Today I had to get up early (Sunday) to take the little one to puppy school. Some of you may have saw my little rant I had on Twitter regarding the dog trainer. If not, I'll tell you the story. So basically we get to puppy school and Ava has graduated into the basic class from the puppy class. So the first trick the trainer wants all the dogs in Ava's class to do is 'Puppy Pushups'. I knew as soon as he said that it meant she would have to drop to the floor, which she doesn't do.
If you haven't seen any pictures of Ava, she is a 6 month old Pomeranian weighing 1.8kgs. Her body is literally 4-5 inches from the floor, she is tiny. I went ahead and never said anything, knowing Ava would just sit there and drop her head because she can't 'drop' to the floor, she basically is at the floor standing! The trainer then comes round and I say to him jokingly, "Ava won't drop, she doesn't like getting her fur wet" and he looked at me in disgust and said "She will, that's no excuse, keep trying". Yep so I kept trying, still nothing.
He then stops the class and looks directly at me and says "When people say to me "My dog won't drop because she doesn't like wet grass, I tell them, Your dog is a princess, and you have made her like that. It's you that doesn't want her to get her hair wet."
I looked at him like :O !! He was a total little dog hater. Can he not see that she cannot realistically drop to the floor, there is no need for her to do that.
Yes, I admit, Ava is spoilt and we do treat her like a little princess but this guy was just so out of line! We have been training her to do this since she was 10 weeks old. Gosh, anyway, You know when someone says something out of line to you and you just stand there in shock then go home and be like, "Uh, I should have said that to him!" Yeah that was me all day! Ha!
Okay so enough of my little story. If you have got to this point, wow thanks! I know I ramble :)
