Today we went for a walk and worked on watch me's. When we got home we went to doctors and I comforted Mom while she got upsetting news. I continued comforting her while she did some labs. We went into order a takeout lunch and returned home. I missed my brother and sister when we were gone. When my Dad got home he took pictures of my family and me which you will see on my page.

Went and seen my psychiatrist and practiced hand targeting while waiting, introduced her to Thad. She was very impressed because he just laid there and went to sleep. Then we went to the base salon and got my hair cut and Thad just laid there and slept and did not move once till it was done. We went to my husbands work after wards to show him my hair and he liked it. I went by Toni's after but she was not home so I called her and found out she was at a funeral of a old family friend in Arkansas. Went to PetSmart to get more treats. Next we went to Big Lots and he got car sick on the way. He has not been getting sick recently. I picked up some curtains for the house and other things, rain coat for Thad. Went by Critter Co and Krogers got some string cheese to for a training treat. I am looking for that ultimate treat to train with.
When we returned home we practiced with the string cheese and it is that ultimate training treat. We worked on sit stays with all my dogs. Also I introduced place and drop it. He is catching on real fast to everything I have introduced so far. Man is he smart. I always knew poodles where smart but this is great and he has a wonderful disposition. He barley barks and does not fight with other dogs. We practice what all we learn every day for at least 10 to 15 mins and sometimes longer. When this puppy class is through we have to wait till he is 6 mons to take the beginners class and will just take another puppy class in the mean time to continue socialization with other dogs which has gone good so far. Plus it will give us a chance to polish what we have learned before the more advanced class. I would like to take the CGC by the time he is a yr old so we can start on task & work training. I shall see how fast or slow he picks up on things in the mean time.

We went over to Toni&Thumper's today to for me to help paint and to help Toni teach Thumper some commands. I had treats in my pocket so I showed Toni how to do the sit command with hand signals. I also took the opportunity to take advantage of my own training time with sit, down, stand and stays. The dogs played together it was so funny because Thumper is a long haired chihuahua and he crawled on his back and displayed his dominance of being 7yrs old. Later we went to supper at a sandwich shop were Thad laid under the table so quietly. He is just so darn well behaved so young.

Today we went out with another PSD team Toni&Thumper. We went to Goodwill, Big Lots, BX on base and while we were there we ate dinner. Thad was so well behaved it was unreal. It was so not crowed the places we went so he did not get over whelmed.(which was good) He did bark once though and quickly got quiet and started working again when I said no your working. When we got home we worked on stays which we learned this wk at obedience school. He was so tired after his day he played very little and slept the rest of the night.

We went to the vets this morning to take care of his ears he has a yeast infection there. He has gained a couple of pounds since we were there Monday. He did, however, get sick on his way to class last night and on the way to the vets today.
We worked this morning on sits, downs and will work on stands this evening.

 

Puppy class

This puppy class went rather fast on showing us sit, down, stand, and heel. There are three more classes then we start beginners at 6mons. They don't use hand signals but I do and also use clicker with no complaints. Thad was sitting already and working on down, also said he has a fantastic heel(I only have him walk at my left at this time) and stand is going to be something new to him, plus they don't do watch me and we do.
He had his first hair cut today and it looked really good. I watched from afar so he did not know I was there. A little trouble with the face but all and all he did not complain and gave the girl kisses.
