Another Good Training Day
Bud has been acting out sometimes on our daily morning beach play and training times. Bud has barked twice now before we start walking. I take the ball and give it to him, then he runs down the stairs and when I get to the bottom of the stairs he barks loudly and demands that I play right then. Bud has more energy lately. When he barks so rudely I say one time, "Quiet." Then I sit down and say nothing and do nothing. I wait until he sits nicely before I play with him.....I can't stand rude dogs especially service dogs. This picture is of a good calm Bud getting one of his favorite treats, a little lick of almond butter from my finger.
