Well, Rex isn't going to win any prizes unless it's for "most stubborn". Urgh! They weren't horrible tonight, but I hear people talking about Stella. Saying things like "well, he must work with her every night" and "he works with her 3 times the amount of time I do". In other words, as Kevin predicted (hate it when he's right), she is the rock star of the class. And, my dog is the clown. Case in point - we were going to practice heel with a loose leash and not holding onto to the leash or the dog - as soon as it is time to start walking, MY DOG falls over on his belly and everyone has to walk around us. SERIOUSLY? And at least twice during a "stay" practice, when he had gotten up numerous times, when I put him back in stay position, he pressed himself up against the wall like some abuse victim. I have never even raised my hand to this dog! But that may change! ha! Really?
We have two weeks to go and I am pretty certain that Rex is going back through for a second round. I am in the middle of parent conferences right now and couldn't help but wonder tonight if I had a parent conference with the trainer on Rex, what would she say? "Ma'am, it may be time to think about repeating obedience..."
