Quizz’s Training Log

Celhaus Question Me or Not

Miss Red from the QQ Litter went to my good friend, Laurie Schwabauer, to be trained as a service dog so we’ll have one ready (or nearly ready) when people contact me wanting one of my dogs for a service dog.   Laurie is keeping a log of Quizz’s training and sends me weekly updates.

Newest entries are on top. Scroll down for earlier entries.

Tuesday 6/11/19 (Day 1)

Traveled to Sheridan to pick up puppy from Cel’s shortly before 1:00 p.m. It was a very hard decision between “Miss Yellow” and “Miss Red”, both excellent candidates but finally decided on Miss Red. After saying our hard goodbyes to Grandma Cel and “Red’s” mother, “Mercy”, we loaded in the pickup for our long trip back home to Sundance, 2 ½ hours east of Sheridan.

Miss Red traveled very well home. She found her comfort spot and curled up next to Bill and slept most of the way. We discussed lots of Q names on the trip home and Bill named her “Quizz” Wasn’t sure at the time but it really does fit her as she is always investigating and trying new things.  (Cel’s note:  we chose her registered name to go with her call name:  Celhaus Question me Or Not)) 

P.M.  Introduced to Kennel building, potty area, 6 dogs, house, and crate.

The NuVet people had tried to recruit me for their breeder program for several years but it wasn’t until I was getting frustrated at my inability to get a soft, shiny coat on Quasi that I decided to try their products. I finally told the NuVet people I would never recommend any product without trying it first, and that I’d like to try their NuVet Plus on Quasi. They sent a free two-month supply and at the end of the trial period I was seeing enough improvement that I signed up for their breeder program.   [READ MORE]
