in case you were wondering, in a pinch, primal sticks jerky works pretty well as a high-value dog treat. we gave them a try tonight in manners class, and maia thought they were pretty exciting. yay!
manners classes are going pretty well, i guess. she is good at some things, not at others, and i imagine that’s to be expected. the funny thing is that sometimes she’s bad at things i think she “already knows,” and she’s good at something i didn’t expect. she always keeps us on our toes. i need to do a better job of practicing in the time between classes, too. my husband is better about it than i am. i only seem to remember to practice when it’s around a mealtime. i’m being a slacker. oh well, i have four more weeks to improve!
