10 Steps Back

Well this update isn't so pleasant. Rocky I feel has been taking 10 steps back on potty training. I thought he was fully trained yet he has been peeing in the house and crate more frequently. We have not changed anything recently except he is on medicine for a sore he had on his toe. He pees in the house when he gets super excited. He pees in the middle of rough housing (wrestling) with his brother Tommy, when someone else into the house he seems to dribble and he also has peed fully in the house when he just wants to. Besides this Rocky has been a good boy. He isn't to bad taking medicine and loves being in the vets office. He is really good at the commands of sit, down, stay/ wait, and stand. He is eating like a champ especially with stuff he finds on the floor (that's his favorite). I even took him back to the dog park and he wasn't to bad. He got a little to vocal for some of the owners so I leashed him to let him stay and experience it on leash and he was 10 times better! He did bark and try to join in others playing but when he learned the other dogs didn't care he laid right down and relaxed!! If there is any advice please help!

A little note/ update on the sleeping boy!

As Rocky lays next to me on the couch like a cat I write to you an update. Rocky enjoys laying on top of my couch cushion which usually ends up sucking him in when he rolls on his back. He is being a good boy. There is still much more training needed but he is slowing making progress. He now knows paw, sit, down, stand and in yet he is a stubborn boy (American bulldog) who does not always like to do what is told of him. Also he likes to jump up on people as a greeting. Little does this 30 pound boy know that when he is 100 pounds people will not think its cute, so I am working on stopping it. His brother and him get along great. Also Rocky is completely potty trained and crate trained! He loves to give kisses and more kisses, so I will also be working on a command to stop kissing cause not everyone likes them either! He has not had any fights at the dog park cause he goes alone now! He was starting fights with his brother there so I had to separate them and not bring them together. He loves people but definitely needs more socialization and experience around people! He is such a great puppy and a pleasure to have in the family. I really wish we were not so far from his family but one day hopefully they can meet up again. I sent a photo to his sister Star family the other day saying that when I talk to him about Star and his other sibling plus the foster parents he gives me kisses like he remembers them. This was taken during the time of my talking about them and showing him pictures on the computer. Tell me what you think!

Also I will be uploading a video and some photos of him from my phone soon!

Dare Devil Rocky

So my boy is a huge dare devil. Today while going to the dog park he decided to not listen to his mom to get out the back of the truck like his big brother but instead jump out the front driver side window! He was perfectly fine but he loves to jump and run! He was chasing plenty of toys today in the dog park. We had to leave in a fast hurry through because Rocky gets jealous over his big brother. He does not want his big brother to play with other dogs at the park so he will start a fight with them :( He thinks that his mom would not catch him but I do. He also likes to start fights with dogs then let his big brother finish the job as he runs along to play! This boy has a serious lesson that needs to be learned.

1. His mother will not tolerate fights in the dog park.
2. His mother will not tolerate jealous of other dogs.
3. His mother owns a dog not a DARE DEVIL!
All his dangerous moves scare me to death.
