Well with the big break from obedience training most of December & January, finally Sonny got to graduate from Beginners Obedience. Tomorrow will be Beau & Sonny's second training session as a team. Last Sunday was fun, having them on the double leash. Sonny did seem a little reluctant to perform, but Beau had not forgotten anything and was in there full of enthusiasm.
I've received mixed opinions from the many different trainers in our club. Some thing training both together is the way to go & heaps of fun. Others think I should just concentrate on Beau because he is so young & so full of enthusiasm.
I am just going to take it week by week. The bottom line is that I took the boys to obedience not because I could not train them on my own, but because it is such a great social outing. Sunday is now formall called Dogday in our household. It may be true that I might never do great things with either of them if I keep them together in training, but I would be sad now to exclude Sonny from the activities. You should see him... in fact you should see them both on a Sun... oop I mean Dogday morning. The go wild with excitement. I love that and I want them both to enjoy that.
