Maltipoo – Shoonik

Good morning Marleen, good morning Wannes,

Many thanks for keeping in touch with us through your emails, calls and videos ! This is of great help and sooooo reassuring in getting us to welcome, train and do the right thing for Shoonik (our little maltipoo)!

He has been with us 36 hours and he is already comfortable at home : has a dedicated sleeping area next to the kitchen , an additional basket next to us in the TV room, some little toys . I bought him a toy to bite on as he is biting everything (including our finger/) but he gets very excited and barks when frustrated not to put him he strings out (see the picture )He gets out every 2 hours (first at 5 am last at 10.30 pm), eats and drinks, even did his first stool outside ! He is a great little dog , talks a lot and bites a lot but me try gently to tell him not too.

A question to you : He often putting his legs around ours , an does movement with his hips (similar to a sexual arousal)

What should we do to spot this behavior?

I’d like to thank particularly Wannes you bay is of great support. We are following all your advices and they work really well ! You are the best , really ! Shoonik being my first dog , I really needed your guidance ! Thanks

Kindest regards

Armen and Ilona
