Thank you for
Hello, I’m Abigail, Irvine’s Puppy Walker. Welcome to his second Pupdate.
I’m pleased to say Irvine is doing fantastically well. Since you last heard from me, his lead work has improved, with the help of lots of praise and treats! He’s also much more confident in his own company, as before he used to whine for attention. Now he’s happy to lie down and snooze with his big teddy.
Exploring the world
We’ve been busy getting out and about, to get Irvine used to lots of different environments. It’s really important for Irvine to experience a variety of places so he’s comfortable and confident wherever he may go with his future owner. We’ve been on lots of transport such as trains and buses, on which Irvine is a complete star. He’s very happy to curl up under the seat, out of everyone’s way, and he has a habit of licking people’s feet!
We recently went on trip to Westfield in London which was really busy. Irvine was brilliant and coped well with the crowds of people. He gets so much attention when he’s out and loves meeting new people. We even met some of his sponsors when we were fundraising for Guide Dogs.
Irvine is such a friendly pup and he’s super cuddly too. I honestly can’t say a bad word about him. He loves his food and will always choose it over toys! He’s very sociable and willing to learn too. We play a game with his big ted, where we hide it and then Irvine has to find him.
Irvine’s a very playful pup and loves running around with his best friend Mitty. They go on walks together to the park and she’s great at bringing out his confidence, as he tends to keep quite close to us when out on free runs. But with Mitty there he’ll go bounding off into the distance with her! Importantly for his future owner, Irvine’s recall is amazing; he’s never had an issue with coming back when called.
I’m so proud of Irvine and how much progress he has made so far. We’re just getting him used to his blue puppy walking jacket now as he’s sometimes hesitant to wear it. But we’re giving him lots of encouragement and he’s doing really well.
Thank you so much for sponsoring Irvine. I can’t wait to update you on his progress in his next Pupdate in February.
