Puppy camp update

The raisers who have Joe for camp had a medical question about Joe a few days ago so I got a little update on my boy (when I called to answer their question)! He has been a very good boy and it sounds like he is getting some new exposures. He went to a fencing meet, to work, to a park and was getting ready to get some more outings that afternoon.

She did say that Joe has figured out how to open their baby gates. For most dogs, just leaning a baby gate up next to the doorway will stop them; not Joe he uses his nose and bumps it out of his way. He also knows how to open them when you do secure them to the wall. We won’t even start talking about Joe and doors inside the house! (Have I mentioned that Joe is too smart for his own good sometimes?!?!) Of course that smartness does come in handy when it comes to training ;-)

Joe comes home Saturday Morning after our puppy meeting! Can’t wait to have the little guy back!


  1. Wow, that IS a bit too smart! What do you do about that? Cute AND smart--that's a lethal combination.

  2. I know! I am just hoping once he is in advance training he will use his smartness and cuteness for good instead of evil:)!


Thanks for the comment!
Rebecca and Joe
