Though I am proud when I take my dog out to do what dogs do that I can recall her when she is chasing the galahs for example. Or prevent her from going up to a dog on leash with one quiet word. Or stop her dead in her tracks with a Stay. I don't do it to show off, I do it to keep the dog safe and prevent her from being a nuisance to others so I can afford to give her the freedom to do dog stuff when we're out, if you know what I mean. But I am still very proud of my training successes nevertheless!
