School for Dogs?

Yep! You heard me right! Humphrey Bogart and Tommy Lee just had their second Doggie Lesson. It’s not puppy kindergarten at PetSmart, it’s one on one puppy school. We have a dog trainer, who’s been training dogs for 35 years who comes over once a week for between an hour and an hour and a half and teaches us to work with the dogs. They are doing great! What good little guys! They are so smart! Anyway, we’ve been learning Sit, Stay, Down (lay-down) and Heel….and today we added Check and Come.

You can completely see the different personalities between the two when they are working. Amazing how quickly they can pick this stuff up!

We worked them in the front yard tonight which was nice, kids running around, riding their bikes by, cars and another lady walking her dogs, she’s got two Miniature Pinchers and a Greyhound. They both seemed to handle it pretty good all things considered. In a couple weeks we’ll be taking them to the park…so they’ll have more distractions.

Right now, they are sound asleep laying next to me. That ½ hour to 45 minutes wears them right out! Very sweet!


  1. Aww how cute! I want a doggie. But I can’t have one til I get there.
