    DefaultShadow's going to Puppy Kindergarten

    I finally made the leap.
    Shadow is going to Puppy Kindergarten starting Aug. 5.
    I chatted with the trainer on the phone yesterday. He doesn't allow "unsupervised" puppy play.
    The interesting part will be that the class is going to be in French....*wimper* but my husband and kids will be there so my hubby can translate for me. (I live in Quebec, mainly French-speaking province and I'm an English only speaker )
    I'll update on this after the first lesson.
    Sincerely, <br />FlyingKitty aka Shadow&#039;s mom<br /><br /><br /><br /><br />

    Good luck! I have a random question...do you use both French and English commands with Shadow?

    One of my dogwalking clients (now moved away) was a border collie that learned french obedience commands.. Ici! Couchez! sound so much better than "COME!" "DOWN!"


    Have fun at Puppy-K!

    Actually I only use English with Shadow because I don't know enough French to give the commands in French. I have what a lot of Canadians have (what I call cereal box French. Both languages are on all packaging in Canada...so many can "read" simple French from packages like...cereal )
    However for "practical" French I have very little. I guess I'll be learning some in Puppy K.
    My husband however speaks both languages. I think he uses a little French with Shadow.
