How is Casper's class going?

I've been meaning to ask you, but my toddler has had pneumonia, and I haven't been getting a whole lot of extra "me" (AKA: Computer) time.

Quick, lets get the treats out of the bag before Mom sees!

Thanks everyone, Lucas (toddler) is doing better. He still has a cough, but the fever has passed, and the laboring to breath is gone.

Lynn, that is really scarry, I bet you and Casper were both really on edge after that. I would definitely talk to the trainer, hopefully he will have a good solution.
They really need either 2 classes, or to have the animals separated (big/little).

Princess is doing much better in the car, we have figured out to take her for a walk first, and to make sure she's in her bag. We've tried the plastic crate since then, and she still slobbers everywhere. If she's out of the bag, she slobbers everywhere. So we have learned, we don't go anywhere without her bag.

She started conformation classes, and the trainer (also our new vet) told us that she didn't really need the basic puppy obedience class, because she's almost potty trained, and I have her doing some of the basic commands already.
We've been to two of the conformation classes, and the first one was hard.. it was really a battle of wills. I won, but the little turkey wouldn't even look at me for the rest of the night. She got in bed with me, and then went to lay with hubby instead. lol

The second class went really good.. she's doing pretty good on her lead and she stacks ok.

My teenager did last week's class with her, and I saw the first part when I dropped him off, and caught the tail end of it. I think he may be our handler.. he just doesn't know it yet

I'll try and catch the chat, but it probably wont be until Monday... our weekends are crazy, as all 5 kids play drive Mommy nuts.

Quick, lets get the treats out of the bag before Mom sees!

I am so gald Lucas is better. You probably need a rest now, yourself.

It is funny you said Princess was upset with you after class, because I was going to ask the trainer of our class if they do that. Last class Casper did well, but when we got him home he was a monster. I could not get him to calm down.

I think I can handle Casper during class better than my husband, he is all force and I give a little when I can and try to make him happy he is being good, does not always work.

My favorite new command is sit - stay, I love it! I really didn't think he would be able to do it,
but he can.

anyway, hope all the kids stay well, have a good weekend.

post puptum depression....

Hi All, so i got home last night with this precious little guy--- and all I could think of is "what did I do?" Jasper doesn't know what to make of Cash and he has been giving me very human looks like "what have you done to me."
when the puppy tries to innitiate play Jas runs (my poor little boy)

On the good side he seems to be paper trained already. And he is very sweet. so different from Jas when he was a puppy. much more needy and demanding
jas was always independent.

But I had this moment last night-- Jas was in bed with us (to make him feel special) lying next to my pillow- and Cash was in his crate inches from my head-- and I looked at my husband and said "what is going on here?" don't I have allergies- when did we become dog people.

But this morning things are a better-- Puppy is taking a nap and Jas is on his favorite chair basking in the sun and barking at leaves that blow by- and I have been able to get a bit of work done.

So hopefully they will begin to be best pals-- I have two weeks to make it work in which time the breeder will take him back. I am hoping it all works out

Jodi, hope lucas is feeling even better.

Lynn, you should definetly talk with the teacher about the Big dog. it must wreck it for everyone in the class.

Just curious--- any of you with Black and White puppies think they look like a skunk? Cash's legs are so short and he just kind of waddles. But then when he runs he hops like a bunny. Jasper never really had the Hav run. I just hope they start to have fun I love my Jas so much - I want him to be happy

thanks for listening

Missy




Missy, Jasper & Cash

Congrats on your new baby. I'm sure Jasper will learn to love Cash in no time. Have fun with your babies. I'm jeolous. Might be a year before I get another.

Lynn,
Definetly mention something to the trainer! It could prevent something in the future. The inexperienced handler might not just realize what a risk she puts others and her own dog at when the dog gets lose.

A lot of what training is about, is making people more aware of their dog!

Hi, Missy
I felt the same way. On the ride home from picking up Shelby, I wanted to turn around and bring her back. Two dogd?! But they are doing just great and make me laugh all the time, so it is worth it all. I am sur that Jas and Cash will be friends real soon and you will have just as much fun.

It will be fun to see who tries to be alpha and who gets jealous, and who initiates play first. Just give them space to learn - tey will figure it all out.

Good luck to you all
