Tanner's greeting

Join me on my journey as I grow to become part of my pack/family. We'll have a lot of fun along the way! Hopefully, I can make you laugh.

Training Changes

I think I mentioned in previous posts that Mommy has decided to change up some of my training.  She has decided that I am having trouble focusing on her.  And that is what she wants to fix.

Mommy did what she always does, she bought a book.  It is called Control Unleashed, by Leslie McDevitt.  Mommy is working on teaching me how to relax.  Personally, I think I am pretty good at it.


But Mommy says not so much during training sessions.

Here is a video of one of our recent sessions:

I think I did pretty well.  This is just a small part of the session.  When I start to “spin” Mommy goes and sits down.  It is my job to go to her when I calm down and want to play again.  Sometimes she has a make a loud noise to get me to stop spinning, but other times I do it on my own.  I really like to play with Mommy.

I’ll be posting more about my training sessions this week and as time goes on.  Mommy and I are learning a lot.

Puppy Kisses,



  1. Tanner, I think both you and mommy did an awesome job!!

  2. Tanner, you're looking good!! Mom says she needs to send me to visit your family for a few weeks. Apparently you have better manners than me!

  4. Looking good there, Tanner! The spinning thing looks so silly :)

  5. Wow, I spin like that too. Mom just kind of looks at me sideways wondering what I am doing. It's so much fun. You're looking good there Tanner!

  6. Hey Tanner,

    Yep, you look pretty relaxed to me, but what do I know!

    My Mum reads those kind of books too, she could just ask me to do whatever it is she wants, she just forgets to say please - Tee Hee :)

    Hope you're having fun,

    Your pal Snoopy :)
