I sort of took today off to catch up on things I have put aside during harvest - One being take Mr. B for a trip to town - needed to pick up some Purina for him and a Papa Johns for us . But before - we stopped at Rural King - It's a big store and he needed to walk around , He did pretty good - He sure does draw a crowd -
Wanting to know all about him - people say you just never see any Dobermans any more and so on and son on . There was a gal with a outstanding - Beautiful Aussie Pup ! What a looker ! Mr. B had his eyes on her but for the most part did OK and the lady did a great job of handling her .
Then to Pet Valu - As we walked in , I seen a couple with there fingers threw a cage , petting a kitty - I did NOT see they had a dog with them but you know who sure did ! He swung around a hundred miles a hour and sounded like a man eating beast ! I got him straightened out and got his mind of the other dog , I have never seen a couple of people + there dog exit a store that quick ! I did not even have time to tell them that Mr. B is OK and we were sorry - they were out of Dodge . We did apologize to the manager .
Now the worse part ! I had to hear how I needed to work with him more and how embarrassing that was
I agree with the embarrassing part , I have gave lots of people hell over the same thing - but the shoe was on the other foot today ( mine )
Mr. B has always had this problem with other dogs - I have taken him to group training , worked and worked with him , yet I have missed something in his training ! I have no idea what to do with him and breaking of his actions around other dogs - I thought I had fixed it for the most part ,I want to take him to OB classes soon - yet I have to fix this before we go . I don't know - I may take to the lady teaching the rally course first and see what she says , maybe it would help to be around others dogs more offend .
I will say and I'm not making up excuses for him - but he is lost with Ali girl here and me being busy in the fields have not helped matters any . He has changed .
Well if any of you have a idea for us - fire away , I think we both got grounded this afternoon by the Mrs.
Have a great Sunday
