I even was able to get a photo of the three of them together.
We tried to emulate a photo taken 11 years ago when R was a puppy. The other two in the photo are S the Yellow Lab and K the Chocolate Lab. It's cool that little R is now the eldest in our pack.
I thought that you might enjoy seeing a short video of me training Hachi. I am teaching him things that are useful right now in his socialization: 1) touching my hand with his nose (because I can use hand touches to help him be comfortable around new people and objects), 2) responding to his name by coming toward me, and 3) sitting.
I am using a clicker to mark the instant when he does the right thing and following each click with a treat to reward him.
Thank goodness that he's going to grow. Training a tiny puppy like him is tough on my spine that is held together with rods and screws!
Here is the video.
