Go to the Bottom of the Class

So we started obedience training today. Jaz is not only the oldest dog in the class, but also the least obedient. While all of the other dogs listened to their owners, sat on command, followed "leave it" and "wait," Jaz whined, jumped in my lap, and generally acted like a pussy.

Loose leash walking? Not even in her Universe. According to her, it never will be.

She wouldn't even take treats from me. And she was downright rude to the trainer. She even peed on the floor while we were practicing the loose leash walking.

It's official. I have a problem child. I foresee lots of homework in our future.

Oh Gosh! Sounds like back 9 yrs ago when I got Roxie our schnauzer. I just wasn't strict enough with her & the teacher started making cracks about how we both need S & M. I never went back. Consequently Roxie is STILL so very naughty, barks constently & she walks me. Keep trying.

LOL is right Francesca. She's doing better though. We did some loose leash walking last night and I'm just going to have to spend a lot of time standing in one place and rewarding her for returning to me after she strains on the leash.

We always love them no matter what, just like kids. Right Sandra?

No ritalin. Bad Nelle! ;^)

I'm not giving up KMae. Maggie was a tough one also because of her surgery during puppyhood. But with work, she ended up being great on a leash :o)

Too bad about that trainer. Obviously there are some bad ones out there. I am extremely happy that I switched.

Problem children are often the smartest in the long run.

The challenge is figuring out how to get through to them.

LOL Pat! I think you might have something there. This dog can outrun, outsmart, and control me almost every time she tries.
