Take ou the word "Monty" and replace it with "Lola".

We also use the "Look" command and she'll look directly into my eyes - she'll do it every time if there is nothing better to look at. Our obedience instructor said to just keep practicing in low distraction areas and up the distraction level gradually. So, we keep at it. Sometimes I think "it'll never get better", then she gets a little better and I'm so proud. A day or two later I think "it'll never get better"...

That's a great picture of Mikey there. Oh... I'm so jealous wanting a little tri-colored Frenchie. :-)

Thanks again. He's our little tri-color baby. After adopting him, we were almost thinking about BJ, the other tri-color that just got adopted. Eventually I think we'll have to get Mikey a brother or sister... :wink:

Hehe... I know having a buddy would be great for him.

The instructor is actually certified to give the CGC test herself, so we'll see how far the 4-lesson package will take us. The instructor has over 17 years worth of training experience and is a CPDT, so I'm feeling good about this.

We are going to concentrate on: Come (with distractions), and loose leash walking. After that, I'm not sure, but we would definitely like him to learn more cool tricks! :D
