You just described Peggy in last week's class. So! Embarrassing! And she fell to pieces at the groomer's, too.It's definitely worth it to find a trainer that you and Willow connect with, if you can!
I am lucky I guess, most of the trainers and assistants at my training club are in love with Raffi. Maybe in comparison to many of the crazy doodles they see? Unfortunately today he did not live up to his star student status- he was barking and pulling at most of the other dogs today. So embarrassing! I'm pretty sure that he is off-kilter because my other dog is currently in heat. He's too young (6 months tomorrow) to be very interested but he has been super whiny, plus I have not been allowing them to play outside together.
Luckily, our trainer and groomer both definitely have a soft spot for her. It helps me to see her through their forgiving eyes.
