Cool Our rescue GSD earned his IGP 1!

Our rescue boy, Wey Wey, earned his IGP 1 today! He is now MR 1 and IGP 1.

Some of you may remember his story. He was an owner-surrender at our local animal shelter. A GSD rescue took him in and when he was about 15 months old, we became his foster family. He was dog-aggressive, toy-aggressive, and out-of-control when we first met him. But with time, patience, and training, he has become the best GSD we could ask for.

He earned both legs of his Mondioring 1 in 2017. We did not do much training in 2018 because our Malinois (my Mondioring dog) developed severe epilepsy in January and we spent most of the year trying to get her seizures under control. In October of 2018, we went to check out a local IPO club. At the time, they had a trial coming up in 3 weeks and the members there encouraged hubby to trial Wey Wey for BH. That’s how their journey in IGP began.

Now on to IGP 2

Highlights from the trial...

That was SUPER!!! Is that Lou's club?

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.

That was a great video to watch! Ya just can't get any better proof of what can happen when committed to it. Love his flashy front to fuss. It's just so happy.
