Donna and I are enrolled in a Basic Obedience Course these couple of months and we’ve attended three lessons so far.
You would think we would breeze through the course since Donna is a smart dog and pretty well-behaved when it comes to listening to instructions. But everything we’ve done so far was pretty organic and on the spur of the moment when it comes to teaching her new things.
Consistency is really something difficult for me that I’ve got to manage since I get easily bored. Haha.
The other thing that I’ve got working against me is the weather. Thundery showers almost everyday certainly makes it difficult to do any sort of training with a thunder phobic dog.
In the video below, I’ve taken her out for our evening walk some weeks back. Besides the fun things, I was trying to work her through the exercises – sit, stand, down, lol – outdoors. She is already very good at sit and down to begin with, so I was working more on her stand on command :P
But here are the more fun things on video, for me at least, before she got too distracted by the thunder rambling in the distance. It was a fine day over here, except for that thunder bothering us.
From the distance. Geez!
