Farley's training, part 3

My post yesterday made a dangerous assumption; I assumed that Elly would be an active participant in Farley's obedience training. It's entirely possible that she will not attend any of the classes or learn any of the commands that Farley does end up getting taught. That would entail an attention to process that she lacks. The end result is that we would have a dog that is trained and a primary care-giver who doesn't know how to get him to do things. Since she doesn't know to control him (and doesn't want to find out how to), she can turn around and whine that Farley is unteachable and that the class was a waste of money. It wouldn't be the first time that Elly blamed the victim of her incompetence for the result of her failings and it won't be the last.
