Dave has been attending classes at the Fort Wayne Obedience Training Club for the past eight weeks. Last night was his last class in this session. He was training in the Sub-Novice class. The class is one of the first in the series on the road to Obedience Competition. Dave had to do heeling on leash, sit for a period of time away from his trainer, stand for exam, return and go into a heel position. We felt Dave was the star of the class!
Dave and his daddy did so well that Dad was asked to become a trainer and teach some classes. They felt he did such a good job with Dave and seemed to know what he was doing, that he would make an excellent trainer. Since he had done training for classes when we had Murphy, this is not a stretch for him.
We are now doing a lot of practicing at home with Dave and waiting for the next time he can attend classes. He will probably take the summer off and start again next fall. His next class will be Novice where he will be doing some of the same things, only at a more rigorous level. Congratulations Dave and Daddy!!!
