    Hi Ridstars

    I do love an update - tah for that.

    My puppy pre-school experience was much the same as yours, and I'd do it again too. It does help if you get a good vet/school so my suggestion to lurkers is try it out, and if you don't like how they do it at that place, try a different place.

    Tonight was our first night at Obedience.
    Murphy was good but a little all over the place. But this boy is only a boy so he is allwed to be like that.
    My wife cam with us and she did quite a lot of the lesson as I know Murphy will do it with me, and he was quite well behaved with her tonight.
    It was the very basic things tonight Sit and Heel plus a recall. That is when I was called back into it.
    I was asked to do it the right way as there were new people with their dogs there. So We done it first. The wife hell him and I walked away. I turned and then called out loudly, Murphy and as I did I opened my arms out to the side . Then squatted a little due to him not being too tall.
    Murphy came running as quick as his little legs would carry him. It was great to see him belting along in a straight line to me.
    Then I held him and the wife called him but not as loud as I did, but Murphy knew he had to go. It was a good demostration for the others.
    It will be better as we progress and I think what we did tonight I was happy with.

    Yer it was a little like that.
    Murphy is sitting, dropping and shaking on comand.
    And I noticed not another dog was even sitting.
    It is nice to know he is in advance of them but I have not got him to show off with.
    I have got him this way cause I want him this way.
    And so this make us being in the spot light then it will be a badge I will wear with honour.

    Good for you.....I start a new beginner's Class tomorrow evening. I always find the first evening a little stressful. It would be nice to have a few good handlers in class

    I find that to be so true.
    People come to these classes as they want to make their dogs more managable and I think this is so good.
    But I do sit there and wish that a few more could have taken a little more time at home doing some training.
    We had only 4 in our class, and well over half the lesson was taken up by these young women with their Malamute. It just didn't want to have any collar or halty. And the instructor was doing her best to get this right.
    I totally understand and think she done the right thing, But we were all just standing there doing nothing.
    So I started to make Murphy do a few sits and drops, to break the bordom.
