    DefaultBaxters Excellent Show Day

    Baxter and I spent the day at the Columbus Training Club Obedience Show today - He got a first place in Rally Advanced A for his RA title, and a 4th place in Beginners Novice B Obedience, for his first leg. He did pretty good, but we need to work on his heeling and ring attitude. I refuse to have another dog that doesn't heel well. On the other hand, he is a very pleasant show partner - I never have to worry about him being reactive to other dogs. He brought home 3 squeaker toys, and I bought Emilu a new show collar - guess now I have to start showing her again

    Sometimes the hardest part isn't letting go - but learning to start over.

    Pat - message me here or on Facebook if you want some pointers on getting him to enjoy heeling more. We finished our BN back in December and I've struggled since then to get my "happy dog" back in the ring. It's been a long road, but I've switched up my training methods and it seems to have worked.

    Will do! Both of my dogs best attitude in the ring has been their first show, and it's downhill from there.
