    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!

    Thats great! I'm glad she's getting comfortable :)

    I have a really timid dog, more so with people than dogs (she loves other dogs) but when she gets into our training club she's like a whole new dog. Going up to people and soliciting attention (sooo not like her) It's great when they really enjoy the place you train
