A Little About Yamper But A Lot About Love

You’re probably asking yourself who is a Yamper & what is it?! Well you see Yamper is my 4 month old Pembroke Welsh Corgi, who is adorable as the day is long! This post is a little about Yamper but A Lot About Love. 

We love going on snifaris (a sniff safari) because not only does he get smell training but he also gets a little tired because his nose is working so hard. I let him lead the these snifaris so he’s not pulling on the lead and I’m not fighting him.

When we can’t go on our snifaris he gets to play with his snuffle mat. 10 minutes digging around in his snuffle mat is like 1 hour of running and all ya do is drop a few treats inside while he searches for them. This also tires him out but he also gets small rewards to using his senses. 

He loves being outside although at first he was a little cautious but still curious. He loves being in the ground (he’s 4 months  old) and until he got his 3rd round of shots he’d never been put on the ground. He takes in the smells and often the taste of the grass, which he’s learned from his older brother is great to roll around in.

He’s a vocal little guy and his vet believes he’s going to be a smaller corgi than most as of right now he weighs 5.2lbs. At his age he’s supposed to be much bigger. The vet is satisfied with his progress because when I took him in for his first vet visit he was only 2.4lbs. So now he gets fed 5 times a day, he gets a free training treat or a little piece of his food when we’re training, he also gets different filled Kong’s that he gets so excited about. Those things are a lifesaver, when he’s bored. We’ve got 3 of them!

All of his puppy products we use and love are here: 

The fox has saved the day so we bought him 2 foxes and a squirrel. He loves to fling them in the air.

The wipes are great for between baths, they’re all natural and unscented, they keep him from smelling like a dog and they make him so soft.

This Kong a is tiny bit big for him but he loves it more than the other 2 small ones we got him. We can also play around with him ad make playtime a little more fun while he gets treats and we bond.

This little caterpillar is a trooper, Yamper lots the chew on him at least a few days a time.

He has 3 of the baby blue Kongs as they are for puppies. I fill them with the squeeze which we have in pepperoni and sweet potato To fill the Kong when we add a few treats or a little bit of his food. They keep him bust for about an hour, which is great time to get things done.

The snuffle mat is for interactive play you can add a few treats for or a little food. The dog gets ti sniff around while he digs a little in the mat. Because their noses are so strong this is a great way to get a little smell therapy too.

The NylaBone is another life saver, which has kept Yamper from chewing EVERYTHING. When we see him going for something he’s not supposed to have we tell him no and give him this bone. These other teething toy is great too as he plays with it for half an hour or so when I he gets it. He has so many toys we put them in a basket and after him being out for an hour or two every one of his toys are on the floor out of the basket.

He’s a crazy boy with so much energy and adventure, which is why he can go outside now. He helped me plant my garden a few months ago. He’s a great dog but not a really good helper.

I hope you’ve enjoyed reading about our newest family member. Do you have a pet? What’s your favorite thing to do with them? Yes, I’m nosey I like to get into peoples business. 😛
