Today we had dog training class, and it went pretty well for the most part… until I ran over Felix’s paw in my wheelchair!
I am too upset about the paw-running-over to talk much about how the rest of class went. We worked on heeling, on platform work, on comes, and on stepping off (the first step of heel).
Near the end of class, we did a practice rally course. Felix did pretty well, but near the end he had to do a down and he laid down so his paw was in front of my front wheel. I didn’t notice it, and drove off right over his poor paw!!!! I felt terrible. He didn’t appear to be injured, but he certainly remembered it because for the rest of class he didn’t want to be near my wheelchair. I spent the last 15 min of class just trying to get him re-acclimated to the wheelchair.
And then when I got home, I showed Brad the video and he kinda yelled at me about it (or I feel like he did), which made me feel even worse. I know, I messed up big time.
