Dog obedience, January 2012
Rob and I took Doc and Tucker to Blue Jacket Park today to practice some obedience with Doc. I haven't been keeping up much on his training, but I'm making a renewed effort to do more with him this year. Doc's obedience is still looking good, though he's a lot slower in his old age. And poor Tucker, who has been practicing with me more on his obedience lately, really wanted to join in the fun too. I felt kind of bad watching this video because he was so eager to play along. But I like that Doc didn't even notice him and just kept up with his heeling. Doc has been getting a bit more reactive to strange dogs in his old age, so I was pleased that he didn't even blink when a couple of dogs were walking around the park perimeter while we were practicing. Good dogs.
