Episode 7: Welcoming Chuu
Show Notes

We rescued a new puppy from our local city animal shelter! He is an 8-month-old puppy, and his name is “Chuu,” which means “kiss” in Japanese. During the past week of us welcoming him into our family gave us so many things to share with you. So, this episode is all about that! 

In this episode, we will walk you through our 7-day journey of welcoming Chuu into our family. We begin the story with how we immediately fell in love with Chuu when we first met him, and how we welcomed Chuu into our family. We discuss how we live our lives with Chuu to help teach him how to be calm in the house and with our beloved dog, Peepers. Furthermore, we talk about how we helped Peepers and Chuu to build a mutually enjoyable relationship. In the previous episodes 5 and 6, we talk about Constructional Affection. The content of this episode is an example of how we can apply Interaction Guidelines and Affection Loop to build desirable behaviors and interaction in various situations in our house routine. After 2 or 3 days of our day-to-day interaction with Chuu, he learned to be calmer in the house and the relationship between Peepers and Chuu has blossomed into a wonderful big brother/little brother relationship.
