    DefaultI am so stupid

    I think I have been so caught up in trying to train Tal I forgot to just spend time playing with him. Today I took him to my school for about an hour. There is a very large fenced in area and I went there to do some training drills. I'm not sure what came over me but I just dedcided to let him play. So I threw and he fertched and brought it back. He seemed to want me to join in with his fun as much as he enjoyed fetching and all. And he ran and just had a ball! We even played keep away..lol.

    I think I got reminded today that it is not all about training and having a well behaved dog. Not trying to minimize that at all but I am gonna make more time to just play with him and be together and have fun.

    BTW..he is wore out too...lol

    We did and I didn't wanna leave. But at 5 months, I never let him go for more than an hour. I'm not sure who was having the better time!

    That is good thinking!!!! Kudos to you. Many people doesn't understand that part. A couple in my neighborhood biking with their 8 month old mix and have done so for at least a couple of months. I have tried to talk to the woman once, but she doesn't seem to understand... :-\ Well it's her choice, but I feel bad for the puppy.

    Biking with and 8 month old puppy!!?? That sounds like serious orthopedic problems just waiting to happen. I wish folks would think through things carefully..**sigh** Like you I really feel for the puppy because he is in for some serious health problems.

    I wouldn't say you were "stupid", but I am GLAD you "see the light"... life is too short to be all work, and no play......

    I agree, not stupid at all, you just had a light bulb moment:
    Playing with Tal is one of the best things about having him!
    but I don't think you should worry . . .
    I'm sure Tal will remind you when it's time to play!

    Not stupid in the least bit! It's a learning curve.
    Just observing them in their own natural behaviour, what they respond to naturally, what piques their interest, what might stress them, what their inate tendencies are teaches us more about them than anything.

    You have to know their own dogness for you to know how best to work with them.

    I often do that with Tuck. I forget that "training" doesn't have to happen 24/7.
    I feel if I let her "play" and be a "puppy" all our work is gone. IT"S NOT! I am so glad you've seen that in yourself, although i am sure you're harder on yourself than you think, and you took tal to play today.
    I bet he had a ton of fun and will be looking forward to more time with you! ;D when does your classes start??
