Well, he was better than the last meeting. Not much better. You can see from the photos above that he isn't paying any attention to me. 8-) Other dogs are a major distractor for him. MAJOR DISTRACTOR. Don said that he didn't know of anything to do to get them over it. I do know that with one other dog, he will calm down as evidenced by the time we went to lunch with another service dog and he did just fine. They both ignored each other.
In some ways these monthly meetings make me sad because Bingo can be so good and there is little evidence of it whenever there is another dog around. Just ask the Newman's whenever they bring their dog Milly to school. Mr. Bingo goes nuts for her.
Our obedience classes didn't start this week. Our trainer was sick. They start next week. Perhaps she will have some suggestions for keeping Mr. Bingo inside and letting sweet Bingo stay outside.
