Kenya's first training class

We signed up for the 8 week Puppy Course at our local Petsmart, which was $109. We started with basic commands with the use of a clicker to associate the sound of a click with a reward when she does something we want her to do. Commands we learned were-

-Watch me
-Take it/Leave it
-Let's go

Kenya did pretty well for the most part. Good thing there were only two other dogs in the class (chihuahua, and lab pup), so Kenya didn't have too many other distractions that kept her from participating. She did have trouble with the leash walking portion of the class, well only because the aisle that we got assigned to happened to be the dog food section, and we all know it's always a battle between us and that nose of their's. All in all, I think this class will be well worth it.

I've done classes at Petsmart and with an independent husband/wife team with Shiloh B. and Shasta B. - and it has helped them sooooo much. As some of you know, Shiloh B. is now a registered therapy dog and in a few months, I hope Shasta B. will also pass her evaluation for therapy dog. I do believe these classes were a great asset in achieving this. And I am always wanting the Beaglebratz to participate in anything where they either have a chance to learn something new or just kind of practice what they already learned - it is good for all of us.
