Lazy Days

Hello, everyone! Pax is coming along well with all his commands. He has been having a lot of fun this week with training and down time. He loves to lay down on the bed around his trainers while they play cards. He is good with being around lots of people and loves to walk right beside you when you’re walking him around to see stuff or go outside. He loves to run around with people or just by himself. And when you let him out of his kennel, the first thing he will do is find a bed to lie down on!

Special boy

This week has been a special week for a special boy. Pax’s trainers allowed him to roam around the dorm to get acclimated to his new temporary home and Pax enjoyed every minute of it. He went around to different bunks and kennels just to say hello to the other inmates and hounds. He received hugs, kisses and treats for being such a good boy.

As for his training, Pax is progressing nicely. He listens and pays attention when it’s time to get down to business. He doesn’t mind a little down time, lounging around on his favorite bed after a hard days work.

It's bed time!

Pax is a very, very special dog. He is always down for belly rubs and treats. This week, his training team has been spending extra time with him to learn what makes him comfortable. Pax has adjusted so much better than when he first arrived. He also really loves his name and responds well to it, which makes it super easy to teach him!

He loves the bed – even when it’s time to go on the dog run, he is like, “do I reaallllly have to get off my nice big comfy bed?!” It makes all the inmate trainers laugh – these lazy dogs are so entertaining! Pax is taking retirement to the max!

Pax is on "Stay"cation.

Pax has truly made progress this week. He is starting to open up more and more each day as he adjusts to his new environment at the Second Chance Greyhounds Academy of higher learning. He enjoys the copany of other dogs and inmates.

As far as training goes…Slow and steady wins the race. He is making progress on his “stays’ on his bed. His trainer will leave him there and walk around or watch tv. All the while Pax stays on his bed. Good boy Pax! His trainer is working on “stay”, “let’s go”, “hurry” and “kennel” this week and will introduce more next week. See ya soon!

Captivating eyes

Pax’s trainer immediately fell in love with this gorgeous guy! Like most greyhounds when they arrive, Pax was a little bit nervous, but still curious. He expected Pax to adjust slowly and get comfortable within a few days, and he did! He is leash walking like a natural and his trainer believes that he will be a quick learner. Pax’s coat is so beautiful, white with a unique brown brindle. And his eyes are the most capitvating feature of all! A deep, fiery amber that longs for you to stare into them forever. 

Pax is a quick learner and his trainer managed to get him to sit on the third attempt! During week one! His trainer says he is excited to spend this training session with such an amazing greyhound, and he can’t wait to see what the next nine weeks hold!
