I enrolled Avila in a training class. Little did I know that her training focused on changing me. After three weeks of dog training class, the way I look at the world changed. I have a role to play in helping people on their journey to success.
As I embraced my “retired” life, I decided to find something for Avila and me to do while Nancy worked.
A few weeks ago, we started a beginner’s dog training school.
To be clear, Avila is a very smart dog. She had some training in the past. Avila was housebroken when she arrived just about a year ago.
In a matter of days, she learned that Rayann’s room was “off-limits.” If Rayann leaves her door open, Avila will lay in the hallway looking into the room, never crossing the threshold.
Avila understands she is not allowed on any furniture except her chair. As the family gathers for an evening in the living room, she quickly jumps into her spot.
She is an intelligent dog. So I thought it might be fun if she learned a few more things.
