@MrsPanda99:  Rock on lady!  I actually thought of you and your puppy this weekend, the 99 Boys were playing with the pitbulls next door and I was just so impressed at how very groovy my boys can be.

@MrsPanda99:  So exciting! How  old is your pup? My puppy is now 6 months old and he graduated obedience school about 1.5 months ago! It really is so useful! However, he is starting to go through those puppy ‘teenage years’ I have heard so much about : good luck with your classes!

@MrsPanda99:  That’s awesome! I’ve done a couple of rounds of puppy school and it was always a learning process for my dogs AND for me, which is great. You can work on stuff together.

@MrsPanda99:  I totally felt the same way about dog training classes, “this is more about training ME!”

Yay!  We took our guy to training classes when he was around that age.  He was like a different dog when he was finished, I was so proud of him.  He was probably the 2nd worse dog in the class even at the end, but I’m still proud of how far he came.  It so helpful to train around other dogs too, gets them used to distractions.  We’ve still got his graduation certificate on our fridge 🙂

@MrsPanda99:  Wort is a very discriminating little animal, and it takes a long time for him to get over his natural cautiousness and actually play with a dog that isn’t Brock or Simba….so right now, we settle for him playing with them through the fence, or he’ll kind of chase after the big boys and play along that way, but he’s just not ready to be part of a physical thing with them…which is fine.

Brock is a bruiser and Simba is no slouch…so they’re pretty rough and tumble with the pitts next door, but its all in good fun and we’re always watching in case things get a little loud…which they haven’t….

@MrsPanda99:  I’m so glad you think it’s going to help! Would you mind telling me what kind of class you found? And were they OK with him being a bit aggressive, even for a little while? My JRT can be a jerk if anyone dares snark at her, so the only class we were able to take her to was a “chill out” class that was full of other highly reactive dogs, which did nothing but stress her out the whole time.
