Eva's first day to school!

First days of school are usually quite scary for young pups, but as we already went last week, Eva was more at home and at ease. She made many new acquaintances today. Although she allowed others to sniff her, she would refuse to sniff at their butts (maybe she thinks they're too smelly!!).

We had an individual lesson with the instructor. It was a starter lesson, so we learned the basics - first getting Eva to look at us whenever we called her name (she doesn't do this sometimes), and also the basis of heel and keeping her close to us at all times.

Here are some pictures we took.

"Hey Big Guy, don't ya think you're a tad too big?"
~To all who don't already know who he is, this is River from the Amber-Mae the GR's blog.~

"Hullo...erm..excuse me...what is this? Can you give up already??? We all know I have no drive towards green oval-shaped balls!!!"

"I'm sorry...you're intruding in my private space!"

"Don't ya think you're a tad too close??? I know I'm pretty but.....!"

Eva is great with children. She just seems to know how to tune down and be calm and more sheltie-like.

"Oh...so...thirsty!!!!"

And oh..so...tired!!

Eva is SO beautiful! How much fun!!! We are SO excited to start school this friday!!!
Thanks for your comment about the barking!! I really appreciate it!
Ace is also great with kids!! It is so funny!! He probably thinks they are puppies too haha!
I hope Ace does well with the other dogs we will meet at puppy class! He loves dogs, but he gets SO excited that he barks himself hoarse!
I think he will outgrow it =)
Did you feel like the class taught you a lot? Is it worth it? How many classes are there in a session?
Take Care! =)

Hi Priscilla,

The lake is in Semenyih, right next to the country club. It's a bit far to go just for a swim... for therapy, I believe the best is a big wading pool. Hope this helps.

Licks, hero

That looks like a fun day at school! Mom wants me to ask where did you attend school, as she wanted to send me to school again...we've been MIA so long after her arm incident, she says it's time we go back to do some training too *grins*
