Yesterday I headed to the closest Pet Smart Store to purchase a special dog food for Luci. Her choice is Blue Buffalo, Basics, made from nature's bounty of plants.
I had a $5.00 coupon from Blue Buffalo, however, it was for their pupply mixes !
The sales person, a dog trainner for the store was kind enough to take the coupon anyway, lest I not make the purchase!
My conversation with Ms Sales Lady turned out to be a blessing in disguise. She had time on her hands and was willing to listen to my story of Luci's resistance/non socialized with other dogs ! She had the perfect solution of a Training Class to begin on February 14, 2011 for socializing dogs ! I was excited and after hearing the details, I signed Luci up for the next six weeks ! The cost was more than I expected...as I had to pay upfront for all the classes...Ms. Sales Lady threw in another $10.00 discount coupon !
I was told to bring something that belonged to Luci so othat she would feel at ease for her first encounter with other canines ! I suggested her bed, which she loves, but after thinking it over, she might get confused with 'going to bed ' at her lesson !
More work for Luci's 'parent' coming up with something she likes and feels is hers...hummm...the thought arises that she may be possessive about what's hers...oooooh...the woes of a new 'Adventure with Luci'...
More to come after our first class !
