Well, Fin went to obedience last week but I haven't had any time to write about it! I thought socialisation with dogs that might actually complain if he hangs off their face would be good. The plan was to watch the 1st session but as they remembered me from Molly's early days they asked Fin and I to be the unknown person and dog the others have to meet as part of their KC Puppy Foundation. This was a success! As we were out in the hall we continued with the rest of the class. Fin was surprisingly brilliant! Although he didn't exactly walk to heel, he didn't wrench my arm out of its socket and was very controlled! His sit and flat were solid and his wait is really getting there. I expected him to completely lose his mind in a room full of strange dogs and people but he was fantastic!
Unfortunately work kept me from taking him this week, but we'll be back next week!
We were lucky enough to borrow someones field, complete with A frame and Dog walk for 20 minutes over the weekend, so Fin has experienced some equipment. Only on the lead but his response was definitely positive. His play biting of Molly and Me is diminishing but still needs constant corrections. All in all he has settled brilliantly and has the makings of a lovely little boy!
Molly got a quick go on the agility equipment too and did some lovely, smooth snakes and pull thrus, achieved with some excellent shoulder turning from me. Leah would've been proud!
