The Sunday Post and Stacking the Shelves–It’s Almost October! Edition

 

The Sunday Post is hosted by Kimba of The Caffeinated Book Reviewer.  This is a weekly meme where we can share news of the week and highlight new books received.

Here’s an update for the past two weeks.  First, I can’t believe it’s almost October.  I leave for OKC and the Grand National Morgan Horse Show in a little less than two weeks.  I am so looking forward to relaxing while watching the best Morgan horses in the country that are showcased in the competition.

I took the puppers to a private training lesson last week.  Bumble was pulling me during our walks, and totally ignoring me.  Rachel showed me some things to try with him, and I was AMAZED at how quickly and how well they worked.  He still needs a lot of work, but when I took them to the park for our walkie, they were both much improved.  I am so excited to work on some of his other trouble areas, especially how he reacts to other dogs.  He gets so nervous and thinks that he has to protect his little pack from danger, and I don’t like him to be so stressed out.  They go back for another lesson after OKC, but in the meantime, I will continue to work on improving his walking habits, and both of their listening skills.  When I ask them to come to me, I need them to pay attention to me!  Do any of you have problem areas with your dogs that you’d like to work on?
