Thursday night it was dark and rainy, and I had just settled in for a nap, when mom picked up my leash and said 'car ride'. I thought it was a bit strange, but ok I like car rides, I will go along with this. She was stuffing plastic bags and treats into her pockets, and next thing I knew we were off to this thing called "school".
There was six other dogs there, various ages and sizes. We all checked each other out, and then we had to sit down while the trainer spoke to our pawrents for a while. Then she introduced a little square box that makes a noise when pushed; apparently it is called a Clicker - and every time we made eye contact it was followed by Click and Treat. Mom handled this pretty good, I was quite proud of how well she did for her first night, and so on the way home I insisted we stop and get mom her own treat at Starbucks.
Mom says we are going to school again next week - I hope its as fun as the first night. Click! Treat!
