Puppy Class

We took a ride in my new dog crate on wheels out to the Animal Protection Society this afternoon. First I had a run in the dog park to get out some energy. Then it was on to puppy class. Barbara just started teaching a new junior puppy class at the APS. This is a very important class that all puppies should get their people to take them to. They learn proper socialization, basic skills and tricks and how to convince their people to give them lots of treats!

The puppies are so cute but very silly. Here are pictures of some of them.


Copper, a handsome Vizsla puppy.



Grace is a very sweet puppy.



Here is Lulu, the Beagle. She is the smallest in the class.



Puppy socialization time in class.



Grace, Louie and Viva getting to know one another.

Sometimes the puppies are very distracted. This little Akita puppy, Akiko, did not notice that her person dropped a treat on the floor. I noticed it however, and I stole it right out from under her nose!



After Puppy Class we had Drill Team practice where we are learning a new routine. It's been a busy evening and I need to get my rest.

Riley thanks you for his well wishes = )
Thank you for posting pics of all of those cute puppies - my favorite is the beagle, of course.

My mom wants you to know that she would never knowingly give us chocolate, or macadamia nuts for that matter as she is a vet and knows better. Unfortunately, she is also absent minded and completely forgot that she had chocolate in her running bag!!

Puppy Class looks like fun! I never got to go as there aren't any around here, but #1 says I am very well socialised and generally very-well behaved anyway! Still, it would be fun to try agility training. Maybe #1 can look again...

Your Friend,

What a bunch of adorable puppies. My neighborhood has a whole bunch of new puppies and it would be nice if they offered a class like yours here where I lived. Those young pups could learn a few manners.

Callie needs one of those classes. Maybe she wouldn't beat on Louie and I so much..
