Well Midnight’s gone to two puppy training classes so far. She’s having a ball at the classes.
She’s not so hot on the car ride there, but once we get out of the car she starts pulling on her leash to get into the Petsmart to see her friends. She always barks at the entrance to say hello to any dogs that might be near the checkout. I call Petsmart her doggy Wonderland.
Being her adopted mummy I think she’s kind of cute, smart and adorable … but judging from pretty much everyone she meets response she must be a cute puppy. Everyone seems to love her. Whether we’re walking on the street or walking around in Petsmart people always come up to pet our little furball. She’s very enthusiastic and gets right into greeting people and their dogs if they happen to have one with them.
The training classes are ok. I’ve done a lot of reading and have been working on training her at home using many of the techniques that they are teaching in Petsmart so I don’t feel like I’m gaining all that much by going through the classes. However, as a way to socialize Midnight to other people, other animals and in particular other dogs I think it’s great.
It’s also nice to talk to other puppy owners to learn of their experiences.
One lady has a yellow Lab puppy that’s about two weeks younger than Midnight. Molly is her name. She’s just a little smaller than Midnight but I’m certain she’s got about ten pounds on our pup. Midnight is of course still sick – more on that in another post.
By the time we get home on Friday evenings we have a very tired puppy on our hands and she goes right to sleep … and that’s nice.
