Good Sunday morning everybody

Yesterday Morning , I spent some time on you tube - I looked up a UKC training video of Beginner Novice , Watched it several time's matter of fact , I'm a slow learner

Yesterday afternoon was pretty nice out , So Mr. Business and I headed out to try a few things - to gauge where we are , We started out just like they do in the video - with the walk to a 90 degree turn - then to the end with a 360 back , then the auto sit and so on - The first thing I thought of was Rosemary's post the other day , It's NOT easy as it looks , lol
All I can say is - we have work to do !!

Over the years - The Doctors have told me I needed to find a hobby - to relax and to get work off my mind - After all these years - I have found it , working with our dogs - All these years of looking , Thinking what I would enjoy and all that time - as they say , it was right under nose - just shaken my head here .

Side Note : The other day , I received a nice PM , It was constructive criticism on my posting abilities , They wrote that my posts are hard to follow and they don't have time to figure out what I'm saying . I found this PM interesting , NOT meant to be mean or Sh-tty - Just they were saying what they thought - BTW - I enjoy criticism that it to help out .
So my DT friends , If I get to rambling on and maybe post like I talk , I will try and do a better job in expressing my thoughts in a better way , But if I do type like I talk , that may be hard to change as I have been this way for over 60 years , lmao Thanks for the PM .

...Ken & crew

Just going to pop in to say...keep in mind there are venues OTHER than AKC that are great options if they are available to you, once you get to the point where you feel you may want to compete. For example, many people I know that do obedience start trialing in CDSP (Companion Dog Sports Program) because it's a nice segway to AKC...the exercises are pretty similar, and CDSP is a venue that is really dog and handler friendly. They allow you to reward the dog after each exercise. It's a really supportive environment. (You can also earn titles.) It's a way to bridge your training...for example, my dogs are rewarded frequently in training (and I think they should be - they are earning a "paycheck" for correct behavior). We do start to fade those out, but it can be hard for a dog to go from a training environment to a trial...no rewards, human is nervous, etc. So a venue like CDSP can be a nice transition.

The only other advice I have is to find what both you and your dog enjoy, and concentrate on that. You only have so much time together with your dog...IMO, if you aren't both having fun, it isn't worth it. My dogs and I enjoy scentwork, agility, Sypha enjoys a bit of obedience (me not *quite as much*! ), barn hunt...if it's fun for the both of you, do it! If you enjoy competing, great! If you don't, but you enjoy classes together, that's perfectly fine, too! I've seen dogs that LOVE nosework class and absolutely stress at trials...in my opinion...stop trialing those dogs. Let them enjoy classes and practices.

Anyway, just my feelings on this stuff. At the end of the day, it's about your relationship with your dog and the fun you have together. That's all.

Hmmm... maybe I need to get back to that list I was making....

I would just start training with your eye toward eventually competing (if that's what you want), and then when you are eventually feeling like you are close-ish to ready for the ring, you can start exploring what options are available. It takes a while to be ready, usually...you need to work your dog not only in your training facility, but then start "proofing" other places, because dogs don't generalize well. So...my advice is, just find a facility and trainer that you like, and you "click" with, and just start some classes. See if you like it. Go from there. Don't rush. Don't feel like you're in a hurry to compete. Enjoy the journey.

Ken,
You don't have to change your posts. You express yourself just fine. Your personality comes through and I kinda
like you just as you are.

Aw Ken, I wouldn't have anyone to pick on if you didn't ramble on in your own fashion--I can't say much anyway--I read some of my own posts and discover that between my stupid ISP which puts me at the bottom of the heap for messages (I type faster than the ISP accepts the characters) so that often what ever I was trying to say is lost entirely in the translation and the fact that I leave words and endings (like ing or ed or est) off all the time I'm surprised I haven't gotten a pm asking me to be more careful.

<snort> I don't have any problems following your trains of thought--geeze--maybe you style is my style...ramble on--if it's too hard to read maybe it's their problem and not yours.

Cressrb And Bug - Thanks for the kind words

Like I said - It was a interesting PM and like everything else - everybody has a opinion and I respect that .

I do like to improve on things and Know that English is one of my short comings - lol I have had problems with it since I was a young ECIN - lol Even in College , It was super hard - The Professor said that it was from poor teaching in grade school and on , She had seen it many times - She went over broad to help me with it , she was a true Professional .

Anyway , Everybody have a great day

...Ken

Good Morning DTers

I'm one of them Do it to learn type people , When I had Mr. B in his OB classes - the trainer kept telling to quit pulling on his lead - I " Thought " that I had no pressure on it , yet time and time again , she would bring this up . BTW - I was using a pinch collar on him .

Now - I'm have been working with Mr. B on some of the BN type training - I switched to a regular nylon collar - He leads just fine with out the pincher - sit's , stays - you name it . What I have now learned what the trainer was trying to get threw my thick skull - lol Any - Any pressure on the pinch collar - he would pick up -- as What's up , what am I doing wrong ?? With the nylon - he is a different dog - more at ease - and to me - do's the commands better , I did notice , sometimes when we were walking he would stop and look up at me = the collar must have been pinching him some and he was checking out why .

I had read - where you can not use a pinch collar in BN and that was the reason to switch - I wish I would have known this before hand and started this type of training sooner - Like I said - he's a different dog = much better .

It is amazing to me - that even the slightest pressure - even when you don't think you are Appling any - they pick up on it .

Still learning here - lol And tons more will be coming

Have a great day !

... Ken
