Life with Lycan

Lycan was exhausting to train. He fought everything every step of the way and I always ended up feeling like an incompetent boob. He also would seemingly forget things as soon as he learned them, and even walking him could wear me out, so I finally gave up and sent him to a training center for 30 days. I figured the experts would have no problems getting him into shape. I called yesterday to check up on him.

“Hi,” I said, “I’m calling about Lycan. How’s his training going?”

Long silence, then, in a tone of utter exhaustion:

“My Lord, that dog’s hard headed.”


I fell much better now.

About three weeks. When I dropped him off, I warned them he could be...difficult, and they assured my that if he seemed to be having problems learning then in the last week they would increase his daily training to twice as many sessions per day, just to make sure. The trainer told me they already started doing that, about three weeks ahead of the normal schedule. Fortunately the training comes with a lifelong guarantee. They may be seeing him a lot over the next few years.

Is Lycan the puppy you found? I'm trying to remember... I know you have a few dogs? Right? Well I'm thinking he is loving the extra attention from the trainers. Really he is just a smarty pants and just likes to see everyone work harder. Lol!! Or could be wrong.

Naw, Tasker is the new guy. Mr "I'm going to snuggle right next to you and breathe in your ear" dog. Lycan is the one that was originally taken to the pound because his owner just couldn't take it anymore.
