    DefaultI am so blessed...

    with such wonderful obedience trainers that Caleb and I take classes from. As some of you know we take classes from a couple who have consistently been top trainers, competitors, multiple OTCH's in multiple breeds and she is a judge as well. As some of you also know Caleb has developed a sit stay problem with me out of sight. I got three e-mails from her this morning telling me that we'll get through this and to not be discouraged along with some things to work on with him. Three! These are busy people here! I know so many people are afraid of them or think they are stand offish but they have lots of people who want to train with them and be seen with them. I cannot get over getting so many e-mails all geared to keep us from being discouraged!

    You are lucky. All I have is folks who like to give "unsolicited advice".

    Caleb will get over it. Keep at it!

    that is so thoughtful - the sign of an excellent educator - motivation is such a critical part of any learning curve

    Linda was very nice when she answered my request for a judging assignment. Glad she is there to help with Caleb's issues.

    Yep - that's so nice. My first obedience instructor was nice and helpful, and seemed to like Emilu - then when we advanced on and joined the training club, my instructor was not really very nice, and never said a kind word to me OR Emilu. It would have been so nice to hear something encouraging. My instructor now is good, but I could see where she might be scary to many people. But again, it would be nice to hear some encouraging, kind words sometimes.

    I think good trainers are worth their weight in gold.

    It took me awhile to warm up to our agility instructor, he comes off as standoffish and has a bit of a quirky, very dry sense of humor. But, he's amazing with Peanut. Totally an out-of-the-box thinker, and she really needs that. If ever we compete at all, it will be 99% due to his creative training.

    You asked Linda to judge for you? When? What club? Did you tell her you know me? Some think she's a hard judge -- she's fair and I like that.

    100lbs of gold is worth about $1.1 million dollars I think a good trainer may be worth more..lol

    Light, "weedy" individuals are definitely incorrect; equally objectionable are cloddy lumbering specimens. Labrador Retrievers shall be shown in working condition well-muscled and without excess fat. Females should weigh between 55 and 70lbs and Males between 65 and 80lbs. Height females 21.5 to 23.5 inches males 22.5 to 24.5 inches at the withers.
