    DefaultOur Training Sessions

    We just had a really fun training session. I try to always keep them short and fun (so they always leave wanting more), but I spent a little longer tonight just because Angus was so damned funny.

    He has this little thing he has started doing recently, when we first get started. He is SO wound up and ready to go that he spends the first minute or so frantically trying every trick he knows, back-to-back-to-back, in a desperate effort to get that first treat. If I tell him to back up, he stands. Then spins. Then waves bye-bye. Then rolls over. Then jumps up and down. You get the picture.

    Man, I wish upon a star that I could take treats into the ring. ;D

    Simon is more low-key, so where I spend a lot of the time trying to get Angus to calm down and focus, I spend an equal amount of time running back and forth and playing, trying to get Simon to get a little more excited about it. He likes it, but he does everything sooooo calmly. So different, those two.

    The end of our sessions are always the same. When I train them, one of them goes into the kitchen to wait (hopefully patiently) while the other works. Then we switch. Then at the end, the hounds are released into the living room together.

    Always, without fail, there is five minutes of growly-bitey-face. I don't know what the point is, but I imagine if they could talk it would go something like:

    "She thought I was smarter tonight!"

    "No she didn't! She likes me better! You're a pain in the ass!"

    "Then how come I always get to go first?"

    "So she can get it over with, you buttface!"

    "Bite me!"

    "OK!"


    Connie and "The Boys":
    Angus, Yellow Lab, CGC, RE, CD
    Simon, d.b.a. Flat Coated Retriever, CGC, RE, CD

    Gone ahead, but forever in my heart:
    Crash, Pit Bull x Rottweiler x Golden Retriever

    I can picture everything exactly as you described it, right down to to the bitey-face conversation! A fun session.
