Every dog needs a job and needs to feel good about themselves, just like people do!
Tyler's second semester came to a close on Dec. 23rd and he learned so much! Some of the things included backing up until his feet touch a raised surface (you can practice with a phone book); dropping a treat and having the dog stay until you say "okay," doing a Figure 8 around obstacles, and running through a tunnel! Tyler is just learning how to run through weave poles, and will continue on in the third semester to master it.

It's amazing how proud I am of little Tyler. When I practice at home with him every night after dinner, Dolly, our Weimaraner joins in! She's learned to do figure 8's around obstacles, go "upstairs." "downstairs." Stay for dropped treats until I say "okay." and more. She learns at home right with Tyler (as Franklin, our 10 year old Dachshund watches).
Here are some pictures from Tyler's training class!

Tyler returns for the third semester on January 7th!
