One Dog's Tail (Tale)

Obedience classes are fun!

Today my mom and HER mom took me to my first obedience class. I was kind of confused at first because the class was at the same place they picked me up from, so I wasn't sure what was going on when we got out of the van. I was glad when they didn't take me in through the big front door the way my other humans did when they left me there. Instead, I got to go around to a side door into a big room with lots of lights and people - and treats! Then some other dogs arrived and I thought they would make great playmates. I guess Mom didn't think so because she made me stay away from them and pay attention to her during the class. (It's hard for me to keep my mind on her when there are other dogs around - I just want to play with them SO badly!) I guess I wasn't the only dog with this problem because the first thing the instructor showed our humans was how to get us to pay attention to them! I know "Sit" quite well, so I wasn't sure why they wanted us to go through that, but I guess it made sense to the instructor. We also worked on "Come" which is a concept I know already unless there's something REALLY interesting to explore in the other direction, and "Good!" Mom and I have some things to work on, especially with the paying attention, but this obedience thing seems like an easy way to get treats! Anyway, we get to go back next week! I'll make sure that Mom keeps posting about our progress...

Happy tails,
Callie
