Dec 14, 2009 - First day at the clinic! Jan made sure that I started on a day when there were no children there! I had to learn to lay down quietly in the classrooms, and just meet the staff! if anyone wants to pet me, I have to sit nicely while they pet me. I did GREAT!

Third week - I was invited inside since I can walk nicely on a leash now - after a lot of practice walking next to a wall. Jan would put her foot out to block me if I pulled ahead. After a LOT of practice, I had it. She is the boss and I have to walk beside her! I actually like her being the boss - because she is really nice and I get lots of praise.

I was outside with the beginners - you have to learn to walk on a leash before they invite you inside the arena.
