Can Dogs Send Their Humans to Obedience School?

Hi everyone! It’s Dakota and yep I am SUPER LATE posting today. It is  NOT my fault. It IS my Mom’s fault!

Mom was supposed to post a really cool give-away from

click on their photo to visit them!

I received a box of really fun items from Five Wags and I was supposed to tell you about them today AND have a give-away. Well, my Mom didn’t have the best week and she misplaced the email telling her how many winners we are allowed to have, and she can’t do the blog post until she has that information.

She emailed Five Wags this morning to tell them how she  lost the email totally screwed up, and she is waiting to hear back from them. If they get back to her before the weekend is over Mom will go ahead and do the review/give-away. If they don’t get back to her til next week we will just post the give-away at another time.

I am super sorry…you just can’t get good help today that is for sure!

I’m surprised she didn’t say that the DOG ATE HER EMAIL!

Does anyone know of any obedience classes that I can send my Mom to?

She sure needs them!

  1. Hi Dakota! Hi Miss Caren! Please say hi to Cody!
    First, if you find the Human Obedience School let me know…our moms can go together to get “straightened out”.

    Second, I saw your comment on my blog and when I checked my post draft, you were in the list but the typist (mom) must have missed you all while typing in the blog. I have disciplined her accordingly and have made her correct her mistake! Your links now appear in the post.

    Lastly, if she ever uses the excuse “the dog ate it” I think that gives you permission to eat something important…so steal away!

    Have a great weekend!
    Your pal, Oz

    • Hi Oz! we sure will say hi to Cody too! BOL! Ok! It’s a deal! We can send our Moms together! Awwww thank you for adding us!!!!!!!! That was so nice of you!!! BOL! Mom and I love your sense of humor! I steal everything but now that i have your permission I will do it even more! You have a great weekend too! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  2. Well, she can go with my human then, if that’s ok with you, Dakota!

    • It sure is Texas! That sounds like a plan! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  3. Hi Cody-
    If you find a Human Obedience School, please let me know about it. My human sure could use some training! And, I’d be sending my Dad ‘cuz Mom is really great about giving me everything I want all the time. Dad needs to learn!!

    If she uses the “Dog ate my email” excuse, I’d be eating something or tearing up something real quick!!

    Hope you get here straightened out soon- Let me know how it works out – Noah!

    • Hi Noah!! Actually this is Dakota…Cody is a cat and he has his own blog 🙂 I know it is confusing because we both have these RIDICULOUS Wild West names!! BOL!! Let’s look for an Obedience School for all of these Mommies! Sounds like we could fill a stadium with them! BOL!! Ok you can send your Dad, mine could probably come too! Thanks Noah!! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  4. we just checked out five wags and need to get our mommy to sign us up, we love surprises, maybe it wasn’t your moms fault, blame the computer and let us know when the giveaway is posted because we want to enter it

    • Roxy maybe wait! I am going to be having a give-away! I swear I am BOL!! If you are following the blog you will know! (wink!) Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  5. If you find a “correctional school for the discipline of wayward and errent mummies” can you let Me and Nellieknow. Lord knows We need all the help We can get dealing with a mummy who forgets to give Us our morning and evening dinner at a reasonable time, never lets Us snooze on warm and comfortable beds, like brother and sister let Us. Needless to say Me and Nellie could go on and on……..

    • Ohhhhh Jasper! I think we should start a school for “wayward mummies!!!” BOL!! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  6. Welcome to my world Dakota..BOL My Humom and your’z are not sisters are they, better still twins..BOL xxooxx

    Mollie and Alfie

    • BOL!!! “Twins!!!” I love it and Mom says she will take it cause she thinks you are waaaay younger than her so that sounds great! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  7. Well Dakota, my mom screws up too. I can remember back when I was a pup, I screwed up (very little, mind you) but my mom was always loving and gave me another chance to make it right so it’s only fair you give your mom a chance to make it right. Keep the licks coming! Positive reinforcement always works 😉

    • Joan I think that is an excellent idea! I like how you think! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  8. Moms – You can’t live with them and you can’t live without them!
    PS and if yous finds the Obedience School for Moms, let me knows and me will send mine too!

    • BOL!! There seems to be a few Moms who should go, maybe we could get them to ALL share a dorm together? Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  9. My mom is an over-organized planner, but let’s face it, sometimes the plan gets messed up and we will all survive…well, mom has trouble with being off schedule but has not died yet…so when you get the info, then post and sometimes a post at a new times finds new readers, look on that bright side of the day 🙂

    • believe it or not my Mom is normally quite “over organized” herself!! Part of the problem is she has TWO blogs and posts almost every day on both. She is hard on herself because she IS organized 🙂 Barks and licks and love, Dakota

      • My mom has 4 wp sites that she works on, 3 have blogs, so we totally get that. The one blog does post daily, the other two a few times a week. Mom gets frustrated too!

