WE GOT A PUPPY! Everyone, meet Jet!

When I was working as a nurse in Seattle my shifts were 12 hours with a round trip commute time of 3 hours. On the days that I worked I was home long enough to sleep, then I would get up and do it all over the next day. So, even though I longed for a dog, my work schedule never allowed for it. Until now! (Stay at home mom schedule for the win!)

Call me crazy for adopting a puppy while juggling a newborn (and a house remodel), but I just couldn’t help myself! I have been waiting to own a dog for years. And I’m crazy. I figured I’m already cleaning up body fluids daily, what better time then now?! So when my friend alerted me to the new rescues at Kitsap Humane Society, I knew our dog was there.

Jet is a black labrador retriever mix. He is sweet as can be, super laid back and all cuddles! Julian finds him hilarious and fascinating. They are fast friends.

I would love any advice you all have for puppy/house training. Comment and let me know!

  1. We used the clicker for training! And with a lab, he’ll pick it up quick. It’s simple, when you click — you treat. Even if you accidentally click you treat. So when Jet is doing something good, you click and give him a treat (i.e. Going potty outside, sitting, going to bed, etc.)! Some say it’s better to reinforce good behavior than say “bad dog” when he does something bad. We did a little bit of both, but can definitely say that the clicker worked wonders! Good luck!
