He was hanging around outside the grounds at the Orange Empire Dog Club facility when I arrived for a nose work workshop. He just hung around outside the fence for several hours, but eventually he wandered inside while we were working dogs. Not really having any options, we called animal control and put him in a crate while we continued our workshop. At the end of the day, animal control hadn’t showed up and we didn’t know what to do. When I called Jack to tell him what was going on, he said to bring him home for the night. Ziggy is now a part of the family.
Ziggy is a very happy puppy. Very focused and coordinated and extremely food motivated, he is a joy to train. So far his only downside, is temper tantrums when we try to do his nails, examine his feet or him mouth for what he considers to be too long. He’s doing better, but We still have a way to go on fixing that.
Ziggy got to play at the Nevada City NW1 trial on January 23, 2016. He did a very nice job, no placements, but he did receive a Pronounced on Interior and Vehicles. He has also been training in agility and is coming along nicely.
