We are busy busy in the nursery. Preparing the pups for an easy transition to their forever homes means lots of training on our end. We learned steps yesturday. Next step no pun intended is leashes. At 8 weeks we will not be professional walkers but will be familiar with the leash and have a basic idea of being restricted and not running free. Just a side note: if you call me and I don't answer, please leave a message. I will call you back. I spend almost every waking moment with the pups at this age. I do return calls and answer questions just as soon as I can. This is my busy time when they reach this age.
