Daphne - Fabi/Jack 2017
Happy 1st Birthday to these very special Goldens!
Hello Rhonda and Stephanie,
I hope you are doing well and preparing for what looks like and exciting puppy season!
Daphne, (Fabi/Jack 7/7/17) is everything we ever hoped for and more in a Golden companion and family dog. She breezed through her puppy class and also through her Canine Good Citizen class. When walking her through the trails in our neighborhood, many adults and children alike just have to stop and say hi to Daphne. People are naturally drawn to her and her calm demeanor. She sits when anyone approaches her as she has learned that that is how she receives treats and affection!
Naturally, even after her classes we have continued to work on commands. Many times, she seems to anticipate what I am going to ask of her before I even ask it, that is how in tune she is with me! I follow your website and have really learned from some of your tips such as separating the “stay” command into either time or distance until they get the hang of it. She had trouble with “stay" for the longest time, and I could tell after I followed your advice that she was just confused over what I was asking of her. Within days she had it down! (We're so glad this helped, Jennifer! We always start with time...then distance...then distractions.)
Although she sticks close by my side, she often checks in on what the kids are doing and has a special relationship with each of them. They literally lay on the floor and roll around with her sometimes, and she is never anything but gentle and loving toward them, even at just a year old! She amazes me every day. Thanks so much for all that you do to put such special companions into the lives of people!
Our next Fabi litter coming up this year will be with Goose (a Jack son!). If you're interested in learning more about this beautiful pairing, please let us know. There are only two spots remaining to reserve from this upcoming litter. Contact us or fill out a Puppy Application.
