mbc1963 Posted February 22, 2009 Report Share Posted February 22, 2009 Or any other class we take, for that matter. I've put Buddy through a load of classes: basic obedience, obedience II, a drop-in obedience class, and now a "real" agility class. My main goal is to get him around some other dogs and chaos to help socialize him. Thing is, he seems like he really couldn't care less about the classes. After a few rounds of "counterclockwise heel," he will just plod along after me with no spark. Even when I pull out the great treats, he seems to look at class behaviors as a chore. Up and down the ramp? Ho hum. Through the hoop? Yeah. Right. I already DID that. Big yawn. Certainly, he has none of the vim and vigor I see in agility videos, where the dogs look like they're LOVING what they're doing. I'll finish this class, because I think it is good for him to be around dogs like this. But, y'all trainers and agility folks, what do you think? Is there a point to taking a dog to classes for which he has no liking and no particular aptitude? Mary Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
