Lily and I had our first puppy class on Thursday at PetCo. It actually went quite well. There are about 20 puppies in our class. I'd say it's a good thing I am using this class for socialization purposes more so than training because lots of puppies means lots of distractions!
Lily was bigger than all but 2 of the the other dogs. Most of the puppies are tiny little things and Lily LOVED them...but by loved I mean she wanted to play but kept running over the top of them. She is used to playing with 2 full grown pitts (about 65-70 lbs. each) so she's usually the baby. The little toy poodle to our left and the yorkie to our right did not quite match up! Oh well, at least she gets some experience with all sizes!
But she did good. I think she was one of the few pups that didn't pee, poop, or throw-up in class
And she paid close attention when doing the "Watch Me" command. Of course at home I have her doing sit, down, stay, watch me, up, off, come, and shake. She's pretty consistent except for stay and come...heaven help us if something more interesting comes along, which it inevitably always does!
Anyhow, just wanted to share our experiences!
