Basic Training Part I – BARCS ID# A21561474


basictraining1Years ago, I took Casey, our first dog, and Alex, our current dog for basic training, and I truly enjoyed the classes and the time I spent with my dogs doing our “homework.”  I think that living with a dog should be an enjoyable, enriching, learning experience, but we, humans, must do our part.  How?  I’d say start by enrolling your dog in a basic training class.

basictraining2Bella and I went for our first basic training class today, Saturday, and to be honest, all I was thinking as I was driving to that class was, “Please, don’t let her be the worst dog/student in that class.  I’m not asking for much, am I?”  Well, to my surprise she did great.  Although everything around her was new, dogs, people, location, etc., she was able to focus and did almost every exercise right.  She also met other people including children and got a couple of compliments from the trainer for doing such a good job.  To say that I was over the moon would be an understatement.

Anyway, Bella and I were given homework to do so we’ll be busy working on the following: recall, sit, down, push-ups, and one trick that I forgot what it was called, sorry about that.  Have a great weekend.
