So, this morning was our first Family Dog 2 class-
Chan got a little "herdy" during playtime before class,
but immediately recalled out of play group,
so interrupting him wasn't a problem.
Despite being a total flake about heeling all week,
he practiced heeling with minimal distractions.
He spent most of his time focused on me,
and it was fairly easy to regain his attention
if it wandered.
I could drop the leash for most exercises.
The only bad part of the night occurred when a thirteen month old golden decided to resource guard one of the other people that was not his owner and flattened a five month old golden puppy during free play. He was quickly grabbed and corrected.
I'm going to have to watch the older golden and encourage Chan to be gentle with the baby.
It'll be interesting to see how the instructor handles play after this incident.
