Obedience Class and Real Life Situation

Last class went well. We practiced a few more things. I was surprised that many people in the class didn't show up for the last class. We didn't stay for the second class because I was too tired.

That morning was pretty rough. I was walking the dogs as usual in the AM. I came across a man that I usually see. Dino went to see him and was very excited. He kept jumping on this man even though I was telling him to sit several times. I finally got so frustrated that I just pulled him off to the side not letting him see this guy more. I got so frustrated that I got mad at Dino for embarrassing me. I told this to Vicki later that night after class. She said what I did was fine to pull Dino off to the side and not let him keep ignoring me to ask him to sit. She said to ask him only once and then if he doesn't do it, then pull him away from getting more attention.

I think that will work fine. I know he will have a hard time at first because he gets so excited, but eventually he will get it.
