Hi everyone! On Saturday, Mom took me to the beach and I had a blast! We went to Mexico Beach, which is a lovely beach about 20 minutes from home that's dog friendly on one side (oddly enough, the dog friendly side is MUCH nicer).
I was nearly perfectly behaved! I didn't bark (I went through fazes at 4,5,7,9 and 14 months where I barked at everything), was very good around two other (off leash, out of their owners' control, much bigger) dogs, did perfect on stays, wait, sit, down and most importantly come. I got to be off leash 90% of the time, and Mom even called me off chasing some birds.
Dachshund Mommy: Nola did incredible, I'm glowing with pride.
Since she enjoys training and learning so much, I'm going to really crack down on her training and continued socialization and hopefully she will take and pass her Canine Good Citizen Test next year!
Here are some of the (nearly 2,000) pictures Mom took while we were at the beach. Enjoy!
Kisses and Tail Wags,
P.S. Let me know if you'd like to read a post on what Mom does with my training, I've been debating doing one for a while now.
