Back to School

...puppy school that is!  Madison and Morgan start their second puppy class on Monday at Petsmart.  We are looking forward to some improvements on last week's lessons and mastering this week's lesson.
Last week focused on sitting and getting the pups to pay attention.  No easy task since that was the first time the little monsters had been out in public.  They were like kids in a candy store...or puppies in a pet market.  Every corner held a new smell to sniff, new toy to grab, or new dog to try and meet.
 I've been working on sitting with hand commands, and they are both catching on...if they don't get distracted.  As our instructor said, they have the attention span of a gnat at this age, so anything and everything is a distraction.  It is a work in progress.
 "Good Boy!"
