My name is Ruby.
And every pawrent, child and dog at Paw Prints Dog Training School Good Manners Class knows that MY name is Ruby.
Jimmy and I had previously graduated from Wags-to-Whiskers' obedience class, which was designed to be a "good manners class." I did well, but we were the only two dogs registered, and I wasn't exactly social to the dogs in the class after ours.
A local vet owns and is the sole instructor for Paw Prints, and my behaviorist and my vet thought that I should enroll.
To me, the whole concept of an obedience class should be that others learn to obey ME. My mom, and Dr. Schenck from Paw Prints, have different ideas.
I barked and growled at Molly, Halle Berry, Darcy, JoJo and Bambi. And once, when I was in such a tizzy about Molly, I turned and ALMOST bit my mom.
Mom was wearing capri jeans, and once when I grrrrrrrrrrred at Halle Berry, I turned, then scratched Mom's leg deeply enough to draw dripping blood.
On the "academic" side of things, I easily sat and lied-down. Stand was a new command for me. I'll do it for a morsel of hotdog, but not for a dry treat.
I assume because I was such a stellar student, we had to stay after school. Dr. Schenck recommended some reading material, that we are purchasing from Amazon.com. I may have some private sessions with Dr. Schenck, as well.
I am such a good girl. :^)
