We didn't need to have a foreign trainer work Monte at class. He proved to be quite the handful for Lisa this evening. He wasn't distracted by the other dogs, but was mesmerized by tennis balls. Surprising, since we never use them. He also struggled with LEAVE IT, usually one of his strengths. The Pupperoni overstimulated his olfactory senses that seemingly causes his brain to malfunction.
He seemed to be possessed by demons and we were fortunate to capture the picture to prove it.
Our evening walks have been taking a lot longer with the multitude of training opportunities. Rabbits, squirrels, birds, and cats are proving to be quite the challenge for Monte. Thankfully we have six more months to acclimate him to all the critters in the village.
