First Day of OB class I had so much FUN!

This is me and my Human sis Allie, her and mom tooks turns with me at my OB class. Mom did the first 30 minutes and Allie the last 30 minutes. Of course I listened to them both and I breezed right threw that class.

I was so excited I was the only dog drooling all over the mat. I drool and basically have all kinds of bubbles come out of my mouth. See my tongue hanging out? It was so hot for a winters day and plus the trainer said someone turned up the heat to 90 degrees! I think it was that little Jack Russle Terrier ..hehehe just kidding! He was such a friendily guy and wanted to jump all over me but I just kinda stayed my distance, if ya know what I mean!

See that cute pug? He was struting his stuff man I tell you! Of course he is the trainers prize winning dog. Hey...even I would sit if I saw the trainer lady coming my way. My trainer lady is in the picture in the white t-shirt. I liked her!

I am such a good listener and stayed! Come on give me something hardier! Mom said that I would probably have it easy in this class because I am already so smart and know a lot of the stuff but she said we have to work our way up to agility classes.
I know what you all are talking about now when you say those beginners, they were all over the place and acting all crazy but not me. Even the lady outside with a male golden who was waiting for her daughter said she doesn't like newbies...only because her dog was very nervous around other doggies. She said he was a rescued dog that guarded chicken coops..awww how sad..but I was so happy because she seemed to love him and had him since he was 1 and now is 2.
The trainer was big into giving treats as rewards but mommy was worried because I have no interest in treats when I am so excited but the trainer lady said that she could praise me, which she does anyways.
Let me tell you friends when we got home I woofed down that chicken meat treats she had made for me as soon as I got in the door. But of course...yeah... I had to share with Baylee since mom said it was only fair. Geez.....I did all the hard work for 1 hour while Baylee sit on her butt and was being lazy at home with dad. Some dogs have it easy. Hehe for now cuz I heard mom tell sista Allie that Baylee is going to start OB traing after I get this 7 weeks done.....heheheheee!

Okay, I got to go to my favorite place in the whole world, Petsmart and got to do some shopping.... I picked a few treats out!
Come on take the picture already and let me start sniffing the stuff! See all those pretty little things behind me?
All yeah if you all wondering what the black harness thigy is, well mommy makes me wear the stupid, not stylish thing when I ride in the Jeep to keep me safely in my seat belt so she says.
It is not like I am a wild dog or anything and won't even stick my head out the window like most dogs do! You know those windows go up and down out of know where like there is some magic button mommy has to control them and I am not having any part of that either. Do you stick your head out the window?
Maybe mommy will post more she tells me she has been very busy and well it has been storming here like crazy. So crazy the wind blew her patio table over and threw it up to the fence and glass shattered everywhere. Boy that was a mess and she wouldn't let us dogs go outside until she got it all cleaned up. So unfair, wouldn't you say? Hugs & Licks Sami

Oh Sami, glad to hear that you had a great time during your 1st OB class. I'm sure you were the best newcomer there becoz you've already learned a few commands before the others. You will do very well I know, Sami. The important thing that you've gotta learn before the rest is (which my mommy did not teach me when I was young. Her mistake!) is "watch me" command. This will keep you focused on your handler's eyes. Most trainers will teach this command to their new students even my mommy teaches the new students this command 1st before anything else. But anyway, keep up the god work girl!

Love licks,
