The notion of a dog training class as a place where they are trained is only half of the picture. Today was training class day. We are now in our third level of classes. Each level lasted 10 weeks. Even with all that training behind us it is not until now that it is dawning on me it is not just Red who has to learn. In order for it all to work I have to be a good trainer. Slowly I am learning that this is more complicated than I expected. At the end of level one a friend of mine asked what I had learned . I replied I do not have enough patience. I now realize that is not my only shortcoming. I guess I will need a few more classes.
