Well, we had our first class today and Bailey was really good!
There are two other couples, one has a 5 month old hyper
LaberDoodle and the other has a 4 month old yipping
mop looking (purebred) thing.... forgive me, I do not know how they spell the one breed or what they called the other. LOL
Bailey was the only one that already knew how to sit on demand! We were SO proud of him! The trainer was impressed that he already knew the command at only 9 weeks old. We have been working with him ever since he was 6 weeks. He also knows "come" but since the room was huge and there were strangers
the mommy didn't introduce him to, he wasn't about to budge! lol
The trainer suggested getting Bailey a collar that he is to wear at all times. This will relieve some of his aggression towards having his harness and possibly clothing put on him. So, we got him a very cute collar and matching leash!!! We went to a different store and found these, sadly they didn't have a matching harness too, so we have to keep the ugly blue one for now.
We got him a name & address tag to match his collar, its kinda big on him at the moment.... but he is adjusting to it, right now its a chew toy *sighs*. The trainer said to put a bell on him (to know where he is at all times) but the tag jingles enough. I did put a bell on his harness that he will wear outside and to classes, and a bell on his leash. So, people will hear him coming! At home though, he doesn't need a bell!
Next week we will WOW them even more, because tomorrow I am boiling up some yummy chicken and Bailey is going to learn lots of things this week!
He was the best behaved this week, I want to keep him shining in all the glory for all 8 weeks! hehehe
Oh, he also came out of his shell toward the end of the night and even instigated play with the smaller mop doggie. My big boy!!!!!
Bailey NOT amuzed by his new precious collar! Forgive my paint shirt.... lol
