Lazarus at ThunderPaws Canine Solutions
Lazarus and Moses have been going to training at Thunderpaws Canine Solutions. Lazie is learning new skills for his Therapy Dog training, and Moses is brushing up on some general training and obedience. Lazarus is attending a Canine Good Citizen class and is hoping to earn his certificate deeming him a "good citizen," although we already know what a good boy he is. He loves his class, and especially his teacher Hepzibah. He has reviewed sit, down, stay, stay while down, staying while standing, staying with distractions, loose leash walking, heeling, wait, park it and more! Kevin and I are VERY proud of him. He is also enjoying our walks even more now as I am bringing treats along to reward his good behavior.
We are still trying to find a treat that really interests Moses and gets his attention for training. Moses has perfected "settle" because he was heavily rewarded for it at his session last week. (It helped that he was "dog" tired from tons of play the night before).
This is a picture of Kevin and Laz in the "training room" at ThunderPaws.
