    Default Walter started Advanced Obedience Training Classes… Lol

    My great trainer Leah started an Advanced class on Tues nights, so I made the decision to put Wally in the class… Lol It's a small class which is great, but unfortunately 2 of the dogs have NEVER been around other doggies so it won't be much of a socialization class I REALLY don't understand why people do NOT socialize their dogs as puppies, and then wonder why their dogs can't get along w/other dogs as they get older?!! DUH…

    Anyhoo… I told Leah that I'm WELL aware that Walter will probably be the WORST student in class, but I want to expose him to as much training as possible. There is a doberman, rottweiler and some type of spaniel in the class… I honestly enjoy watching the process of training, and Walter LOVES Leah… so if he finally picks up on a couple of things that will be well worth my time. The one thing that I LOVE about her is that she KNOWS her dog breeds… she doesn't push Walter too much. She understands bullies and their stubbornness/OCD tendencies and has a TON of patience.

    We shall see how this goes… PLUS she's gonna help me get Walter on a skateboard WOO HOO!!! Lol

    I bet you will stand corrected. Walter will be the best in Class and naturally graduate at the top of his class.

    Go Walter, show them.
    Hug your bully today

    Ha that's SO FUN! We're gonna start Vader in a kindergarten class soon. It's an early obedience prep PLUS a ton of socialization with other different puppies his age! My wife really wants to continue with the training after kindergarten, even though we're both well aware that Vader may not want to cooperate quite as much!

    Let me know how it all goes! Including the skateboard!

    Um....scuse me! We had Orion in Prekindergarten class where she got to play with puppies of all sizes. (for some reason she migrated to the yorkie puppies and wanted to terrorize them. They had them behind a safety barrier because they were so little) Then we put her in regular kindergarten classes AND started her in the basic obedience classes. (which she won best listener and best trick) Still......at 4 months old she got banned from daycare because of her ability to not get along with others. They said she wasn't aggressive, just dominant.

    Some bullies were just made to rule a kingdom by themselves. (or at least I've been told)

    That is great Tracey! I think bullies can do great in class. Winnie just finished her first series of manners classes. She did very well and would have done much better if I would have practiced with her more. I found it really hard to practice with Jack in the house always wanting to get in on the fun! Winnie's favorite part of class was whe the dogs were allowed off leash to play! My main goal was for her not to maul my toddler grandsons when they come to stay and I'm happy to say she is great with them now. That may be due to training, but probably just getting older and calmer was also a factor. Can't wait to hear about Wally's progress!

    Great!! I love bullies in group classes. I think Bella and I are starting her intermediate doggie class tomorrow evening. I'm sure she'll be one of the youngest, at 6 months old. I just hope she's able to be calm around the other pups.
