I started class on Saturday. There were only 3 of us and I was the biggest doggie in the class! We are also all black dogs. I was good and introduced myself to both Ben and to Mitzi and made sure I gave them each equal time during our 10 minutes of socialization time. I went between them because neither of them were making a move. Finally Ben gave me a play bow but it was too late and we were back with our pawrents.
I'm not real sure about this "watch me" stuff and I don't like to sit. I either stand up or I lie down. Nothing half way about me, BOL. We haven't been very good with the homework this week, Duncan tries to hog all the attention. He knows all this stuff and shows me up. Mum tries to ignore him, but the big lug is too cute. I'll let you know what happens this week at class.
Bye for now!
Awww, Hammy! I bet you are gonna blow all the other dogs outta the water by the end of your class. :o)
Yep, like Ella barked, you will be the star student!
Hey, does your Mom use some Very Tasty tidbits of treats? She needs to use something super yummy to get you motivated to Sit. Tiny bits of hot dog or some other soft tiny snacks are good to use.
You gonna be alright Hammy. My mama had a hard time wif me too, cuz I's not "treat motivated". I's "play motivated". We would practise at home wif my toys an den goes to skool an usea treats. I did good--you will do good too.
Pay attention, Hamish-- sitting gets you goodies!!
Yeah, sometimes doing all those tricks can pay out in treats!
