    Default Proud moments with your dogs

    I had a bit of a proud moment today.

    I was walking my 5 month old GSD pup in the wetlands near my place. He is starting to feel very comfortable with the area as we walk there almost every morning so he is starting to strut around there like he owns the place.

    So we walked past a flock of about 15 birds and he decided to chase them away for some fun. I felt he was getting a bit far so I called him back. He heard me, looked back at me, looked at the birds and came running full speed back to me. He got lots of treats and cuddles for being such a good boy! I am really trying to instill a great recall in him so I was very pleased I was able to call him back mid-chase!

    Would anyone else like to share their proud moments?

    Awww well done Prince!

    My proudest moment was winning Best in Show at a toy dog specialty with my Chinese Crested boy, he showed his little bald bum off that day. The best part was the judge we had was from Norway and she was a TOUGH judge, she was sending dogs out the ring left right and center because she deemed them "unworthy" of an award. Some other showies on here might know who I am talking about she toured Aus judging around last October.

    My proud moments are usually about the same thing, Princely. I have actually been taking Banjo to the oval at the end of our street at sunset to do that exact training with the big flocks of galahs that gather there that time of day. But I call her mid-chase and then let her go off to chase again so we can repeat this a few times.

    But my proudest moments with Banjo and my old dog Luna would have been the times I managed to call them back when a roo was really close to use. That definitely doesn't always work, but when it does, it feels great!

    That must have been so thrilling! Congratulations!

    I get stopped by people all the time telling me how good looking they think Prince is. I think he's getting a big head. (Or maybe that's me, haha)

    That's fantastic! Can't imagine Prince would cope too well if he saw a roo, lol. Your training must be so good for getting their recall more consistent and I bet the dogs have a blast too!

    I had a couple of similar moment than what you describe with the birds but with a roo that took off just metres ahead of us. He was looking at the roo, at me, at the roo (longingly) and then came running back. I was SO proud of him. He doesn't do it always though... it's such a very big ask to let a roo go like that.

    This may sound a bit stupid and testostoroney......

    but as kids living in a rural area we all compared our dogs and talked about who was the toughest, fastest, smartest etc, etc.

    The people on top of the hill didnt have kids but had a bloody huge Great Dane that had given a few dogs a touch up for going near his property. We had to walk past thier house to our bushwalking track and on the day my Labrador 'Storm' followed us the Dane was out.

    Well it was on for young and old and we all watched (with me cringing) expecting Storm to be running home with his tail between his legs but i'm sure he thought the Dane was going to have a go at us bunch of kids so he stood his ground and gave it as good as he got it. They both gave up after a hell of a battle .....kinda like they called a draw.
    Now i dont like dog's fighting but i have to admit i was super proud of my big guy and he definently earned a few 'warrior points' from the rest of my friends that day for taking on a dog twice his size. .

    One of mine would have to be at our dog forum day out. I let Bella off leash at the beach as she didn't bolt, just hung around me and always came back. I always thought she was ignorant like that but she actually listened!

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.
