Benji poodle Benji3
Hello there Smile I'm Benji and i'm 6. to date i've had a pampered lifestyle with staff and not owners. because of this i can be a bit bossy to get my own way - if this means snapping at fingers then i give it a go.

i've been living with my fosterer for 5 days now and in that time i've learnt its fun to go back on the floor and its ok to be groomed and checked over. i dont have to bite fingers anymore!
i'm still learning about the crate but once settled i can be left for a few hours and i sleep through the night. when travelling in the car i mustnt be allowed in the front! i bite fingers when i'm not allowed on knees!! *whoops*

Those are my bad points and i know they dont showcase me very well but i'm trying very hard to be a good boy. i'm not a bad boy really just a bit spoilt.

Here i am learning what heel work is all about

just look at my attention!!!

wanna see my recall practice?

i worked really hard to get it right and had loads of fun.

i'm a little scared of traffic so my foster mum takes me out to play in a safe area right next to a busy road! i think thats just mean but i'm getting better with it now.

i sleep at night, i dont bark when left infact i only bark when someone is at the door. i walk really well on the lead! i will go to the end of it if given the chance but i never pull. i even wait next to the road when told and will cross when i'm told 'ok'
i live with 3 dogs and 2 dog savvy children.
i dont like to be handled so its best if i go with older children please, i cant risk being poked or pulled incase i get my teefies out and i dont want to Sad
i did do some scent marking in the dining room and kitchen but hey who can blame me?? i'm in a new house with 3 bitches i really have to let everyone know i'm the man of the house. i'm never done a big puddle though or a number 2. i've always waited until the garden or my walkies for those.

i LOVE walkies!! i can go and go and go even keeping up with those dallies but not that pesky collie, shes just too fast for me. my fosterer likes to run so she took me out for a short jog with her, what fun! i bounced and ran with my ears flapping in the wind. she didnt let me do too much because i dont have much of a muscle mass she says. what ever that is??

i've had a little try at agility, what fun that was! its been quite an adventure but i really do need a home of my own. every day i spend here i'm building a bond with my foster family. will you love me and try to understand me?

love Benji. good boy in training xxx

What a great write up and what a super little man he is! Your great. You showing him all teh right things and that can only make him happier and more relaxed. After you've shown him how to be the good boy he wants to be he will make a superb busy pet.

we are making daily breakthroughs now. he has been pretty much a perfect dog for 2 days, all that let him down was that he scent marked the sleeve of my dog walking jacket and my dad came to visit so he marked in the dining room.

Have you tried to human trick to stop Benji from scent marking ??

Get your hubby to take a leak in an empty bottle, then use this on Benji should he feel the need to take a little sprinkle.

You will be amazed at the results, no scent marking trust me

Fantastic progress! Well done.
Wee bottle sounds like a great idea! Is it only good for the mans wee or can the woman be top dog as well as top bitch ? Is it a positive or negative reinforcement? Don't scent here because your mine and i'm boss? is that it?

Di

Its only the Man's Wee that works on this Im afraid (its must be the only thing that a woman cant do lol! )

The Testosterone level and smell sometimes is enough to ward off any leg lifting, but you have to do the correct timings with it for it to work successfully, but the results are amazing.

the piddling indoors is no more, even with being left while i go to work. he had no reaction to the fireworks and will now go out on a walk in the rain. we do have a step backwards however which is to be expected, the sound of the traffic in the wet and the car head lights are spooking him.
so as not to set him back further all training near the road has stopped.
the better food has greatly improved his poo.
its got to be said i've not done any obedience training with him, my main focus is to help him on his way to his new home.

he can be handled
he is great with my 2 kids esp my 10 year old son
will happily greet all when out and about
will greet other dogs but not want to play or interact yet
walks well on a lead
can be left alone
sleeps through the night
lives with but wont interact with my 3 dogs
can now be handled all over
can be groomed all over except his forelegs
nails can be clipped as long as handled confidently and then bribed with large amounts of cheese!!
is learning to play and interact with humans confidently
barks when ppl approach the door but will settle when told and then greets visitors happily

there really is little more i can do for this lad. he would make a great companion dog, he loves a walk but will not create or be hyperactive if not walked for a day (i was ill Sad ) he curled up with me and mine and was perfectly happy great1

my 3 dogs greatly dislike our elderly next door neighbour. he has never harmed my dogs but the dals cant look at him and the collie goes beserk every time she spots him. he wanted to say hi to benji, he offered the back of his hand and took care not to bend right over him (he and his wife used to breed chi's and then went on to own a westie) Benji poodle esquire stuck his nose in the air as though poor John had caused him a huge offense. i dont know what it is about him but i felt terrible........snobby little poodle lol

what a lovely day! i let my 12 year old daughter handle him on a long walk this morning and he didnt put a paw wrong. she trained on heel work and recalls and handled him well when he was confronted with a cocker that was soooo sure he really would like to play.

even when we faced roads she asked him to wait which he did and he didnt budge until she released him with an 'ok'

just lovely to see Smile well done Benji xxx

Any news on the home check? Has Benji found his forever home? He sounds like a super little dog after all your hard work with him.

I have a large soft spot for poodles, especially those that aren't trimmed into topiary balls (each to their own!)... but unfortunately I don't think I could persuade the hubby to have a one :-(

I was just rooting for him really Very Happy
