We went through basic obedience and he got a CGC. Then we went on to beginning novice which prepares for competing in obedience, some off leash commands, long down/stays, going over low jumps, precise heeling, stuff like that. Stosh just did not enjoy it but he did it. He gave me that "I'll do it but I don't know why you're making me" look. So we started herding lessons and he loves it!! It's a blast. I would never have tried it if we hadn't been exposed to it at the training club. Sounds like your boy would be open to just about anything.
