Big Basin Dog Training Class
German Shepherd starts professional training wth a skilled GSD handler
First day of school
German Shepherd went poopy at glass door because it had been closed at night... The night before his first day of school, Tyler woke up Rusty in the middle of the night making short dog yelps. Rusty found Tyler in the living room trying to open the sliding glass door.

Rusty opened it. "Go poop!" Tyler ran out on the deck and waited. Rusty closed the door but Tyler was waiting for Rusty. He did not run down to poop. So Rusty opened the door and Tyler dashed back inside.

Confused, Rusty went back to bed.

The next morning this is what he found
Tyler had taken Rusty's old shoes from the trash (Rusty bought new ones that week) and placed them on the spot where Rusty stood to open the door.

Then Tyler pooped to show that he had wanted Rusty to walk him out to potty.

Rusty was amazed at the obvious message written by the young pup. "Dad! I tried to open the door but couldn't - then you did but you didn't walk out - so I had to do it inside but put your old shoes there so you'd understand what I had needed you to do."

German Shepherd puppy exhausted after a full day of adventures Soon enough class was over and he went home with his master, Rusty.

Tyler was so tuckered out from all that excitement that he fell asleep with his paws holding Rusty's feet.

Later in the afternoon Rusty took Tyler to The Woodward Reservoir. He attached a 30' lunge line to his collar. A nice helpful man named Kenny carried Tyler into the lake to let him swim.

Amazingly the wonder dog swam perfectly, as if he had lessons in a previous life time. He ran up the shore to Rusty and shook of his thick black coat of fur.

They went home where Tyler danced about playing with his toys. This had been the greatest ever day of his dog life.
