Week 2 -- Challenge

This weeks challenge turned out to be a fun one. Mom had been trying to figure out our challenge for the week; she wanted to take us out and about for the training. But she was thinking that since we are so comfortable being out in the public, she thought this might be cheating. So she keep thinking: Where can we go that is different? In the public area? and many other questions.

Saturday morning, Dad was telling mom that he needed to go to the store to get some fertilizer for the lawn and see if there was something that would help our yellow pee spots. Mom was just reading the newspaper looking for things going on in St. George and came across the H.A.R.T. Homeless Animal Rescue Team of Utah event at the The Backyard Gardens and Gifts. Our challenge just landed in her lap.

We all where headed to the nursery for our training challenge of the week. Little did Dad know that he was part of our challenge (woof woof with tails a wagging and mom snickering :) ). Our
challenge went like this, Dad was going to be our handler we had to listen to him while visiting the nursery with distractions of meeting other dogs and people.

Here are some pictures to tell the story:

Here we are just getting to the nursery with Dad in control.

Me, Tytus, thinking boy that wasn't so hard mom. Thank you for the fun challenge.


  1. Woohoo! Great challenge getting Dad to attempt to control you two :)
