Kota is a barker. Alaska seems to have settled down quite a bit though she still really loves to play & loves to run. Kota's come a long way but we still have a little ways to go. I know he's almost a year old so still much, much puppy left in him. Just ready for him to mellow out a bit more. Though I will say this, we no longer have to keep him locked in the bedroom when company comes over. That's a plus for sure. And, they are not escaping hardly at all any more. Keeping fingers crossed here as this was a recent accomplishment.
We're getting there slowly but surely with the dogs. They are definitely well loved. Now, we have to work on the hyper bit. Like jumping up on people to say hello. A guy that came to the house today said he has the same problem with his puppies that he has. I guess that was kind of a relief as we feel at least were not the only ones. The puppies have gotten better about so many things. Kota is definitely a lot more calmer and doesn't question every person that comes to the house. Well, as long as were with him. He barks a lot when people come over but still much better than before. He and Digby get along very well now and play every morning together. Kota is the kind of dog that loves to rough house with the kids. Yet, he'll lay on his back so you can scratch his belly. Overall, Kota is doing excellent. Just need to tweak some things a bit more.
