Training Day...

Amber & Scruffy being obedient...
Errr...maybe that title needs to be changed. Not so much of a training day today for our dogs actually but more of a play-play day for them.

The three monkeys having a little chat in the field...
Every Sunday, our dogs have their usual OB training at Taman Desa which starts at 8.30am & we'll always end the day around 1pm. It's a nice place for dogs to be I must admit. Big open space, cool fresh air, full of green grass, plants & trees, nice secured badminton court & a open basketball court. This place is like haven for dogs! This park also has a huge football field below it. Everytime after training, we let our dogs loose to run free & wild till they get exhausted. My trainer though doesn't like the idea that we fellas let our dogs run loose. Not only us but others too but he's a nice guy although fierce looking, he doesn't mind at it times...

All of them were too tired to even sniff around in the petshop...
There are quite a number of people & dogs there. So many bootiful pedigrees & mixed breeds. Chinese, Indian & Malay joggers & tai-chee fellas don't seem to mind the dogs beeing around them. We all share the park at one time. Nobody seemed to bother us because they are so used to seeing us every Sundays. Oh & another great thing about this Taman Desa place, near the park, there are rows & rows of shops including a pet shop & a restaurant that serves the MOST delicious chao kuay teow I've ever tasted in my life! Oh, and it's dog friendly too! The people there love dogs so they don't mind the dogs eating with their owners. Sometimes after training, we & Janice (Scruffy's owner) go there to eat the yummy mee. We always see all the trainers there too chillin out & chit-chatting.

n initially i tot janice stop d training edi..

n pacco is not their student, i dun think is okay for her to b there....n when she run, she really run until is uncontrollable...

Melissa-Jane said...

Yah, Janice call Scruffy Afee, or sometimes Fifi. I basically like to call him Fifi...Just like how I call my Amber, Ambush-a-mae. Like slang ya know? Each dogs have their own nicknames.

Scruffy's in Intermediate too, same class with Amber. Even if you're not the student there, after class, when everybody's done with the park, you just let her off-leash lah. My trainer wouldn't mind AS LONG, no dogs disturb his class.
