Posted on

As promised, here is the 5 month old Isaiah “chair picture!”   Hard to believe how fast this boy is growing!

He’s doing well with his training too!  I have him in a group class so he can learn while being around other dogs in a class situation. Even us trainers like to have our dogs experience what we recommend for our own students and clients! 🙂  When training puppies, you want them to have good experiences in as many different places, around as many different dogs and people as possible.  It’s all a vital part of socializing them.  Just because they’re good with the dogs at your house or around your friends or families dogs, does not translate to them doing well with other dogs that they might meet out in public.  They need to practice meeting new dogs on a regular basis in lots of various places.  It’s more about the act of meeting the new dogs (and people) than it is the actual dogs (or people) themselves.

Isaiah is currently in an Intermediate level group class and doing great!  Plus, I just started him in a dance class (yes, I said dance class….) yesterday!  Can’t wait to see how THAT goes!  ha ha!   We’re doing it for fun and for the simple experience of it all.  Even dogs like to have fun and dance sometimes!

If you’ve ever taken a dance class with your dog, leave me a comment about your experience!  I’d love to hear all about it!

I told ya…. you never know what these boys will do next! 🙂

About D. Smith

First, I'm a follower of the Lord Jesus Christ. Grew up in the faith, but didn't truly recognize the treasure that He is until later in life. Also, I'm happily married with four children, six dogs, and one cat. Why, yes.. I did say six dogs. I know that blows many people's minds. Let me blow it a little more by letting you in on the fact that four of the six are Great Danes! Yes, I did say Great Danes. Yes, they are big, and yes they do live in the house, and yes they can eat a lot :) And most of all.... yes we are a little nutty, but we wouldn't have it any other way! Great Danes are AWESOME! The other two dogs are an Australian Shepherd and a Border Collie mix - just in case you were wondering.... :) Now that I know what it really means to follow Him who first loved me, I cherish and rejoice in who He is. I long to show others this truth so that they may also come to full understanding of what His love really means for their life. In addition to being a Christ follower, I'm also a dog trainer. Dogs just have a way of getting right up close to your heart and sharing your life in ways that not all people can. Perhaps God created dogs to show us humans how to love unconditionally in addition to being our helpers. I decided last year to go back to school in order to get my Christian counseling degree. Later, once I've graduated, I also plan to use my skill as a dog trainer to help people train their own Service Dogs for issues such as mental illness, autism, pain related illnesses, and other similar issues, along with offering counseling services for them as well. I am looking forward to seeing how the Lord will move in my life from this point forward! With God, all things are possible!
