Hi friends! I had to write a blog to tell you all the most amazing news that I got on Sunday at dog training…I got my silver badge for behaviour!!!
I have been working for a very long time to get this and I have been tested to get different skills ticked off – Mrs Cotton told me that it’s just like the Maths Sheriff that lots of you are working hard on.
Sometimes I find it a little hard to get motivated as I would like to just relax and lay upside down but I have to go training and then when I am good at something, I’m so glad I did it! Have you every felt like that?
I have had to learn lots of different things like: sitting down and staying whilst Mrs Cotton walks away from me (this is tricky as I know she has the treats in her pocket too), getting into a lay down from a distance, walking around different objects when I’m told to, finding the scent cloth that smells of my owners and sitting in one place whilst Mrs Cotton goes off and strokes all the other dogs – this is the trickiest as not only do I get a bit jealous, I also worry she might give my treats away!!
I’m working on my gold badge next and I am hoping that my Golden Time Club will help me to get better at the different skills – they’re super tricky and I am a bit nervous about learning them! I better get started now, speak soon. Winston
