Now that I am feeling much better I can give the post on Luna's puppy class that she went to on Monday. I wasn't able to go. I woke up on Sunday morning with a slightly sore throat. With in a few hours I was having sever chills and heat flashes and so on. It was awful. It lasted till yesterday when I finally forced myself to go to the doctor. Found out a had a serious throat infection. So now I am on some meds that have helped a great deal. Anyway with me feeling that awful Doug took Luna to the class. The funny part was he got lost. And ended up coming home to agian look up the direction. He did get there. A 1/2 hour late. He said there is a good group of dogs there. About 8-9. Some small and some large. He is not great at identifying breeds yet but he is pretty sure one is a poodle and is positive one is a husky. Luna did good as far as he is concerned. She sniffed hands of people and also sniffed noses of some of the dogs. She tried to snap at some of the larger dogs so Doug gave a slight correction for that since there was no reason for the snap. He got asked to do no corrections. This trainer does not believe in corrections and is purely positive training. I might try to have a discussion with her on that because we do believe in both corrections and postive reinforcement. But since the class is only one hour a week we might just go with the flow. Her nerves did get to her on the way to class and she got sick in the back of the car. But she did not piddle at of during class. So that was great. We had been thinking she might. All in all it wasn't too bad from what Doug said. He is just not comfortable with the purely positive based type training. To him it makes no sense. He does not understand how someone could think ignoring a bad behaviour will make it go away. So I explained to him that many different trainers follow many different ways to train. He is used to me. That will match the training to the personality of the dogs. I am not a fan of food based training. Everyone knows this. BUT Luna is being trained with food rewards because this is her trigger. Figured it out in a month. Toys excite her but not like food does. Unlike Sheena who will ignore all food for a ball, Luna will ignore all toys for a treat. So we go with the flow. I explained to him that some people find something that works for them and sticks with it. She does clicker training and I am interested in seeing how Luna will respond to it. I have done it before but not with Luna. And I think she might respond well to it. Anyway that is the update.
