It's not Judith Light or Tony Danza.
Mrs Runner and I have just started Obedience Classes with Otis. Training our dog is something I was pushing from the day we started talking about getting one. i did not want to be one of these people that constantly apologize and make excuses for their dogs. My one excuse I do use and I believe it is the exception is 'He is still a puppy'. At Six months old (today)He is a spastic, chewing, jumping, put everything in his mouth, pain in the ass sometimes. With that said, puppies become dogs and they are dogs a lot longer than they are puppies. When engaged he will sit, stay, lay down and fetch and drop the ball at your feet. The flip side is when he is off the hook you would have a better chance and same results trying to give the same commands to the vacuum cleaner. Class is once a week for a hour plus with homework.
We have to train with him 2 times a day for 10 minutes a day every 2 days adding a twist or new move into the training. Our Instructor seems to be no nonsense. If you are not progressing with your training or miss a class without making it up that week (it is that progressive) we will not be able to re-take or brush up on your training in the future if we do not put in the time now. So who is the Boss? Karen Decker @ P.U.P.S Dog Obedience Training
We are all in training and I'm looking forward to having a good time training and learning everything I can since Otis is gonna be with me for a long time.
