    Since the weather turned for the good we are out in the neighborhood. We walk and practice our skills. Lately we have been working on her attention skills. When ever we run into an other dog we pull over and I ask for he attention.

    So today we where arriving back home and a lady just happens to be right there. She sees use and says "have you taken classes?" So we started talking and I found out she and her dog where a set we pulled over for one day. Lol so long story short...

    I have her my number and we are hopefully going to get together with the pups! It is so nice to find someone who appreciates a half way trained dog. Lol

    it made me feel good because I get al lot of nasty looks and comments when i ignore people when actively engaging my dog. The fact that she saw the good in what i was doing made my day. lol

    That is awesome!

    I completely understand the looks and comments you get when you're working with your dog. I'm almost to the point of buying Thor an in training vest so people won't find it necessary to foist their dogs on us while we're trying to work in the park.

    So annoying right? It is totally obvious when someone is engaging their dog and working with them. Some curtesy would be nice. Lol

    I've had people stand their and talk to me while I'm in the middle of trying to work with Deja...and their dog is lunging on the leash...I've had to tell people pointedly "can you not see I'm busy with my dog right now?" :p it is funny because I'm not even in the middle of the park or sidewalk...I always make sure we are off to the side and out of the way. Lol

    Congratulations on finding someone who understands when you're working with your dog. I agree with everyone, very annoying when people just don't 'get it' that you're working with your dog and not their dog (who is usually lunging around) and stand there thinking it's all so 'cute'.

    On a positive note, it is grand when your dog ignores the other one and just works on regardless, good exercise in working with distractions. But I still prefer to be left alone!
