Ok this is more of a venting session for me but feel free to give your thoughts.
When Knuckles and I went to agility class tonight he seemed to have forgotten his sit stay which we have had down perfectly for quite some time. I know dogs are not supposed to do things in spite but I think he is quite annoyed with me because I went away for a week and a half. Although I did leave him with my brother who he adores (but my brother taught him some really bad habits while I was away and praised him and gave treats for them).
In the end I am really annoyed with myself because I have not taken any time since I have been home to work with him (it has been a little nuts). So in the end this is my fault. But during class the instructor kept saying you need to work and get down your sit stay. So I am more frustrated because I know we were fine prior to being away.
Oh and one more thing I want to add is that when I went to leave tonight for class and proceeded to use the leash I usually use, the leash was half eaten. I forgot my brother told me he was chewing the leash when he brought him to class last week (which is probably my other problem that I let him take him to class but I didn't want him to miss). But I am glad I realized it before I left because he would have broken the leash.
Anyone have any words of wisdom??

Have a great day!! :)
