I took Ziris to a breed handling class tonight. It was fun, there were alot of nice people. There was even another doberman! His name was Rusty, his sire was Chalmars The Big Red One (also a SchH III!) He was a really nice dog. I think I learned the most from one of the Junior Handlers! She was showing Rusty, and she helped me alot with Ziris.

We had fun. I will never take her to an AKC show, but I do plan on taking her to the ADA show in Maryland in March and entering her in the baby class :D (3-6 months) I think it will be fun for us, it is FCI standards.

Now I know why all you show people do what you do........it was fun. I have to say though........Ziris is a nutball.......Im worn out!

Well, I guess this really isnt a "class" per say either. But it is a bunch of people who show their dogs. Like next week they will all be at a show, there is only one or two that arent going, so it will be a smaller group next week. It is a not for profit, dog training club. You pay $10, and I think that is just to pay for the lights and the facilites (which were really nice)

We also finally met the TDI (Therapy Dog) Evaluator, and Piper is going to start that next month. I have to go with them for a visit without her, then she has 3 supervised visits, then takes the test. So I am pretty excited about that to. They do visits to nursing homes once a week, so hopefully we will be doing that also.

Be sure to let us know how your "class" goes also Okie-Dobie! If it was anything like mine, you will leave tired!

I doubt it, I have alot to learn before I start thinking along those lines. If three years down the road, she turns out to be some super specimin of a doberman, I would take it into consideration, but right now, I have no plans for her.

I just want to do as much with her and Rommel as I can, IMO just because an animal isnt breeding quality, or wont be bred, doesnt mean you shouldnt try to title them, and do as much as you can with them.

edited to add: Piper also...which is why I think the therapy dog thing will be great for her. She doesnt do any "formal training" but she is good with basic obedience. There is nothing that she loves more than interaction with people, she is such a sweetie, and she has brightened our lives so much, maybe she can contribute to others as well.

I'm not sure of the dam of Rusty, I will ask him next time I see him, he will be at a show this week so I wont see him. I knew the sire was a Champion and SchH III, I didnt know that he produced a CH, SchH III though, who was it? Rusty is a really nice dog. Do dogs earn points being shown with Jr Handlers? How does that work? Is it the same?

Codys Mom go to www.AmericanDobermann.com and click on the top link that says National Meistershaft, ZTP & CAC Show March 16-17-18
It is the American Dobermann Winner Cup, a big working trial, then the CAC show is on Sunday the 18th. I just want to go watch all of the working dobermans, they will be coming from all over. So I figure...why not enter Sundays show, its only $40! Might be fun. The judge who is judging it is actually the same judge who is doing the ZTP's at elly's club next week. Crazy huh...small world.

Well CM and JM I hope that you can make it! I think it is going to be alot of fun, and I would love to meet you both! Im not sure if dogs that are not showing can come or not??? You might email them and ask.

Brum, I have to admit of all the people that were at the class, I was most impressed with the Jr handler. She was fabulous with the dogs. They said she has been doing it her whole life, they said she will sometimes handle 6 or 7 dogs at a time. Dont know how that works, but she seems to love it!!

I finally got Rommels Scorebook in the mail from Schutzhund USA, and depending on when Scott leaves for deployment in February we are going to do Rommels BH either the 10th-11th or the 24th-25th. Im gonna be busy the next couple of months!
