Actually they didn’t volunteered, I volunteered for them. In any case, Doc and Elvis helped the 4-H kids with their dog show training last Saturday and as you can guess, the smallest kids got the biggest dogs.
The kids ran their dogs up and down the driveway to burn some of the energy off the dogs before starting and then we broke into two groups.
Our group consisted of Doc, Elvis, and their two little handlers; we began with a game of “red light, green light”. In this game, the instructor says “green light” and the kids walk with their dogs, then stop when the instructor says “red light”.
Our groups switched after a bit and our group practiced walking in a circle, the “sit” command, and then the “stay” command where the dogs had to sit off-leash while their little handlers walked around them.
It was a lot of fun for both us and the kids, and some good experience for Doc and Elvis.
