Chip and Ginger- training day

Yesterday Chip and Ginger had their first training with Scott VanDenHaute, owner and trainer extarordinaire of VersatileK9,  Northeast Ohio's best training and behaviorist program for canines.  He is affiliated with Cesar Milan, which is a bonus!!!

Mr. Scott (that is what MOM says we have to call him) was great- he certainly had Mom's number and started off training her!!!!  :)  The three of us worked on us going to a "Place" when the doorbell rings and Mom goes to answer it.  it wasn't too hard, but STAYING was, especially for Ginger!!!!  We worked our tails off for an hour and then Mr. Scott had to leave.  He will be emailing homework to Mom and we see him again in two weeks. 

Today the Mom Monster had us doing "Place" for 87 thousand million hours!!!!  She took all of our favorite pillows and blankies and made us "Place" on each one, and then "Stay".  We only got treats if we did it completely right.  That is so unfair!!!!  Chip got more treats than Ginger!!!!  Mom even used the couch as a place for us!!!!

We heard the MM (Mom Monster) telling Dad that she plans on working us to death after Rush Limbaugh is over at 3, and then again when she gets home from her prayer shawl group tonight!

Hi Guys, I know this is a really very much hard one to learn... butt! It is super good for when Mean bad people come to your house. You will be back away and safe and sound. Keep on with the practice... the treats will be flowing like water over the falls, in No Time.

Sounds like someone is going to be very "training" busy!

Mom does train us separately since Ginger has a real hard time at STAY>. But, she does better after Mom puts Chip through his paces. Now, if they would listen to COME!
