Everyone Meet Rascal
This dog is a Rascal! This dog is stinking cute, and he knows it. His owner is in love with him, and is very permissive with him. I did some clicker training with Rascal. He is very smart and can be naughty at times. He often does not come when called and he recently started marking. He is neutered and approximately a year and a half old. His owner did not do puppy training classes with him, she thought because he was a small dog, he didn't need training. All dogs need training no matter what their size. I recommended she start from the beginning and take obedience puppy classes to start fresh and get Rascal on the right track. (A name change might be in order, so he does not feel he needs to live up to his name RASCAL). All good mothers know their children need rules, boundaries, limitations and love. Happy Mother's Day to all you moms.
