    I totally agree. When we first brought her home her 9yo ridgeback sister couldn't get enough of her and they would play and chase one another. Now our ridgeback wants to be left alone as she can only take the puppiness in spurts so we needed to get socialization somewhere else.

    Thank you. The education came from the wonderful people like you and others on this site. I thought I knew a lot before finding this place and I was definitely wrong and have learned so much.

    I agree with this. Brutus loved his classes. He got to meet other dogs and it helped stop the lunging for toys he would do. He now knows that if he wants us to play with him, he has to leave his toy and sit down before we will touch it. If he isn't in the mood to listen we don't play fetch. This was really the only behavior we could not tolerate. Everything else the little bugger does is too cute. Also 10 minute time outs really work. He understands that he needs to chill when we tell him he is going to get a time out.

    We put Bella in basic puppy classes, and I have to tell you that she was the WORST behaved in the class!!! I was so embarrassed she would never do the commands in front of the instructor... BUT I will say it was totally worth it in the end. I can't tell you how many times I have had to use leave it or stay and she remembered it. One time I broke a glass all over the kitchen floor & the dogs ran in and I yelled STAY at the top of my lungs, and to my surprise she did it!!! I'm putting Winston in class next month... Good Luck

    I'm starting to have issues w/my 2 dogs... I have Roxie who is a 9 year old boxer, and then we had Bella the Momma & Winston. Winston would drive Bella nuts, and now that Bella is gone he is going after Roxie. She puts up w/it for awhile, but I can tell that she gets tired of it. It's also heartbreaking... Winston used to snooze by his Momma & now wants to sleep w/Roxie. She's not interested, and I feel so bad for Winston

But having your pet learn basic obedience is a plus.

    I agree 1000% with the comment above!!!

    I kissed a Bulldog and I loved it.....there is nothing better in this world than a Senior Bulldog.

    Ramsay just graduated his Kinderpuppy program tonight! He started at 12 weeks and in 6 weeks has really shown progress! I think that no matter how much you do in class, what is key is practice practice practice at home. The puppy classes just add the extra challenge of focusing on you in a distracting environment. It is great for socialization too!

    We have two bully puppies and we've had no issues with training. They have both responded greatly to positive training methods using the clicker and treats.
