We've tried, we've worked hard, Becky has come up with various ways to motivate them, to give them consequences, and all kinds of rewards.
And still, they bite, play rough, and in general do a terrible job at being obedient!
But, no, we're NOT TALKING ABOUT OUR KIDS.
We've written a post like this before and want to be clear, WE ARE STILL HOMESCHOOLING our kiddos!
Instead, our perros are heading to a boarding school.
Kody has gotten increasingly wild and disobedient and any behavior modification we have tried hasn't worked.
I know we just introduced him to you yesterday, but he's been with us since Colorado, We haven't introduced him to you sooner, because we were nervous he wasn't going to work out, but he's been with us for over 3 months and we've determined we want him to be a part of our family. However, if he is to continue to be a part of our family we need him to behave better so we needed help in getting him trained.
When we found a dog training school for Kody we figured MooMoo could use a bit of help as well to lessen her anxiety and aggressive behavior toward some other dogs.
So, this past Thursday we dropped Kody and MooMoo off at Dog Training School with Enrique in Cabo San Lucas. Enrique is the best in Baja and comes well recommended by everyone we've enquired of. We will be moving to Cabo at the end of this week since we will need to participate in the training process with both dogs 2-3x/week for the following 2 weeks.
We hope this process goes smoothly both for the dogs and for those Kortmans (read: Alia and Josiah) who are feeling some anxiety about being separated from the dogs.
In fact all of us have been commenting about how "there's just something missing around here". Or "now would be the best snuggle time with the dogs", or "wouldn't it have been great to see the dogs on this hike?"
Here's hoping that we survive the week of no contact with our perros.
