Love this topic!!
I've been participating in AKC obedience trials since I was 16 (yes, that's a long time ago!). I've titled dogs but find my true joy comes not so much from the placements (they are exciting, though!) as much as from the fun we have in the process. Training together in classes, practicing in various locations inside & out, watching the progress, solving problems, learning new methods to approach training with, and just plain enjoying the time with my dogs. I love it so much I joined an AKC training club so I could meet and spend time with other people who love the sport as much as I do. Made many, many good friends and learned a TON from them. I also began assisting in classes with this group, and am now a head trainer teaching CGC and Beginner classes, as well as assisting our Advanced instructor with his classes. My favorite part of the classes is watching the progression with new student/dogs from week #1 chaos to week#8 where all dogs are heeling on a loose leash, doing a nice recall, and holding a 2 minute sit stay. You don't need to be a competitor to appreciate a well-behaved companion!

There are two kinds of dogs: Dogs who are German Shepherds, and dogs who WISH they were German Shepherds....
