I am very interested in shutz....
I am just confused as to how the whole thing works. Is it more like a club, or individual training? Do you meet one a week/month/? or do you schedule to go?
Rocky was very shy as a puppy, yes, but I have been taking him to the river (100+ college students and 20+ pups) every single day since the weather got better, and going to either petsmart, lowes, hastings, or the dog park every day (1 of the 4) for socialization. (plus our 2x-3x daily walks at the track)
He has been more confident as we have trained more in public places, and that made his barking stop completely (except for the crazy high heel lady upstairs that antagonizes him and us every day!!! <--but even that has been getting better)
He is still a bit shy, but isn't that all the reason to get him involved? To make sure that he gets over this shyness and never gets in trouble because of it?
