A First for the Family
Early Saturday morning, we loaded up & took a drive to Morehead. Pauley was the only dog with us, & I think he thought we were off to the vet's office. What a surprise he was in for! We went to The Tin Woof Inn for Pauley's first obedience lesson! We have never taken any of our dogs to training before & were inspired to do so after reading many of the blogs we frequent. We were tickled that Pauley listened to the instructor right away (we sometimes have trouble getting his attention away from oh birds, butterflies, flowers & other assorted items). He did wonderful on "watch me" "come" & "sit", but we were unable to get him into the "down" position. Each time we or the instructor would try, his bottom would pop up when his head went down. Does anyone have any advice?
