Who parked in front of our house? Do you have a tennis ball?

Raw chicken wings. The breakfast of champions.

My Red dog after his Control Unleash class

He only got up to have a very small dinner and then again - because I insisted - for his before bed trip to the doggy outhouse.

Control Unleashed Class

This dog is working in the box. The are doing "Give me a break." That is why there is a chair in the ring.

This dog is almost asleep on his mat.

This dog is working for treats. She did relax a bit later into the class.

This dog is watching the instructor work with a handler and dog in the box.

This handler is watching (and waiting for) a clickable moment. Personally, I would have rapid-fire clicked this particular dog for just being on his mat.

This dog finally rolled on one hip while watching the dog in the box.

This puppy is getting extra special canned dog food from a squeeze tube while watching a dog in the box. It was his first time doing mat work around other dogs.
