to them.
His reaction to meeting people is over excitement and biting. Combined with his natural urge to bite because of his teeth itching there is a lot of biting. Thankfully, with a lot of help from my friends, he lately seems to calm down and the biting gradually stops.
Like other puppies he is very curious and everything needs to be checked out. A few days ago he saw his first airplane when a small plane flew across at low altitude. He sat down staring at the plain like a kid would stare meeting “batman” for the first time. Only after the plane was way out of sight I managed to regain his attention.
Yesterday Garm decided to investigate the bottom of the river. I’m not sure how for long a dog can hold his breath but he stayed under for quite some time.
A puppy’s curiosity is also the biggest obstacle when trying to train him. The best thing to do is just let them investigate until they settle down, and then continue the training.
