More Bully Project!

6 Apr

Our 10am class with Bully Project went so well, we were all amped up to keep going with our 11am class. We had another group of great dogs to help and teach. The structure of our class was exactly the same as the 10am class, starting with “focus,” and moving on to commands like, “sit,” “stay,” and “down.”

Here are a few of our students from the 11am class:


Latona is happy-go-lucky little girl, but very smart with great focus. Her parents brought her to class and took advantage of having a partner to work with Latona.

We also had this big lug:


Buddy is very strong, but his only goal is leaning up against someone and saying, “Hello.” He’s a super friendly boy, with a lot of energy, and his parents were very excited about learning how to teach him some basic obedience. We got them set up with an Easy Walk Reflective Harness and Leash set! Flashy, right?

We had some puppies joining us at this class, too, like Shea:


Shea is only 5 months old and took to learning like a fish takes to water. I mean, this girl is smart, and only wants love. Her parents recently adopted her and added her to their pack which already includes a husky and some cats!


Isis is our youngest student in the classes this session at only 3 months old! At the end of class, we gave everyone a free frisbee, which Isis could possibly use as a sled if there were snow on the ground.

We have a feeling she’s going to be a rockstar, just like Kiara, who was our Wordless Wednesday this week. Kiara came to classes last year as a 3 month old puppy, and now she’s heading towards her Canine Good Citizen certification!

Next, we had Keita, who has recently been adopted as well. Keita was a bit shy at first, understandably – lots of new people, dogs, and surroundings. But once the cheese came out, she warmed up pretty quickly. Keita’s whole family (Mom, Dad and sister) came to class so that everyone could be on the same page when working with her at home – how smart!


We have class again this Sunday – so there will more pictures, posts and videos to come! We’re so excited Bully Project is back in full swing!

    I’ve met some of these dogs, and others are new to the area. I hope that they all end up coming to Ft. Tryon on a regular basis. They’re wonderful.
    You guys are impacting positively on all of us. Thank you!
