Henri is a graduate! Last Tuesday night Henri graduated from puppy training class at PetSmart. I had decided to take him there since he was having none of the home training. It wasn’t until after the first class that I realized I had forgotten a lot of the tricks I had to use on Gracie. But it was okay, he made new friends and learned to play with other dogs. Money well spent!
I don’t want to say he graduated at the top of his class… but, when it came to the contests/games he did pretty darn well! First he won fastest sitter, I have to say he was pretty darn fast! Then they played longest stay. He came in second for that, but I’m proud of him because it was a really really long stay, I was ready to quit before him! One little dog, Lulu, tried to distract him but I yelled at her and said, BACK OFF LULU! Yes, I yelled at a dog, I’m not proud, don’t judge me 😦
Then we played push ups, which we had not learned to do before but Henri came in second with 8 push ups in 30 seconds to the winners 10 push ups. A couple of his push ups didn’t count, according to the instructor, because on a few of them he didn’t go all the way down. I want a recount! After that we played musical dogs, like musical chairs only when the music stopped the dogs had to sit. Seeing as we were the fastest sitter in the west I knew we had this in the bag! Sure enough, we were the last dog standing eerrr sitting.
It was a lot of fun though and I might take the intermediate class, but I’ll sign Gracie up for that.
Here are some pictures of the graduation and Henri with his awards!
