I didn't have anything to do so I thought I would take Popcorn for another walk. I never usually go at this time and now I realize why. gosh darn friday after school! Popcorn doesn't usually meet many kids so a field full of kids playing football was a nightmare! she kept running off and stealing their ball and I couldn't get her back, she was just running around a loopy mad thing. I eventually got her back, and after a while of being on the lead I thought I would let her off to play fetch(I was quite away from the children now). She chased the ball once then hurdled back towards the kids! I was absolutley mortified, then she saw another dog and she went to see that too, then she decided a swim would be great! Then she dropped the ball by the side of the river and I managed to lure her back with it. She was put firmly back on the lead and dragged me home. I'm so embarassed, I normaly let her off and she goes to see other dogs and people and I call her back and she turns around and comes back straight away. I don't want to let her off the lead now, I'm worried she will do this again. :( Jessie X
Popcorn is going to obedience class next Thursday. I am scared to death though. As she has a thing with pawing at other dog's faces, and jumping at them. If you read my other post, you'll get the whole scoop. I hope this obedience class will fix all of her little problems. Thanks Minnyar!
labs love kids, especially when they are puppies, they think they are other puppies, actually a lot of dogs do that. then all the fast movements and yelling kids do and their high voices get them excited even more!
