Got our IPO3 today!

Wow, what a journey. This forum has been invaluable to me and I'd love to share my story.

My entire life I wanted a dog. A german shepherd specifically, ever since I was a kid the best days I've had were those days when we went to my aunt's house and I got to play with her GSD. But, my parents never wanted a dog, so I was not able to get one until after I had moved out. Even then, it took a while to find the right apartment, and dog.

Finally we got him. My buddy Einstein I decided then and there that I was going to do *something* with him. OB, Agility, etc. But did not even know what Schutzhund is until this woman stopped me on the street and started asking about my pup's lines (he is a patterned sable, so obviously drew her attention). It was thanks to her that I found out about schutzhund and started getting involved.

That was April 2010! Wow, I can't believe how time flies. Fast forward to today, and we have just gotten our IPO3 at our club trial this weekend.

What a rollercoaster ride it has been. It really is a humbling sport. Especially when you are new. It's constant up and down and I love that about IPO! I love that I can enjoy the great moments while they last but can also learn from the bad moments and make adjustments. I love that it's constant stimulation for both me and my dog. My creativity is the only limiting factor in our training. And I love that my dog sometimes reminds me - hey, you still have a lot to learn buddy!

Ok, I'll stop rambling here. without further ado I present to you Einstein IPO3 CGC HOT
