It’s times like this picture that you’d never know what a complete mental freak this dog can be. She looks so sweet, so innocent. Possibly even well behaved.
We had someone come out in January to do a training evaluation and then we put the house on the market and decided to wait until we were settled into the new house before we picked that training thought back up.
So I think we’re finally (well beyond) settled. Sept 6 is going to be her first day of training. Unfortunately the guy that came out to do the evaluation doesn’t work with this group any more. He’s off training police dogs now, so I think that says pretty good things about the level of training provided by this company.
I have scheduled her first two training sessions and hope to schedule the final four when the guy comes out to the house. I have to admit I’m a little worried because during the evaluation (7 months go) I was under the impression that you set a weekly schedule for this, but this trainer seemed surprised that I wanted to schedule more than one lesson at a time. Maybe he figures you need time to make sure you’ve mastered the first lesson before the second? I’m not sure.
So anyways I’m pretty excited about the whole thing! The thought of some day being able to take the dogs to a dog park and not have Layne act like she wants to eat each and every other dog she sees is basically awesome. So much awesome.
