    DefaultEnrolling Bentley in Obedince classes

    I am joining 4-H this year and doing dog obedience. They have dog shows,agility or obedience. bentley doesn't fit AKC standards so that was a no and I love agility but my gut says Obedience so I am going with obedience. My friend joined last year with her dog and got 2nd in STATE! I was so happy for her and her dog. She said she wants me to join with her. It is only 20$ and they have to get rabies update(done) and I think Kennel cough(correct me if I am wrong). I am cheating,lol. She is telling me some of the things they learn so I am getting a head start. I think it will be a great way to create a bigger bond with Bentley and help with his socilization. I don't expect to place I am doing it for the fun of it

    Any good tips to help me and Bentley be the best of the class? I have been thinking about it for 2 weeks now and decided I want to do it.

    [You'll have fun!! And good for you, joining 4-H.

    here is a link to the Canine Good Citizen test. Don't know what your obedience class will cover. It will be good to learn new things that is not covered in the test.

    Good luck to you and Bentley!! Wish we lived just a smidge closer, (I am in SW Michigan). I think if you "commercial train" (Train during a couple commercial breaks each day...adds up to about 10-15 minutes), you will surpass 90% of America!! It adds up and from what little I know of you, I KNOW you can do it, and be one of the best!
