Obedience Class - Week Five

Hi everyone. It's me, Mitch!

Yesterday was my obedience class!

 It was week #5, which means that next week is graduation!   Mom says that we've been doing "okay" and that means that we need a whole lot more practice!

This picture is me focused on mom (and my yummy treats) and I'm following her wherever I have to, to get rewarded. 
Can you see that my leash is dragging?  I'm the only one in the ring so there's hardly any other distraction. hehehe

 One of our requirements for graduations in learning a new trick - one that we've never done before.  I'm practicing it at school today.  Can you guess what it is?
How about now?

I'm working very hard mom!  I want you and the trainer to be so proud of me!

So until next time................

Yer friend,

Hi Mitch,

Hi Mitch!! You're doing brilliantly - we guess your trick might be rolling over??! We're no good at that hard as we try - our human said we're Special Needs ;-) Good luck at your graduation, Dex & Lou x

It looks like you are very dedicated to your treat ummm I mean tricks Mitch :) :) I hope you have a big graduation party planned.

Dexter said...

That is not an easy trick, but always a crowd pleaser. I, too, am most attentive.... AT SCHOOL. Hehehe.

That trick is HARD but I'm sure you'll master it within seconds. Way to go, Mitch!!!

We are sooo proud of you Mitch! We are not so hot on obedience - well we blame our genes.

I'm sure your mom is proud. But thanks for reminding me I need to figure out what to do about the doggy class gift card I have. After tonight, I'll have all summer to focus on the fur-girls!
