About Winston Churchill

Winston is a very sweet and loving puppy. He has not met a person or a dog that he doesn't love. He is very food motivated so you can easily get him to do anything using treats. He knows the basics: sit, down, stay and come. He responds to a firm, deep 'No' and a clap if he is getting into anything he's not supposed to. Expect him to pick up remotes, shoes etc. I haven't noticed him wanting to chew on them he just carries them around and gives them to you. When you take them say, 'Thank you' in a happy tone. That's his cue to release. If it's something really exciting like a sock or toilet paper he won't voluntarily give it up. Be mindful of your electronics as those have been known to make their way to his water dish. He eats twice a day (1 cup morning and night). Make him sit or down and stay before each meal. His release word is 'okay!'. I've been practicing filling his water dish and doing other short tasks while he waits to eat. Keep all other pet's food out of his reach because he will find it and he will eat it. He has not given me any indication that he is food aggressive. For play he loves wading in his kiddie pool or a game of fetch with his rubber lacrosse ball. I sometimes feed him his food in a treat ball he can roll around on the floor. He's very snuggly and loves to bury his head on your stomach when you pet him. He's a very polite car passenger so you can take him anywhere, and he shouldn't try to climb into the front seat. He may need a little boost getting into the car. I have been working on polite leash walking on the left-side of your body. The gentle-leader has helped with that. He's not a fan but usually if you give him a treat every few steps he should respond well to it.
