Going Home: Jake

Welcome to Woof Wednesday! Today we share an update about Jake (formerly known as Ryan), who is clearly hitting it out of the park with his new family. It's great to hear how well he is doing and how eager he is to become the best dog he can be. Frisbees, spiders, Jake takes it all in stride now that he has found a home.

"Jake, previously Ryan, is doing great! We couldn't have asked for a better dog. He is so easy to train. Within the first 2 days, he was already following our commands to sit and lay down. He is fully potty trained. No messes in the house at all. He loves to play fetch, has frisbee dog potential, loves to snuggle up to us on the couch and has a special talent of finding (and sometimes eating) spiders much to my son's delight. My son is terrified of spiders, but we seem to get a bit of them around this time of year. He calls Jake the spider detector and asks him to do a spider check in his room every night. Having Jake around seems to have reduced some of the anxiety my son has with spiders. According to my son's preschool teacher, my son talks about Jake at school all the time and is really excited about having him. She's noticed his listening skills have improved too.

Both my husband and I have had dogs in our lives and have gone to dog training classes before. We're trying to do some basic training with him on our own for now and will probably enroll in a training class closer to home at some point so he can learn to pay attention when other dogs are around.
