Puppy Class

I put Maggie back in Puppy class. Well, it's not exactly a puppy class, but it is a novice obedience class and there are several puppies in the class. Maggie used to really love obedience and she even has one CD leg (from the one and only time I put her in the Novice ring), but she stresses under pressure very easily and the ring is not a fun place for her. So we are back in beginner class. I am not sure if she will ever get back in the ring, but I want her to see obedience as something fun - she used to have fun.
Maggie enjoyed Monday's class. I am keeping everything very short and playing with her lots. I am not asking for perfection - I am just rewarding her efforts and trying to make her know that as long as she tries hard, she is the best obedience dog in the world.


  1. i thought she was REALY going to a puppy class, then my question was going to be, can kaleb come? LOL Glad Magz is having fun!

  2. Maggie is so pretty! Glad she enjoyed the class! I am putting Scout in classes after the new year. She will be close to 8 mos old - hopefully I'm not starting too late. I had to get her thru her numerous UTI infections, etc.
