He amazes me every Sunday!

Duke is just getting better and better each week! I never imagined this dog doing so well! I knew he had it in him, and I saw potential but wow! This week we had HUGE improvements! Our sit in motion is getting better, and we have focus!! He watched my every move during Obedience! Fuss was beautiful! And we have FINALLY added his tug to his rewards! This makes training so much quicker for him to pick up and a little easier on myself! Though, tugging around an 80lbs dog isn't easy. I am so proud of my boy! I love this dog... he's truly a blessing!

Anyway, here's the pictures!



















My trainer said he's doing better then he ever imagined he would. He told me that he's very impressed with him and sees more drive in him then he has in any showline he's worked with! I'm soooo proud of him! We are hoping for our BH title in the Fall, and then try for some schutzhund titles down the road. He's only 2, so we have a long time to work on things.. no rush! I'm just so happy he's doing so well and enjoys it as much as I do!

Lol.. I know I know... took me forever! It's been a horribly long week at work. Glad I finally got them up though!

I am happy with how he's doing. He's so happy doing it too.... he LOVES training day!

That sounds really great! But I'm betting that the relationship you have with Duke also plays a big part in how well he is coming along. Keep up the good work!

Good boy Duke!

I think more and more trainers are realizing now that now that not all showlines are created equal.

Some of them definitely are not! My trainer has worked with quite a few showlines and they do pretty well. Duke shocked him though.... for a dog just entering the sport at 2 years old (and with his history), he has the drive and energy of some of the working lines out there. We are all really excited to see where he gets to!

Still with Ed Reyes. I don't want to go to a club, not into the politics. And they never answered me back. I tried to get a hold of that club for over a year.... never heard a word, emailed a few of the board members it says to contact multiple times within the year... never a single answer. Which, I feel blessed for that.... because I love where I am at. Duke does fantastic there, and everyone is like family there, and the training is excellent! I absolutely love going there each week! I can't wait to do it more then just 1 day a week!

That most definitely could be a reason for so much improvement! We've had him now for almost 4 months... I think our bond is getting MUCH stronger and with that, he's wanting to work with me even more. I also think he's starting to understand that he can finally let that drive go and be who he is. I am sure in his last home it was taken out of him from day one so he could sit on a golf cart all day. Oh well, it's coming out now, and I couldn't be happier with him! He's one of the best dogs I've ever had.... great at home, great out in public, and so much fun to work with!
