    Feisty Class ~ Week 1

    We started the Feisty Fido class last night; it was the orientation session - no dogs. We'll be bringing Jar for the next 6 weeks.

    The class consists of 4 dogs - there's us, a family with a couple of small kids who didn't specify what kind of dog they had, and a couple who are trying to blend their households, including a pitty mix and a wheaten terrier.

    My husband keeps doing the "wheaton" thing. . .I hope they don't end up next to us!

    We did observe a first class a couple of weeks ago, and it seems to be pretty standard stuff. All the dogs are behind barricades - they won't be able to actually see any of the other dogs - though she did say that by week 7, the barricades are down and the dogs are all milling around, totally not caring about the other dogs. We shall see.

    Basically, they talked about their "big three" - exercise, nutrition, and nothing is free.

    So far so good.

    She also talked about how dog/leash aggression is one of the most common problems the deal with.

    We had a good chuckle at the idea of "midnight walkers" - those of us who walk our dogs when there's little chance of meeting other dogs/people/any other triggers.

    Have I mentioned lately that I walk the Jar at 4:30 in the morning? Yup - nice and quiet then!

    From what I've seen (and heard) it all seems to be pretty standard counter-conditioning stuff - all the stuff I've been trying to do with the Jar, but it's really hard to do alone. It'll also be more structured than what I've been doing - I think, when I'm on my own, I want to do ALL OF THE STUFF, even though I know, in my head anyway, that I have to do it a step at a time.

    So anyway, for posterity, I'll try to do weekly updates as to what we're doing - maybe it'll be helpful to someone.

    I'm glad that they are structured that way. I know you were concerned that they may be a little 'out there' but this seems, as you say, standard stuff.

    Having that sort of structure makes it so much easier on the dogs and you as well. I'm really looking forward to updates. Detailed updates icon_lol.gif

    Structure works-trust me. We are still working on people. "We" don't seem to like them much. "We" don't like Mommy's new groove. Mommy could give a *. "We" will conform. icon_twisted.gif

    Then "We" will worry about other dogs icon_lol.gif icon_lol.gif icon_lol.gif

    I'm looking forward to your updates-Go Jar!!!!!
