Yay! Lexi IS old enough for obedience training!!

We didn't think she would be old enough for the local classes (they have to be 5 months) but then I sat down with the calendar and realized that she will actually be only 3 days short of five months, and I don't think anyone will quibble over a few days! I'm so relieved because she really needs some real training with other dogs around. I just hope she doesn't get kicked out the first night, she is developing an aggression towards strange dogs for some reason and I'm not sure why. She's fine with my parents dogs, but any dog she doesn't know she freaks out. I also hope at least 8 people sign up for the class or they won't have it and I'll be back to square one!


Very Proud Mommy to Maddie (human) Lexi (German Shepherd) and Bella (cat)!!!!

Re: Yay! Lexi IS old enough for obedience training!!

if 8 people don't sign up for classes start your own play group. is there a dog park near you? Lexi can go there (on leash) and meet some friends. get the phone numbers of some of the people there then you can invite them to yur house for play time. maybe you can find a puppy class to attend along with your obedience classes. hopefully your aggression problem will go away with more socializing.
