This is my best friend’s sister’s new Australian shepherd puppy, Oscar! He is so smart and attentive. I was chatting with them and they have him on raw as well. I’m so happy more and more people are becoming educated in the benefits of feeding raw to our furbabies. I did tell them how important, along with nutrition, it is to take him to puppy training. Even if you know how to train, it’s important to get your pup’s socialized and to get them to pay attention in a busy setting. Training at home is amazing but being able to have your new pup perform in everyday life outside the home is important, as well. The reality is that we’re training not just to have a happy and safe dog within the home but also outside the home. Some of this training can save our pets from the dangers outside. Such as “drop it”, “leave it”, or to prevent your pups from bolting.
