Well we survived the first class! Now I wouldn't say we were the favorites but... we certainly weren't the 'least prepared'! Here's the play by play! Maybe I'll get real pics one day... until then I played with clipart!
I plan on getting to class early... insert troublesome GPS... we arrive 2 minutes early!
BIG RED DOG sniffs..and almost knocks over Charlie as we walk in.. Charlie is unfazed... well... more like really freakin distracted by the 7 strangers! BIG RED DOG is named Charlie! (First Friend!)
We are praised for having a chain collar that fits correctly... then converse with V.E.T. who brought a b-e-a-utiful Dobe pup named Bree, and was proud of Charlie for acting nervous but.. normal? haha
Drill Master (aka Teacher Lady) comes to help us with the Sit... Charlie growls. I recieve a STERN talking to about my puppy's aggression :( Then Charlie is literally drug... i mean he layed down and she pulled him on his belly... away from me to practice Sit with Drill Master. Amazingly he listens! And accepts pets from her!
|Like this... but hey.. it worked!|
It wasn't all downhill from there though.. we were praised for our loose leach walking and the other pups showed us up...
B.R.D. Charlie gleefully pulled his loving master to the floor trying to make another friend.
|Kinda like this...|
5 of the 9 dogs in class pooped or peed (AMAZED Charlie wasn't one of them!!)
A pit-mix tried to eat Charlie.. only Charlie.. and by eat I mean pulled his owners along
|Nom Nom Aussie Pants!|
At the end of class Drill Master walked up to us again.. no growling! :)
So all in all I was VERY happy with Charlie. He tried SO HARD his 'Sits' were precise and his walking was very good! And he really seemed.. ok.. in the enviornment! Nervous but not any more so than some of the other puppies! YAAY! We can't wait for next week!
|I iz concentwated oh so hard! I WILL be a good school puppy!|
