Penny is a 1.5 year-old Pit mix, and her owners have done a wonderful job with her so far. She already knows Sit and Down pretty well, so we just taught Penny the hand signals for them. We also taught her how to Leave It, which will help when she counter surfs (her biggest vice).
A new session of Puppy K started last night! Visit our Facebook page for pics and video.
Rica is a 4 year old mix (Manchester Terrier?) rescued from the streets of Puerto Rico. She is a sweet little dog that is just beginning to come out of her shell. She does have a problem with hand shyness, though, and that was an issue tonight as we tried to teach her to sit. But we persevered and by the end of the night she was sitting very well.
