Team Training ~ Day 1


Today was a day I'm sure a lot of people, the kids in particular, have been looking forward to for a long time; their first step on their journey to find a new best friend (and perhaps even partner in crime).


As today was mostly introductions, the focus was to get to know each other and this years group of dogs. Also, they learned about what it takes to get a dog to work for you. Some of the activities included trying to get the dog they were working to wag it's tail, perform basic commands (much harder than expected) and watching a DVD on pack leader behavior.

An hour long outdoor demonstration allowed everyone the opportunity to see how dogs behave in a pack.

Over all it was an exciting day, but only the beginning. 

Thank you to Subway for providing today's delicious lunch.
