With Dax I always have to be hyper-aware of the other dogs around us. She adores all people, but sometimes will decide that THAT DOG - THAT ONE OVER THERE! is a threat and needs to be put in its place. Even if THAT DOG is one she's known forever. I believe I've mentioned that Dax has a tendency to be swayed by the alien voices in her head.
I know Teddy's a different dog altogether. He's confident, curious, inquisitive and noisy. I'm pretty sure he'll have no problem doing the "stuff." It's the sitting-quietly-like-a-good-boy-while-mom-listens-to-the-teacher that's going to be difficult for him. That's one of the reasons I don't travel light with my dogs - treats, toys, distractions galore. Sort of like having a perennial toddler, I imagine.
I'm looking forward to starting Teddy's "big boy" training. And a teeny bit sorry that he's already ready to be a "big boy."
