puppy Tia in adult dog class
« on: February 27, 2009, 06:52:48 AM »
Tia did AWESOME last night in class! Her recall was so amazing and her down stay (off-leash) was excellent! I'm so proud. Especially since she was the only puppy! It's so great to be back with a decent trainer. Originally, I had Tia in a "serious" puppy preparation class because I wanted to take her to an obedience title or two but the trainer was terrible and Tia was only one of two puppies anyway (which they never told me until I showed up and it was too late to get my money back). So we're back with a trainer we used before that I know is wonderful but doesn't take dogs through obedience training, etc. My quest to find a sane and supportive competitive training class for both dogs has been so frustrating. I could go on for hours on that topic, but I won't.

So, to make a long story short, a good trainer is worth their weight in gold and I am SO GLAD we are back working with ours. Stable training is more important than obedience titles, but hopefully someday I will find a place for that too! If anyone knows of someone in the greater Toronto area I am all ears!
