Tip Marty Segretto gave to me - shorten your dumbbell throw. It should land the same distance on the other side as from where you are standing.
Thank you!! Yes it is, it is Lou's club

LOL, I will let hubby know, dumbbell-throwing itself is really an art, where I want it to land and where it lands are often two different locations

Thank you!! He is a really awesome dog, first year with him was bumpy, but once he bonded with us and we developed our communication system, he was great! He loves to train, yet he knows to turn off at home.

Thank you!! The front to fuss is still work in progress. He spent 3 years as a Mondioring dog where he whistle-recalled to fuss, hubby has worked really hard to try to convince him that "front" will get him more rewards than finish position, LOL.

Thank you!! We are very fortunate, we adopted him mainly because we felt he was too energetic/rambunctious for most pet families. We were not planning on doing bitework with him but he had it in him. We've learned a lot along the way. He is really a very easy-going and happy dog, it's amazing what consistency and patience can do.

Thank you Lee! He is a very happy dog and we try to keep him that way. He loves training, the amazing thing is, he knows to turn off in the house.
