PostSubject: Did You Say "NO"   Thu 02 Jun 2011, 12:41 am

I have been trying to expose the dogs to every type of situation possible that I can for many weeks for the 12 steps for their Canine Good Neighbor/Citizen class. Yesterday my mom was working evenings and I asked her at noon on the phone if it would be alright to bring the dogs to the senior home where she works as Arriba has never been there at 7PM and she asks one of her supervisors who said it was fine. Mom calls me in the afternoon and tells me we are not welcome because another supervisor said no dogs are allowed unless they already have their CGC/CGN certificate "OR" if they are visiting a resident.

I had already spent time bathing and grooming them to go when mom called to cancel and I was pissed. It was like when you can't get a job because you have no experince and you can't get experience because you have no job. I though about it...and remembered I do know a resident in that home and dammit we will go visit him. The look on moms face when we arrived was priceless. I loudly stated...during the Wednesday night bingo she was hosting...Could anyone assist me in finding the room for "so and so"? Nobody there knew we were relted and me and the dogs were directed to the room location...lol...My mom says on the microphone she was using for calling Bingo...You are brilliant girl. I was determined nobody and "iffy rules" were going to get in my way for a training opportunity

Went great...wheelchairs, strangers, odd noises, different smells etc. all good exposure for them off the farm and they handled it well. Julio was giving kisses and Arriba was calm to be petted. The one problem though is Arriba isn't heeling as well as I would like. She wasn't pulling on the leash but she was travelling ahead of me and it's preffered to have an obvious relaxed slack leash. Gah she does it perfect at home but I'm hoping for the best come friday from both of them.

Can't wait to see what happens!!!
