Me, “Oh my goodness, what big EARS you have!”

Georgia, “The better to HEAR the can opener with!”

Seriously, she is too cute. How has the training been going? Does she still try to take the fingers along with the treat?

We won’t dicuss Ilka’s behavior in the obedience/rally ring last month. It was too humiliating (3 Exscusals, and 3 NQs out of 7 classes). Suffice to say, she needs ALOT more work before I enter her in a trial again.

Georgia is a lucky puppy to have gotten a good home.

Thanks Rosemary! Georgia is doing a lot better taking treats without biting off my fingers! Another trick I learned that seems to help is to keep the treat in my palm and she picks it up very gently. Ilka sounds like a handful! She is lucky to have a trainer that doesn’t give up on her. Dogs are way too cute to be mad at!
