Puppy Class

Well it was the fourth Tuesday of the month today and that means....Puppy Class! Our Puppy Class Instructor (the amazing Ann!) decided that this time we would work on walking across different surfaces. So she had people bring in different objects and things for the puppies to walk over. We had some bubble wrap, construction paper type stuff, grates, and garbage bags. Then we used some of the fold up tables in the room and some of the chairs as well as different surfaces. Nuri loved them all!! She didn't have a problem with them, and she actually liked to snuggle in with some of them!
She thought that laying down and hogging the garbage bags was a lot of fun.

We also worked on some basic commands such as Sit, Down, and things like that. Also a lot of distractions were brought in. They do love to chase after those tennis balls! Nuri in particular is very distracted by tennis balls, or really anything else that happens to go past her. I've been working hard to get her to pay attention, but it's like she just spaces out for a little bit and doesn't want to work. Oh, my lovely little blond....

Tired and wiped out from the day.

Puppy AT report comes through for Wilara tomorrow!!!!!!!! I can't wait!! I'll post it as soon as I can!

  1. That's such a great idea for a training session--walking on all those surfaces. I'm going to have to try that one at one of our meetings. Thanks for sharing the idea!
