Hi everyone, it’s Walter here! For most of the summer mom and I went to training class at a local recreation center. It was lots of fun and I got to make some new friends. At first I was a bit nervous since I had never gone anywhere with just mom, but the trainer and my class mates were so nice I forgot all about Millie and dad not being with us.
Mom didn’t take any pictures during our 7 weeks at class. Something about needing to concentrate on training me and not worry about pictures. Each class session we were allowed some play time and boy did we have fun. Our last class was a real blast. Unfortunately one of our class mates didn’t make it,but the rest of us sure had fun.
We were moving so fast (and mom didn’t want to use the flash) that we were a bit blurry. That cute pup with me is Miss Gracie. She is a mini doodle just like Murphy & Stanley. I really loved her dad since he always had the best turkey and cheese you have ever tasted.
As a going away present and thank you to the teacher my mom made everyone a squeaky bone with their name on it. These are the medium sized ones from my mom’s Etsy shop. Of course the one in the middle is for the teacher and the bottom one was for Toby who wasn’t at our last class (Miss Fran, the teacher, said she would get the bone to Toby for us).
Cute little Gracie loved her bone and her mom assured us that she would get lots of play time with it.
I think Miss Gracie was jealous of me getting hugs from our teacher (notice the raspberry). We had a lot of fun running around and playing at the end of class. Here is a little video of all the action.
If you can’t see the video you can go here to view it.
The little pup in the video is Desi our teachers demo dog. He came to class with her a couple of times and showed us how to do some of the things we needed to learn. He was a good teacher too.
All in all I had a good time and even learned a few things from Fran at Pawsitive Behavior Dog Training. Mom and dad say I still have some things to learn, but I don’t know if I will be going back any time soon for another training class or just learn on my own with my parents and Millie helping me. Either way I still have lots of learning to do.
