Thanks for the tip, dogma. We dont have classes to go to around here (another downside to living in the middle of nowhere), I started wrong but I am glad ehen I backed up to fix it I was kind of on base with what your class does.

I saw two golden retrievers lying next each each other they were staring right at each other with the owners across a room. I think I will pass on this lol. Max layed down to a female shepherd who was glancing and trying to smell him he just turned his head. I was there and so was the owner of the dog who was a trainer. Can't imagine another male and me at a distance- not sure if I would volunteer to be in that spot not right now anyway- lol! I am greatful there are other things we can do though! I will be excited to here your successes dogma!

There's so many fun things to do that that don't involve being close to other dogs!Samson's nemesis is people.He's not much for retrieving either.So if we can't muster up any enthusiasm for the dumbbell we'll move on to other things.Whatever we both can enjoy

Jenny720 I am pretty sure "Preferred Novice" is equivalent to regular novice (Companion Dog title), but does not include group stays.

My dog really doesnt have dog problems but I am not wild about the group stays partly because I don't have a good opportunity to train for it and partly because if something ever did go wrong it just seems scary...

But I think you can trial for a PCD without any group stays

There have been a few people Max is leery he is good though with people for the most part but two he just does not like. My nerves Max would respond most to. Yes I like to try rally and still tracking. Herding and nose works is keeping us busy and obedience which we practicing haven't taken a class in awhile. Yes there is many activities which it makes possible to find ones niche!

Went to our first trial today.Samson wouldn't let the judge touch him,which was a shame because he sailed through everything else with no trouble.An excellent performance.Except that one thing.Sigh.

Well...one thing I have learned by talking to other competitors is that the best of the best NQ sometimes so don't be too discouraged.

I always feel that it is a learning/training experience when you go into the ring. Last time at an AKC show for Rally, I completely missed a sign with my young girl, after doing it with her mother just fine. Automatic DQ - handler error. Then in OB ring with mom, was worried about the stand for exam, as she loves people and wants to spin around when you touch her, to greet and give you kisses. Well, after a lot of work on the Stand for Exam, she blew the recall, by stopping 6 feet in front of me and sitting. Pleased with herself. :-D Of course, her flip finish was not here either as it's a jump and spin, but from that far away, she was still off to the side and in front of me. Thank goodness the next two days went better, but with a heat and breeding, we are still waiting on that final leg of her CD title... I know what we will be working on in the spring, without counting on everything else to fall into place :-)
