Ajax is five months old! During the first six months his socialisers, John and Ann, have made sure that Ajax has a consistent routine. This routine will help him to develop in areas such as house training, learning to be left alone, and basic obedience. John and Ann will spend time socialising Ajax around lots of people and animals, and together they will visit as many different places as possible.
We caught up with John and Ann for an update how he is getting on
“Ajax is now almost 24 weeks old and seems to be growing so fast every day. We have been taking him out and about and are giving him a few different experiences such as a short bus ride which he was quite taken with and, of course he continues to go shopping with us.
“We are encouraging Ajax to get in other people's cars when possible so that he is comfortable getting into, and travelling in, different vehicles. Ajax is coming on well; he knows his commands, walks well on the lead and is very happy winding up our other dog, Jackson.
“His training is going fine and he now understands most of his commands and this is where our other dog has played his part; on being given commands Ajax watches Jackson and does what he does.
“Ajax is a loving pup but, at only 5 months old, he still has to be closely supervised as he has a tendency to pick items up when he thinks you’re not watching - I recently had to replace a pair of reading glasses that he’d come across. However, his big craving is food and finding ways to obtain it. We recently had a plate of four jam tarts reduced to two after which he adopted a low profile and tried to keep out of sight!
“Despite this we have no doubt that Ajax is a loving pup who we think will continue to grow into a wonderful dog.”
As you can see Ajax has had a wonderful start to his training and despite a few missing Jam tarts he continues to impress his two socialisers! Ajax still has a long way to go before he can start helping people so check back in another 4 or 5 months to see what lies in store for this special little guy!
