Update From George and Mrs. Drew George and I have been attending Family Dog I class for the past six weeks. We have two weeks left until we graduate to Family Dog II which will start on the 6th of January! Over the past four weeks our new training includes “down” and “stay” as well as walking exercises such as “come around”, walking in a “heel” position, and “spinning”. This past week we learned the “Really Reliable Recall” which is an instantaneous return-to-me command. We continue to work on all of our past training and “capturing” of good behavior with the “click & treat” process that we were taught. Some of the tricks that we are capturing include a bow and dancing toes… very cute. George is socializing after each class with his new friends and has shown an eventempered consideration for the littlest dogs. We both look forward to the upcoming weeks and months of training. ~ Mrs. Drew
