Taking a weak-nerved dog, who our trainer told us he was concerned about possibly developing fear aggression, and getting his CGC and TDI certification and being able to trust him with strangers, other dogs, and my baby niece.

Getting Carly's championship. Her finishing with 3 majors. She's a lovely, fun dog, and I feel she deserves to be a champion.

As for Sage? Well, I'm proud she managed to pass one herding instinct test without trying to eat a sheep. (not so lucky on the second test!). Her prey drive is ridiculous. (ask the cat...)

Getting Beau's NAPWDA Certification for Cadaver and Obedience at 15 months. He did so well on the boat problem they gave him special comments on his test worksheet and I am proud that he pulled himself through a difficult rubble problem as he had never been on a significant rubble pile before the test.

Actually, I don't think it makes sense to compare accomplishments, they are different dogs and the handlers have different levels of experience, time, etc. When you figure many weak-nerved dogs become biters, or are dumped in shelters or rescues, or are managed so that they never see people and are muzzled to go to the vet, or are euthanized, your accomplishment is HUGE.


Once upon a time a little boy walked along the beach pitching star fish back into the ocean. A man asked him why he did that. He said so that they will not die. The man told him that it was crazy, there are so many, he couldn't make a difference. The boy waved the star fish at him and said, "it makes a difference to this one."

LoveEcho, its a breeze with a dog who is born with everything 'just so'. I had a dog (Toby) with weak nerves and what YOU have done is a MAJOR accomplishment!!!!
