Now it's time for us to move onto the Novice class which means forking over more money. This time it's a bit more expensive ($275) but we also get more classes (10 as opposed to 6). Here is a great example about how subjective wants and needs can be. Obedience training is a little bit of a want and a need. I feel like it's money well spent because we have a better behaved dog; However, I understand that we could probably do without the classes and continue working at home for another month or two. Another factor to consider is the added travel time - the class is near my work, so that is an added day's worth of gas and tolls. I'm sure you've all seen the price of gas recently.
We decided to wait a few weeks before enrolling her in the Novice class. I will be helping a friend out at his restaurant on St. Patrick's Day so we'll use some of that money towards her "education". We have free passes towards the school's daycare facility so we'll rely on that to keep the exercises fresh in her mind.
Without receipts, I'm not really sure what the other $132.18 was spent on. I know I bought food once ($35.00) and rawhides on two occasions (@$9.99 each), but other than that, I don't know. I'll have to add "keep receipts" to my rules.
But as my friend Patty once said "it's still cheaper than a child."
