Bella...Be Good: Episode 2

In Episode 2 of our Bella…Be Good video series, we talk about and show you some of the things we do on a day to day basis with Bella simply as a means to start settling her in. I like to call it going through a time period of “discovery” with her as everything is new.

She is discovering new sights, sounds, routines, distractions and we both are beginning to develop a level of trust and respect for each other. I don’t start anything too heavy or formal with these pups until we get to know each other and I start discovering a little more about her personality and begin to learn to read her and anticipate her next moves effectively.
