Birdy Update: Obedience Classes

birdy

The world’s best dog had an evaluation last night from the trainers at the Winston-Salem Dog Training Club. She successfully walked on a loose leash, sat, laid down, stayed, and came to me…of course these are all very simple things for her. They said Birdy would probably pass the Canine Good Citizen class now, but that I wouldn’t because I don’t use the “proper” dog handling techniques. (Um…I don’t even have her on a leash 80% of the time because she is so obedient. I don’t need no stinking techniques.) So, due to my ineptness, Birdy has to start in the Beginner II class. I think it’s going to be fun! Eventually I want to get her involved in agility or flyball. She can already weave through flag poles and untangle her leash on her own. And she is very fast. If we do flyball, though, I’m going to have to teach her to stop destroying tennis balls. She thinks part of the game, after chasing them and fetching them, is to rip them into pieces.
