The American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior (AVSAB) thinks it is vital that all puppies get trained. I do too. Ambrose is bad enough as he is. If Barbara wasn't training him I don't want to even imagine how bad he would be. Barbara started teaching a new Junior Puppy class the other night. Of course I went to demonstrate and Ambrose came too. The puppies are pretty cute but they are all very silly
Ambrose made friends with a Lewellyn Setter named Chief.
They practiced doing their sits.
My boyfriend Trotter's special person Chris came with their new Golden Retriever puppy named Scout. Poor Trotter. Now he will be neglected the way I am while Chris spends all her time with this new puppy. I have a great idea. Trotter can come to live with me and I will send Ambrose over to Chris to live with Scout. Then neither Trotter or I will have to deal with icky puppies.
Ambrose gets lots of training at home. Barbara takes him out into the woods to climb over logs and to practice his obedience. She says it will make him confident and strong. I think that he is too confident and strong already. He has tried to put his paws on my shoulders, the little brat!
He climbs over logs.
He crawls under branches.
When he isn't looking at her, Barbara will hide behind a tree and call him.
Ambrose races to her and gets bits of hot dogs. This is a great game to help with the recall. I love to play hide 'n seek.
Here is a photo of the two of us. You can see how big he is getting.
Now we are off to play bitey face. I've been tagged for a game and received an award. We'll get them up in the next day or so.
