Gibbs, our Flat coated retriever pup, was 4 months old on 6th January, and like all proud parents of a fluffy puppy, we’re keeping tabs on his growth chart. He now weighs in at 15 kilos so that’s 3 kilos in one month – sounds about right to me.
He’s now fully house-trained and “asks” to go outside for pees and poops rather than waiting for us to decide it’s time. He is also doing very well with basic commands. After mastering the “sit” and “down”, he can now also manage the “stay” and walking to heel is getting better & better every day.
Teething is going to be the next obstacle as Gibbs will chew anything he can get his teeth into.
For the moment, nothing of great value, but we’re more worried about him swallowing dangerous items than about actual damage. Mind you, he did manage to steal a couple of goat cheeses the other night but he doesn’t just go for plastic.
I managed to get a photo of Gibbs sporting the bandana made & sent by Lynn, (please admire the “sit” and “stay” position lol) but sadly, I can’t let him wear this without supervision, no matter how cute he looks in it, because . . . yes, he tries to chew it.
