    I think Lisa and Tara will come along and do something special with us -- maybe do one fun command we could all learn, or maybe we will have a little agility sampler for people who might like to do this with their dogs. Or both!

    Thanks for offers of help; I will let you all know!

    Definitely. I just need to confirm a date with the Dog Training Ireland folks. I'll have a date confirmed this weekend.

    It sounds like you will all have a lovely day.

    I just wanted to tell those of you that are doing the training that I have worked obedience and agility dogs for a few years now, mine, friends and the clubs, mainly Collies and Shelties but my favourite is working with Cavaliers!

    There is NOTHING like looking down and seeing that beautiful little face looking up at you! it melts my heart! I have stopped in a middle of a class once or twice before just to bend down and kiss that lovely face. AHhhh!

    My favourite classes were those with my Cavaliers, sadly now Honey can't attend with her illness but last Christmas we took home the "Best Achiever" cup from our club, can you imagine how proud I felt that in six months she had attained so much. From a Puppy Farm Rescue to a little Super Star!

    Today she still likes to do her sit/downs with stay and wait which all include a long sleep in between! and retrieving her dumb bell.

    Just remember that once you open the inquisitive mind you have to keep on going!

    Thanks for sharing this Alison...and congratulations to precious Honey Buns on her Best Achiever award - what a little star and a memory you will treasure forever.

    I too used to love working both obedience and agility with my Cavaliers, it really helped Fillipa's confidence and both Rupert and Filllipa loved it!! They both did Good Citizen Bronze tests and Rupert went on to do the Sliver AFTER he went deaf

    TedBear was going to classes to do his Bronze Good Citizen - it really helped him to fell comfortable around bigger dogs, and he is much happier with other dogs since. Sadly the test isn't for another few months, but I don't think he will be well enough to take it he can't cope with the wooden floor now.

    The trainer very kindly offered to let Jack take the test instead, IF I can get him up to the required standard...Alison do you fancy having a guest for a few weeks to train? as if I could bear to be away from him!!


    PS hope you all have a fabulous day on the 18th...shame I can't get there but will be thinking of you and look forward to the photos!!
