13 Week Aussie Pup
Hi, I recently purchased a male 13 week Aussie pup, about 5 days ago. He is very laid back and calm. He's also very sweet. I have a couple questions however, he's a good boy, but when outside, he usually doesn't come when I call him. Yes he does follow me but if in a curious wandering mode, he won't come if I call him over. The breeder I purchased him from named him because she thought she was gonna keep him but I changed his name. I'm thinking that may be a reason he's not listening but if I call his new name, he will look and he seems to know it. Any suggestions? Will he possibly grow out of that? Or will it get better once he knows me more?
Another question is will he grow out of his laid back personality? The breeder gave me two weeks to return him, with a full refund but I just don't want to have to do that because I am already attached. I already have taken him to the vet and he is healthy.
Another question is will he get smarter as he gets older? I've already taught him sit lay down and up (from sit) but he seems out of it at times! Lol please comment! My main issue is not coming when I call him. Thanks!
