Hi, I have been a little "busy" with Watney so haven't had time to post but have used a lot of the advice on the forums regarding training and what a difference it has made....she has been wonderful. Her temperment is definitely more laid back than my other two previous goldens but she is just as smart. Without a doubt, there are moments of frustration, but noone is perfect, especially me! I found having a puppy at this time of year was difficult to find a puppy class that fit my schedule due to holiday timing for some training facilities, (which I totally get!), but someone on here recommended Finish Forward in Saco, ME and I am so happy I found them. Shannon is wonderful and while I know it can sometimes be harder to train humans as opposed to the pups, she has shown so much patience with everyone. So grateful. I hope everyone had a happy Thanksgiving, we did!
