It is very cute when I reprimand the pups and the they scurry back to their sheep pen. They turn and check to see if I am coming and once they are inside, then I praise them and pet them. I also go inside the sheep pen frequently to visit the sheep and the pups on their own territory.
I am not sure where Mike and Joe sleep. Usually it is outside, though when it is raining, which it has done a lot this summer, they must seek shelter somewhere. They have a small area that is grassy with no sheep manure that they are allowed to go to and that is where they are fed. There is a shelter that was constructed for the potbelly pigs that the pups may be sleeping in. It is on the other side of the sheep pen, but the sheep are sometimes allowed there and I do not send the pups away from it, so they feel secure there too.
It won't be long before these are really big dogs. It is time to tie them up for short periods to get used to their collars, then to leash train them or they will not be moveable when they are grown. Ofcharka went to the hospital today to get porcupine quills out of his nose and he showed everyone how wonderful he is on a leash. He walks with no tension on the lead, beside the person who is leading him at the pace of the person. Excellent! Now to teach Mike and Joe the same skill.
