So, this Saturday concludes the 10 weeks of the Bumpmeister's obedience training.....lol. I laugh because I don't think we will be graduating this time but that is ok. There will be a show ring and an AKC judge judging each dog and then a graduation ceremony. At least if he doesn't graduate he can take the class over for free as many times as we want to.

I am going to work hard all week on all that he learned, I just haven't been doing all the work that we need. One problem is his stand for examination. Apparently he is ticklish, and when I touch his side from a sit position he bucks like a bronco. It is hard not to laugh then because he is funny. He is good on down stays, but if another dog is too close, he will roll over and start to distract them to play with him. :) I guess I will just have to see what Saturday brings...the good part is that he does his figure 8's well, isn't bothered by other dogs in class other than wanting to play.

I will definately take some pics this Saturday and then post them. My grown up boy turns a year and a half on the 4th of July.

It may be the last day of this training *class*, but training continues for a very very long time ;) Congrats!

Sounds like you have a great class and are willing to work as long as it takes. It seems like training is never over and then the next thing you know you wonder where the gray beard came from.

I started class with Velma well over 4 years ago............... and never stopped :) Going to class is one of the social highlights of our week. We do take the summer off.

He sounds like he is doing well - keep it up, class is fun!

Hang in there! I laugh when we get compliments on our beagle, CJ, saying how good she is, she listens so well, etc. We thought she would never, ever, be trustworthy! It took a whole lot of work to get her to this point, and she isn't done yet!! We are starting a new class next week to get ring ready, should be fun! Or, I could stay home and hit my head on the wall....
Good luck on Sat!

Awww congrats! Nice you found a 10 weeks class, and really great if he doesn't graduate....it is free next time! Petey will be starting again pretty soon, I hope to get his good citizenship after a couple more sessions of Obedience class. I figure that would be a good certificate to have for an insurance agent!

Enjoy his half B'day!

Carol & Petey!
