Thanks! I'm hoping we both do well and learn a lot! Me more than him! I really hope this place is worth it, seems like it will be.
Tyde knows Sit, he was doing that from day one, and we've reinforced what he was doing with "sit" Lol. Anyway, he knows Sit, Down, Stay, Come, and will sometimes do Roll for my daughter's bf (Roll Tyde Roll). When we're outside however, all those go "in" the window. He will listen ocassionally. When we're playing with his ball, he will sit when I tell him to, but his recall is horrible. I am NOT very experienced with training these things, but I do understand the importance of them... (Stay/come).
I had started clicker training him, but have stopped. I was doing it wrong. It's been about 2 weeks since I've used it. The school we're going to uses them, so we will be using them again.
This class offers the after class puppy play. I definitely want to see how he will react with other dogs, other than his friend (boxer). I was discussing on another thread about his reaction to my neighbor's dog.
I wish he could "meet" formally, the neighbor's dog. At most they've been able to sniff eachother's noses for just about 2 secs before the other dog runs off to pee on something. I don't think Tyde likes it. He's never done "sniffing/investigating" the other dog, I think he wants more time, but the other dog doesn't give it to him. So he stands and stares, ignoring EVERYTHING but that other dog - including treats, ocassionally barking, etc.
