Given the fact that it’s freezing and blowing snow outside, we moved dog gates around and gave the puppies full access to the kitchen and dining nook, which includes the dog door. We hadn’t taught them how to use the dog door (which includes a long ramp for Claudia) because we didn’t want to grant them access to the entire house, but smarty pants Smitty learned it all on his own. (p.s. he’s still available)
We worked on sitting patiently while mommy eats and reads the paper.
They still are puppies though afterall.
