Well, Maddie's first training class was last night. She did really well. There's only one other dog in our class, so that should be nice. Since the class is actually done in Petsmart, there's lots of distractions with other dogs coming and going—which is good. The best way to train an animal is in a place where they can be easily distracted. It makes for a little more work, but they're more likely to behave that way in everyday life—since they're used to the distractions. Oh yeah, and how come dogs are always on their best behavior when you're trying to show off their bad behavior to another person?
