Lola & I went back to class today & it was fantastic!! I remember the day when things just clicked for Penny & I. It was if she figured out how to read my mind & everything just fell in line. That was the day I really became interested in training dogs. When your hard work starts to pay off & you and your dog become a team. It's really amazing.

Well, today was that day for Lola & I. She was really focused on learning & paying attention to what I was asking of her. We haven't done a whole lot of work on stay...nothing consistant anyway (I use Wait a whole bunch more and she's great w/ that)...but we were doing Sit Stays & you could see she was really trying to figure out what I was asking her to do. Our problem is she doesn't want to sit long. She doesn't get up, she lies down. So we'll just have to continue to work at it.

This is the fun stuff!!!
