Madison's new intermediate training class went semi well last night. Maddie is very dog shy and I had the trainer evaluate her prior to signing up. I figured she would hide under the chair all night, but to my surprise she made friends with a very sweet beagle puppy. (kinda helped that the mom had treats). She surprised me by going trying to entice two other dogs into play mode, but when they responded, she hid behind me. If they are really calm she gets a little braver. There's hope yet!
