Well, we've entered the terrible stage of jumping on the kiddos! Mostly the baby (Laila), but also anyone else who sits or lays down on the floor. She, for some reason, takes sitting or laying down as her cue to go bananas and jump and play, and search for cute little ears to tug on! Bob, my DH, said I should use the word command "Off!" So that's what I've started doing. I may have to find myself a couple "Doodle Bonkers" like another DK member mentioned! (Paper Towel rolls).
Also of interest, we have decided to switch Sable's Puppy Kindergarten class from the Vermont Therapy Dogs Puppy Prep school, to a local trainer and breeder. http://www.starvalegoldens.com/boarding_training.html Peg is the ladies' name, and she seems very experienced and knowledgeable. She also is a certified CGC Tester. Bonus: She is ONE town away from me (5 miles max), as opposed to over an hour drive! My DH made me "see the light" on this decision and I humbly took his advice! Her new class start date is Monday, Sept. 28th.
