Back Slide ... Oops!

With visiting guests, Henry has shown some serious backslide on training lessons.  Henry is now one of those irritating little dogs demonstrating unwanted kisses and lap leaps for perfect strangers.  He loves everyone - and everyone is his best friend.

I like his exuberance when I come home.  He is so happy to see me.  He leaps and licks and spins and leaps all over again.  But it is not just me.  Henry is an equal opportunity licker.  It is time for a little remediation.  Some folks do not want to feel the love.

Oh, Dog Whisperer, where are you when I need you? I've heard you have gone to Europe and are dealing with the big boys now.  No more little white fluffy pups showing themselves just a shade off perfect. Sigh. What would take Cesar Milan two minutes to fix will take his bumbling human forever.  Forever with Henry is, fortunately, a fun thing.

  2. You're looking at this wrong. Until you realize that "Backslide" and words like this are bad affirmations. Like us, someday you will learn that the only way to retain your sanity is to think of this behavior as normal and only invite company that love to have hounds jump on and lick them.
