Home for Irish Setter Lovers Around the World
Ellie is now 7-1/2 months old and has her first show May 2nd thrue 5th. She is entered in the puppy class which I've heard can be a bit like putting a pack of wild hooligans together in the ring. Although she minds pretty well when we are alone she is a terror when with other people or dogs. It took weeks to teach her not to jump on the kids at the elementary school and just enjoy them petting her. She is not aggresive, just goes into hyper play mode, and amnesia as to her training. Has anyone got any advise for me? I have a nightmare vision of her jumping all over the judge, show herself as a total idiot, and get disqualified.
