All Dressed Up in Puppy Training 101
This is the final session of Caring Kids Camp, summer 2012. Ten campers are working hard to teach five 7-week-old pups the beginnings of good manners in T3--Training, Treats & Tips. Part of the pups training is learning that people with hats, scarves, glasses, costumes, and other, potentially our of the ordinary, accessories are not to be feared. All dressed up, Sophia and Allegra train Gary, their ward for the week, how to sit, touch a target and lie down. Gary is star pupil when it comes to crate training. He often prefers napping in his crate during class time. Before he conks out for aa cat nap, he shows his teachers that, "Yes, I can touch your hand -- before I snooze -- when the reward is a yummy treat!"
