It's official...Satchel has graduated from puppy training class. He can sit, lie down, stay, come, "leave it," "look"...and some other things that I'm currently forgetting. :-) (He also will fetch and crawl on his belly like a ninja...but we didn't learn those in the class.) We're so proud!!
We didn't think to bring our own camera today, but our trainer took a "class photo" at the end of the class tonight. This is the closest she could get to all four puppies looking at the camera at the same time.
That's Simba on the left, then Satchel (I think he may have been yawning...his tongue isn't normally sticking out that far), Burton, and Sandy. I just realized that they all unintentionally lined up from tallest to shortest. :)
I'm glad we did the training class. It was good for me to learn how to train him for some of these basic commands, and it was great for him to be around these other sweet puppies. We're considering signing him up for this same trainer's intermediate level class that starts in two weeks. Both Simba and Burton are probably going to be in that class, which would be fun.
