Is My Dog Smarter than Me?

Ok dog people, at the risk of stating the obvious, I think that McKell is really quite intelligent.  Not only does she always remember to check under Jeanette’s desk to see if there are any cookies (there was one once, about 4 weeks ago), but her love of food led to some really fast training yesterday.

We took McKell to Step1 and 2 class at yourcourteouscanine at Abby’s Dog Depot in Westport, Ma for her first training class.  In an hour she mastered sit, lie down, stay and up – the puppy pushup.  We went through a lot of string cheese, but it is amazing how far you can get in an hour with a food motivated dog!

The rest of this week we will be practicing our sit stays and down stays.
