Doggy Class today and I’d been looking forward to it as it’s been a fortnight since our first.
It all went pretty well. Maya still pulls at first, but I am getting the hang of ‘checking’ her and we have made definite progress with the socialising issue. All owners went in whatever direction they wanted so there was no pattern as to when dogs would come into close proximity. Wait and Leave were the instructions of the day.
Making Maya sit when I stopped wasn’t a problem as she does that anyway as a rule.
I think she’s in love though with a black and white border collie called George. He’s a year old and the two greeted each other, so wanting to play. We haven’t progressed to that yet. However, our instructor saw a definite improvement, but I know the weak link in her training is me. Nothing to do with strength just getting it across to her that I may be her best buddy, but I’m in charge, not her, so that’s something I have to work on.
The STAY exercise in the garden has also paid off.
It’s a sunny day again, but the wind is still cold and was howling pretty much all night.
Quiet day for us now and hopefully try and catch up with some sleep as both of us are shattered. We all dozed yesterday afternoon so no reason why that shouldn’t work today.
I was up early to let Maya out, then grabbed a blanket to settle in the lounge where Hubby was. He was up and about at his normal time, then told me to have an extra half hour. As it turned out, he lost track of time and let me sleep until 9!
