    Default Who says Bullies can't be trained?!!

    I'm usually posting when Winston is doing something crazy, but I actually want to praise him... Yesterday in puppy class the trainer put him in a down/stay & placed a treat on each paw. She then had him do a watch me, and as he was salivating he DID IT!!! He didn't take the treats until she released him to take it... I was in SHOCK!!! Of course the real test will be if I can recreate this magic at home... LOL

    Yep. The funny thing is when we are in the house she is perfect with it but when we are outside all bets are off. Lol

    That's awesome Winston Mia did great at puppy school too. The trainer was so impressed with how fast she picked things up~ except "stay". Agree with @Marine91 for outside of the home. Too much excitement I guess? Oh them smart, stubborn bullies

    True but she will eventually get it. Her loose leash walking is awesome and getting better around other dogs while in pet stores.
