Just like to share some pictures of my 9 week old boy Rocko. He is an absolute bundle of joy. Currently giving him basic training like sit, stay, wait and lie down. Finding stay and wait quite hard at the minute as im making him sit until his food goes down but then he lunges, any tips regarding how to teach him to wait would be greatful please. Smile

Great pics but loving the last one Big Grin

Sounds like you're doing really well. Patience is the key. All of a sudden it will fall into place, I use a flat hand as the wait command which works fairly well. Be consistent and you'll get there.

Gorgeous boy! As others have said; patience and practise! Impulse control will come with time, but don't expect too much too young. If you set him up to fail, you will both be disappointed. Work with his strengths for now whilst you're building a bond Smile
