The ZUZU CHRONICLES


Zuzu, a greyhound at 4.5 weeks old

We've added a new puppy to our household!  A local greyhound rescue group that we work with received a pregnant foster and they asked us to adopt one of the puppies.  We have named her Zuzu (the name of one of the characters in the movie, Its A Wonderful Life). We post as much detail as possible about how we raise her, including not just training, but covering areas including the food we feed her, dental and nail trimming care, socialization, crate and house training and more.  Click here for a listing of these posts.

New people & experiences are critical for puppies
 
Zuzu is 12 weeks old now. At some moments (like when she’s sleeping peacefully), it seems as if this past six weeks has flown by and she won’t be a puppy for long. At other moments (like when Zuzu is attacking my pants leg because she’s tired and cranky and needs a nap) it seems like time drags on and she might never grow up!

Minimizing puppy biting
 
I’m not sure which drives people crazier when living with a puppy – the housetraining or the puppy biting. Both can be difficult to deal with and try the patience of even the calmest person you know. If I had a dollar for every time I heard “This biting needs to stop!” I could be sitting on a beach somewhere right now sipping a margarita.
 

Zuzu doesn’t always choose the most appropriate items to bite. Fortunately, Bolo is very tolerant!

Puppy bath time – got your rubber ducky?

Anyone who knows me well can tell you that I will spend hours upon hours training dogs, but I prefer to spend as little time as possible with grooming. I enjoy training. Grooming, for me, is a huge chore. (There’s a reason I have short hair, and I live with breeds of dogs who have short hair that require little to no grooming!)
