As I said in the introduction, it has happened. We have gone to the dogs.
Liddy and I are attending obedience classes at http://www.everydoghas.com/, a training center in Fife, WA.
Tonight was the first night of 6 weekly sessions. I think this will be good for us (or me.) Cement the work we have been doing on our own, and fix some of our mistakes. A good time to start this as July 4th is just around the corner with all of the fireworks and such.
I will keep you posted as we progress.
