Maddie's Great Day

Well Mr. Maddie has done fabulously! He made it through the night without a peep in his crate. He went right in layed down & slept all through the night. He spend the morning with me running errands & then he stayed home while I gave my riding lessons for 2 or 3 hours. He did great! No whining, no panicing; he was just fine! I know it's still early in the game though. We still need to see how he does when he starts feeling comfortable.
We also worked on his obedience today. He learned how to heel nicely at my left side & to sit & wait whenever I stop. He learned his sit (stay) as well. He's such a sensative guy & a bit lazy but he did great! He's had a long day & he's sound asleep next to Tanner & Ruger. He's made great friends. He's not much into playing with them as of yet but he likes to follow them around the yard & sun bathe. We'll see what tomorrow brings :o)

Ditto...I can't believe how she behaved. The good news is...that's not typical for her. She is stubborn, yes, but last night really felt like a different dog. I am looking forward to a very different lesson next week!! (she's been better today, btw, but of course- we don't have all those exciting distractions here!)
