I took the Bug to class today. I introduced him to the table and tunnel before anyone arrived. Bug is a cautious dog but willing to take some chances, and I suspect as he trusts me more he will become more confident.
There were only three students in the Canine Good Citizen Class today so Katrin asked me to bring Bug in and we practiced walking through a crowd, sits and stays. At first he didn't want to take any treats - he was way too high. As he calmed down he gobbled them right up. Katrin gave us a piece of string cheese and Bug thought that was FABULOUS. Yay, a dog of my own who can eat string cheese! Very exciting to me. Poor Ike has huge difficulties eating cheese (no clue why - something to do with the consistency).
I was really happy with what a quick learner Honor is. I am looking forward to working with him. He is such a happy dog.
