Temper tantrum Canine Style

I have to share this because I find it pretty amusing; sorry if you don’t 😀

Geordi (the Beagle) and I are doing advanced obedience again. This class is all off leash and we have passed it before. We loving going back though! Shadow has been thru the class like.. 5 times?.. our trainer is amazing and I love what she teaches. Anyways… Monday came around it was class time.

I rushed home from my temp job, got the dog treats ready, grabbed the collar and Geordi, and headed out to the (new) car. This was his first trip in it and he hated it!! In the old car he rode on the middle arm rest. When Shadow is in the car with us it use to be Me, Geordi, then Shadow all away cross the front. It probable would have been a cute picture if I ever had the photo taken. In this car though the armrest is all wrong for sitting on. He can sit on it but his balance is wrong so he falls into my lap. I do not allow my dogs to ride in my lap! I don’t mind him leaning against my arm/shoulder but being is my lap is not an option. He ended up riding in the back seat; the least favorite place in the car. I have no idea why he wouldn’t ride shot gun because that seat was open.

So we get to puppy class and he decides that in revenge for the car he is going to forget everything! There was no proper heeling, no sitting when stopped, comes were all crocked, and sitting up from a down earned me dirty looks. Ugh! This coming from a dog that knows all these things and typically does them almost perfectly! Thankfully my training didn’t say anything about it; she must have summed it up to an off night.When we got to agility portion of the night he behaved perfectly, of course! On the other hand though Shadow has adapted to the car just fine. She’s even learned what the new car looks like and will got to it at the dog park when I pull out my keys; it’s amazing how smart dogs are.

Just thought I would share my amusing story about Geordi and his temper tantrum.
