Jet went to work with me this morning for a couple of hours to get ready for next week. While we were there we practiced lots of skills. He walked back and forth with me down the hall carrying papers and a pencil. It took a few times for him to keep it in his mouth, but once he figured out what I wanted he carried it all the way to my room on 3 different trips. He also practiced jumping onto an elevated table, which is something we have not done yet. It took no convincing at all. Of course, he used a chair as a stepladder up, but that's okay. I wouldn't have him jump onto the slick surface right away because it could scare him.
He also practiced some Down/Under while I was working. He settled in very nicely underneath my desk with no whining at all.
This is Bentley, my sister's papillion puppy. He's really young, but he won't get a whole lot bigger than this. He's a positive experience for Jet. Bentley visited us for a couple of days during Christmas. Jet was absolutely fascinated by him. He showed no fear of him. He LOVED chasing him around, but not in a manner that was acceptable inside the house. This resulted in both of them needing to be on a leash the entire visit. :( Neither were very happy about that, but Jet did settle and observe from a distance without too much pouting and whining.
Jet also practiced his good manners around my grandmother who was visiting. We only caught him one time trying to sneak in a "here up" without being asked. It was really important that he listened to me right away around her because she has really think skin and blood and bruises VERY easily. One swipe of a puppy paw could have been very bad. He also walked very politely around her in the house so I didn't have to worry about him knocking her over or tripping her. (Although, I still watched VERY closely!)
