    Default Grace starts obedience training



    Grace will be starting obedience class Tuesday. She can already sit, and heel on leash. We are a little nervous about meeting new dog friends but can't wait to teach her new things. Wish us luck!

    Hey Karen, how old is Grace? Can you post up some progress notes once she has started. I have never taken any of mine to obedience before. I've always just done my own thing, but I am going to take Beau when he has completed all his shots. I just don't know what to expect, whether I will be bored, think I know it all, or realise I have made a lifeime of mistakes and that I am a clutz. So keep us posted eh?

    Default Grace

    Hi, Grace is 14 months old. She's a little firecracker! We felt like she needed some serious training. Our 4 other Cavaliers have just been trained at home except Willow and he says I'm just not gonna do it and goes to sleep.
    I have experience training a Belgian Tervuren. I do show him in obedience and we think Grace will be able to compete also. She is just a little shy around new dogs. Plus she gets a little car sick and we have to drive 30 miles to the training center.
    I will keep you posted with photos and news of how she does. It's a lot of fun to see the light bulb go off in their heads when they finally understand what they are doing.
    We train with praise and reward. Grace just can't wait to get those treats and we try to make sure they are healthy treats.

    Default Training

    Grace's first class was last night. She did wonderful. My daughter, Rebecca is handling her and they were heeling, sitting and sit staying before the class was over.
    Others in the class are a Blue Heeler, Bichon, Jack Russell, Westie/Maltese, and a Weimaraner. Grace was placed between the 2 larger dogs and it didn't bother her a bit. It must be because she is so used to our Tervuren.
    All in all it was a very good night. Fun class!
    I will post pictures later but I don't have a digital so we'll have to do it the old fashion way.

    Default Training

    No training was held last night due to severe thurderstorms, hail, tornadoes in area. Our instructor felt we should all stay safely at home.
    All is well, so on to next week!

    Red face Training

    We are into week 5 of training. Grace is heeling on leash, sitting and downing on command. She is starting to learn recall. She is doing great!
