Secret #3 Please make sure you introduce me to your friends and neighbors and family. This is a very important secret!
The experts state that I should meet 1 new person per day for the first 100 days of my life with you. These should be people of different sizes, ethnic backgrounds, with hats, sunglasses, umbrellas. I remember my golden freaking out at an umbrella 🙂
Introduce me to quiet people, kids moving around and shouting, to groups, the more I see these, the less I am apt to get afraid!
Secret #2 All About Peeing! Do you remember shoving your puppies nose in a pee puddle? Here is the secret: Your puppy has NO idea why you did this. Instead, take your puppy outside, as fast as you can and praise and praise him when he pees outdoors!
Secret #1 It doesn’t mean that I am happy, just because I am purring. I also purr when I’m in pain or when I am mortally afraid, because it is a self soothing mechanism for me.
