We adopted Daisy through San Antonio Pets Alive when they were hosted by Petsmart. A couple of times a month they set up shop in the aisles of Petsmart to find new homes for dogs and cats that have been saved from certain death at kill-shelters.
In exchange for adopting a dog or cat at one of these events, Petsmart gives you a coupon book worth over $200.00 in savings on supplies and food at Petsmart. Included was a $20.00 coupon for their 6 week Training Course.
Since adopting Daisy, she has only been about ninety percent accident free, and we've discovered she has a shoe fetish. A training course? Let's try it, we thought. What could it hurt?
Daisy attended lesson one a couple of days ago. They presented us with a free bag of training treats and a clicker. We learned about using a clicker to reinforce good behavior.
Daisy seemed to understand the general concepts. Now we have to keep practicing and reinforce what we learned in the class at home. Apparently consistency is the trick to training. We even left the class with homework for Daisy to work on until our next training class.
Will this help us over-come her shoe fetish?
We'll have to wait and see!
Wish us luck!
