    just managing to post a blog and now it seems there are all sorts of fancy things I should be doing?

    Looks as if I am going to have to do some serious reading before I write my next post.

    I'm sorry, I really don't see the whole point of Twitter? Why would I really want to spend my time telling everyone what I'm doing in two sentence increments.

    Though maybe a good idea, when I see shows like Oprah making statements about how they historically joined Twitter I die laughing.

    A wonderful insight into the training and enjoyment of the Cavalier King Charles - and a joy to read.

    Instead, she stopped, dropped, and rolled. :S

    what is a good age to start trying to teach commands
    I taught Jaspar rollover when he was only a few months old. It is a bit more complicated than basic commands but we kept it fun and for puppies it is important never to expect a lot when they are under 6 months. You are really laying fun groundwork for more concentrated training they can handle when a bit older. Kind of like kindergarten vs. gradeschool. Jaspar could do this at 4-5 months fairly well but he is very sharp and easy to train.

    I was teaching Cedar to roll over a while back, then I took her as 'demo dog' to my training class. She was supposed to demonstrate a recall-down with hand signals, which she normally could do no problem. Instead, she stopped, dropped, and rolled. :S
