Yesterday, I started telling you about the SANE seminar that Mommy took me to this past weekend. SANE is all about Solutions for Extreme Dog Behaviors. And Mommy says my “fooling around” gets pretty extreme.
This is what I can do with a leash if I am allowed.
You can imagine what I would do to Mommy’s hand.
But, please notice, I am a happy boy while I am doing it. I just don’t know how to cope. I don’t want to hurt Mommy. I just don’t know what else to do. I have probably been asked to do something I don’t understand, or I have just had too much training time. Mommy now knows I need to take a break.
Kathy told us that some doggies get like this when they are scared or confused. There are 4 ways a doggie can act and mine is one of them. But most people don’t think I am scared or confused. They think I am just playing and it is cute.
Mommy says it’s not so cute and she wants to help me get through these times better.
One of the things we learned about was “Balance”. This is a photo of Kathy trying to help me have more balance. I now walk with a different leash. But I’ll tell you about that later this week.
