First Session Down

Well,, we made it through our first of four "Puppy Play n train" dates. WOW, is all I can say.

First picture 8 puppies in one room, off leash. (Scary picture isn't it?)

Then picture me huddling my puppy close to me (but not touching him) and spreading my arms around him to keep other puppies at a distance so he didn't get too overwhelmed! Talk about overwhelmed (and I mean ME).

I have to say it didn't go too bad all things considered, except for maybe when the 3rd off leash play time came and Buddy decided he would be the aggressor this time! He had more time outs than any of them!

And after scrounging all around for loose puppy treats,(too bad that  wasn't one of the things he was being trained for) he decides mine weren't good enough anymore, which meant he wasn't so enticed by them to do what he was supposed to do.

Next week we bring his blanket and favorite toy for training (can just picture him stealing all the other puppies favorite toys, oh my!)

Like having a 2 year old that you can crate, but never gets any older. Life with a dog. Good Luck. They're cute at least, right??
