Dog Training in Redhill - Mar 2011 - I've Signed Up For Another 6 Lessons

Penny does the dog training at our local vets. This was the last of 4 dog socialization sessions so I took my little Sony along with us.

As part of the course we were required to either wear or bring along strange items that would be unfamiliar to our puppies to accustom them to strange and unusual things they might see when they are out and about. I smiled, and the wife wore one of her most garish coats but others decided they could do better than that so one family brought along their Halloween gear. We then had to lead our dogs through this obstacle course without them being side-tracked by all the excitement.

Button did reasonably well until he came to that sheepdog toy in the picture at which point he grabbed it by the scruff of the neck and shook it. Halloween left him cold though I'm amazed he ignored that chap's feet.
