I'm so proud of Empire!

He'll be a year old tomorrow and has been a joy from the day that I brought him home at 8 weeks.

Today our trainer gave him a certificate for completion of his class and his performance today even left me a little speechless. It was the best I've seen him track. And his obedience was flawless (I got corrected). I found myself almost whispering the commands and was wondering whose dogs was calmly executing them with such focus. It was weird and left me a bit speechless.

The trainer was also impressed with his bite work. It was just a wonderful day.

Thank you. We did not go back to the Dogwood Park class. Instead I found a guy (someone on here recommended) who does one on one Schutzhund training and works all of his clients (one after another) on the weekends.

That's great! Are you going to continue to do different classes with Empire?

We are continuing with the same trainer. He's invited us to join the club (where he works the members on Saturdays and Sundays). I've also scheduled another 6 weeks of one-on-one with him because I feel like I need a lot more fine tuning.

Is it bold city?

I can't do any scheduled classes right now so I'm thinking of looking into private lessons in home or board and train... Although the general consensus on b&t wasn't favorable for a puppy.

I think he is affiliated with Bold City but his business is Marienhof Kennels. His name is Michael Higgins and I really like his training.
