    Default 1st Obedience Class Tomorrow!

    Huzzah! Loeka is going to his first obedience class tomorrow evening. Little does he know what he's in for ; ) Well, I've never been to obedience school for either humans or animals so no doubt I will learn heaps as well.

    I feel dorky for being so excited but I hope it'll be good fun. The one thing is that I hope he doesn't get too excited and want to play with all the other dogs. I was thinking of getting there early (I need to buy a new collar anyway) and so we can take a walk around the grounds. But I was wondering if I should take him out for a quick walk before going to the club? Would that make him too tired?

    At any rate, I hope we can turn this little furdude (the one trying to eat the purebred beagle!!!) into an awesomely trained dog that will heel perfectly and make me sandwiches ; )

    p.s. I swear these two dogs are besties and usually they do not try to each other.

    My recommendation - aim to show up early for meet and greet, and to sort out any admin stuff like paying and name tags if you need.

    And always ask before you let your dog sniff another. Traditionally "Is your dog friendly?", "can we say hello?" are good.

    Thanks again for the helpful advice.

    The session ended up being cancelled so now I'm forced to wait another week : (

    Hi Loeka

    That's too bad. Too wet, I'm guessing. If only we had sessions cancelled for that. The first three morning classes this year (Feb) were cancelled because it was too HOT.

    So have you got a treat bag you can tie around your waist and dispense treats with great speed? I still use them to lure Frosty into doing what I want.

    Tonight at Agility, it was her tug rope toy that got her over all the jumps, off lead, nice and tidy, the way a piece of roast beef didn't. She's used to jumping for the toy but not the treats. So go figure.
