My wife placed into my trusting care our two year old little boy while she does other things around the house. So over the last couple of days to keep him busy I popped in some of my training DVD's. He gets really into it. Laughing at the dogs running on the screen and pointing and showing me that there are doggies on the TV. He already follows me around the house and has watched me numerous occasions training.
So then he starts learning the commands. SIT, HERE, FETCH. You know all the good ones. Repeating it loudly with authority. Then he started immitating a whistle and even casting saying BACK. It was a proud moment for me.
Well....one day my wife picked him up from day care. It seemed that my son decided to do some training on his own. But his day care buddies were the recipients. The day care provider wanted to know what was going on and why was he repeating those specific words so loudly. I was laughing so hard. But my wife wasn't. She wanted to know why I didn't put in a cartoon for him to watch like a normal person. She said we have to be careful that we put in something educational. I said that I thought it was educational....besides what is educational about a green dude named Shrek. She still wasn't laughing.
