Luther Training and "stuff"

Tonight is week 3 of Luther's obedience class and he is doing VERY well with his training.


I took this picture this morning of him doing a down stay for Leonard at the truck stop.

NOTE: On a NOVICE dog I would never let him do a stay at this distance and duration in only 2 weeks of training BUT Luther has been practicing "down stay" for a while now. On any dog that has only been "in training" for two weeks, I would still be directly in front of them for a brief stay while they are learning the concept.

Yes, that is Leonard's rig in the background. He drives tandem 48' trailers back & forth on the NY Thruway and Mass Pike.

Now for the fun stuff! We bought chairs at BJ's and the local embroidery shop did a very nice job for us!Bonnie's chair came out great too!

Nice rig. Looks like training is going real well. Those chairs are awesome. You advertise when you are sitting in them, and the chairs do the work when you are gone.

Lucky Luther -- that you'll spend the time with him for training and practice.

The embroidered cardigan is very well done. I'd like a sew-on patch for my scent article bag -- with a Cardi (brindle probably) and the "new" kennel name.
