Up the Academy

The newest Sieminski family member misbehaved big time on Monday — so we shipped her off to doggy boot camp.  Maisey’s displaying a little bit of dog and people aggression — sadly for me, I’m the person she chose to get aggressive with 😦  Not ones to ever F around, we sought help immediately.

Maisey will be living with our fabulous dog trainers Biggs & Twiggs Dog Rehabilitation and Training for two weeks. Antoine and Valerie will work with her on manners, obedience, leash walking and socialization with other dogs. It’s been 5 days since she left the house, and Valerie sends us nightly update texts with pictures and videos. Maisey’s catching on quickly, but still has more to learn.

On a serious note, Maisey is a big, strong puppy.  When she got aggressive with me, it was scary, I’m not gonna lie. Post-mastectomy, I just don’t have the upper body strength to show dominance over this baby beast. But Valerie and Antoine are the best of the best.  They said she’s just a cute, puppy who’s been spoiled up until now. She’s never been disciplined and just needs to know what the boundaries are.  Thankfully, they both believe she is fully trainable and that this issue can be overcome.

So, for now, our crazy Maisey is in reform school. I miss her adorable face…..

  1. What a pretty face. She is probably having a great time at “the academy”, learning and meeting new “friends”!
    It is great to know that there are places for our animal friends to learn good manners.
    Take care, Andrea. You are always in my thoughts and prayers.
    Love, MK
