Eeek!! Talk about confusion....
No one was on time + three new student and their dogs = COMPLETE chaos!! and I say I like trial by fire. ha!!
There are two rat terriers (2 yo and 5 mo), both were able to pay attention and wanted to work. Hooray. One I would like to steal for an agility dog/freestyle dog. Very cool, able learner. Two beagles that are way overstimulated!! and not very food motivated due to being over stimulated. If they weren't already getting the porky-beagle look I would think they were another breed!! Just kidding.
Class was okay. We reviewed "watch me" and "sit," introduced "down," and talked about why massage was good for your dog. Did a wee bit of LLW (Loose Leash Walking). Considering the three new students arrived at different times and only one knew what a clicker is, it wasn't TOO terrible.
And hey, at least I am not teaching six weeks of privates again. This session should be extremely interesting/entertaining/and frustrating. Yeah! I'll take it.
