Those who are familiar with and own our wonderful Habibi Bear puppies often tell us how loving and cuddly our little furry guys and gals are! It is one of their defining characteristics! We couldn’t agree more and we are pleased to be able to share our magical Crystal Babies with the entire world. Our puppies are pretty close to being in every one of the 50 states, and that is awe inspiring! So many of our clients are eager to bring our Habibi Bear puppies into their hearts and homes, and one of the most frequent questions we receive is …. Drum roll Please….. When Can I Let My Puppy on the Couch?
As we talked about in the last two weeks, when we understand about space and hierarchy in the dog world, we can use that information to bring the very best out in our loving little Habibi Bear puppies. If we can honestly evaluate abilities, capabilities and personalities, we can safely invite puppy to share our intimate space of a couch or chair to sit alongside of us. Be sure to start and end every cuddle session with a polite sit or place -
And don’t be afraid to rescind the offer if puppy starts acting out once this happens, simply get back to the basics for a few more weeks. If you really have your heart set on having a Netflix Binge fest with your pup next to you, try it again after the above 10 criteria is met on a consistent basis. Remember, progress and growth are an upwards spiral that takes a little time to achieve. So don’t lose heart by a few tiny setbacks, and if you need more help, check out our Pup Start
program and reach out to us. We’re always here for you, cheering you on!
