Beau's journey through the dog club

  1. 14th October 2007 - Sonny to go to Obedience Classes too

    Last week at obedience, in the distance I saw a lady training two little Maltese Terriers. This got me thinking about the possibility of taking Sonny to obedience too, and training him up along side Beau.

    Today I spoke to the trainers at the dog club and they were very enthusiastic & supportive of my wish to train Sonny & Beau together. So the first Sunday in Nobember, Sonny will start Beginner's Obedience. Beau will go through again with him and I'll have to hold Beau back

  2. 26th August 2007 - Beau's Graduation from Beginners

    Beau graduated from Beginners Obedience today. I was so proud of that little man. Our classes were supposed to be run for 8 weeks but due to heavy rain (the venue is held outdoors) all but 4 classes were cancelled. We rolled up today expecting that we would fail our exam and have to repeat the classes. Our challenge has always been the “stay” command and as part of the assessment we needed to complete a 40 second sit & stay, a 40 second drop & stay, and a 40 second sit & stay ...

  3. 22nd July 2007 - Obedience Class Progress

    Rain, rain go away! Well not really. Australia needs rain as drought is our curse. Having said that, these past 8 weeks or so has seen so much rain with an average of about 1 in 3 of our obedience classes being cancelled due to rain. So I was starting to feel rather irritated when it started bucketing down on the way to obedience today. This is an hours round trip for me, so a cancelled class at the last minute is inconvenient & annoying. As luck would have it, today we drove right through that ...

  4. 1st July 2007 - Beginner Obedience

    Beau started Beginner Obedience training today. For the past few months I have been taking him to baby puppy classes which is primarily focussed on socialising along with some basic obedience like sit, drop, heel and some fun baby agility, so we moved up to the serious classes today. This phase lasts 8 weeks (provided you pass) and then they can move onto Class 1, which quiet honestly at this stage I have no idea what they learn.

    Our little class only consisted of 4 but the teacher

  5. 6th May 2007 - Puppy School Day

    We had puppy school again today. This was Beau's third day. He is now ready to move up to the Beginners Class but that starts on the first Sunday of each month, so is still a few weeks away before we start. I don't mind though. Beau just loves the classes and they are fun. Today when I pulled the car up and Beau realised where we were, he went nuts trying to get out of the car. He was so eager to go play with all the other dogs.

    Everything really clicked into place today. Beau's sits