      • Touche!! 🙂 Love, “Mom”

  10. Oh Dakota, pweeze don’t be so rough on your Mom. She haz you, Cody, Daddy, her blogs, her footyball teams and so much things to worry about. She got a lot o n her mind. Does human obedience skool give homework. she might say you ate that, watch out. BOL /tailwags and pawhugs,


    • Chazz she has NO excuse. Barks and licks and love Dakota

  11. Oh Dakota, humans are brutally flawed in so many ways. Nothing like perfect shelties.

    GIve your mom a break, she does the best she can given the fact that she is a mere human.

  12. Oh, ha ha, I am sure my dogs will agree that I should be sent to obedience school too! We humans do seem to screw up a lot! 🙂
    They also can’t wait to see what they might get to win from Five Wags!

    • Jan it will hopefully be SOON!!! Thanks for your patience!! Love, “Mom” Oh and I meant “soon” about the give-away, not about you going to obedience school lol

  13. I’ve heard of places called boot camp before Dakota. It might kind of be like obedience school for humans. 😉

    • that sounds like a GREAT idea! Barks and licks and love Dakota

  14. You should send you mom for a holiday, instead, for some R&R 😉

    • Now Mom says she LOVES how you think!! No wonder Huskies are so smart!!! Mom sends you LOTS of love! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

      • We can’t send you on a holiday, but we have an award for you on our blog 🙂

      • thanks so much! Will be over soon! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  15. Hey buddy – I think obedience school for our peeps is an excellent idea. I know M & D could certainly use it as they don’t listen to me very well. Let me know if you find somewhere we can sent them and I’ll be the second to sign mine up.

    • you got it Mario!! I sure will! Barks and licks and love Dakota

  16. Hoomins…can’t live wif ’em don’ t wanna live wifout ;em…Dakota pal, we dawgs just gotta cut our hoomins some slack…dey do da best dey can wif limited resources…and you know we love ’em *snoogles*

    • gizmo you are soooooooooo right!! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  17. Don’t worry, Dakota! My mom is no better, in fact, she is worse. She is completely hopeless most of the time and I don’t think any obedience school will take her in. 🙂


    • Oh Eva you made me laugh when you said an Obedience School wouldn’t even take your Mom!! You silly girl!! Barks and licks and love Dakota

  18. I agree, Dakota…that’s so true! It starts in school with: “the dog ate my homework” and it raises to “the dog ate my e-mail, invoice, passport, money or myself” Please send me the address of an obedience school for humans, if you will find one… I’ll bet my staff has to spend years (or centuries?) there ;o)

    • BOL Easy!!! Do you have any there? Maybe we could all take a trip? Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  19. If you find a class, I’ll send my mummy too:-)

    • Misaki that sounds like a plan! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  20. I think there is such a school Dakota, it’s called BlogPaws. 😉

    Hey we all misplace things at one time or another, I’m sure you’ve done it at least once. 🙂

    • Nope Jodi….they don’t teach Obedience 🙂 Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  21. Dakota – sometimes you just have to forgive the humans, they lose things easily. Once my Mom forgot she fed me so we convinced her to fed us again. Use it to your advantage. – Sofie Bear

    • BOL!! I like that!! More meals!! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  22. We hope you sort it all out. Our people can be so disorganized sometime. Clearly they need training!

    • We hope we do too (wink)…so far we haven’t heard anything 😦 Barks and licks and love, Dakota and Mom

  23. I think Toby would enroll me in a class if he could. Good think he’s off snoozing somewhere and didn’t see this post. 🙂

    • I’m gonna show him when he wakes up 🙂 Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  24. Haha….Dakota, I think you need to give her a time out.

    • that ALSO sounds like a plan! BOL! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  25. Our mom needs to go to! We’ve tried giving her a swift kick in the rear but that didn’t work. Moms….they kind of do whatever they want!

    • Hmmmm “a swift kick in the rear” sounds like a good idea for my Mom…might have to do that! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  26. I don’t know of any obedience classes but if you hear of any sweet Dakota please let me know…Mumsy could sure use some training. Hugs and nose kisses, Chancy

    • Chancy I am keeping my eyes peeled! Will let you know if I sniff anything out! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  27. BOL! I think my Mom would lock herself in the bathroom for days just to avoid goin to Obedience School ;P

    Waggin at ya,

    • BOL!! Barks and licks and love, dakota

  28. Love the line…my dog ate my email. Mommy says she will have to use that line at work sometime. Oh, grandma likes the photo of Dakota. She says that’s a nice pattern of the carpet or sofa or whatever that was that Dakota is laying on.

    • lol!! Thank you!! It is an area rug in our living room…thank you!!!!!!! Love, “Mom”

  29. Dakota, Human obedience school is the most popular idea ever – too bad our mom is probably beyond trainable. She tries hard but is a below average learner. Luckily, we’re very tolerant here.

    • I’m with ya….my Mom is a “below average learner” too BOL! Barks and licks and love, Dakota
