Ooops sorry!

Well, I have been remiss this week about not posting. Typically I don't go this long in between updates (or pupdates, as they typically are) but things have been busy. On Sunday I taught my fourth Rally O class - I can't believe we're 2/3 of the way through the session now! My students seem to be enjoying the classes, and I'm having a blast teaching them. The owner of the school and I are talking about some more classes in January, so that's a good thing.

Monday was Jack-Jack's graduation from Junior High Obedience. From an obedience perspective, he did fabulously well. His heeling has come along nicely, and he is a very responsive dog with a nice work ethic. From a fear viewpoint, he has made some gains, but they're not as noticeable as I'd like. Some days are better than others, but I suppose that looking at it on the bright side, at least there are some bright spots. We're signed up for Household Obedience, which starts next week, so we'll keep working at it. He's so good with people and situations that I hope we can overcome this fear of other dogs.

Tuesday was Grace's agility class. She's always worked well for me when we've done obedience (she's mostly been home-schooled), but man, she ADORES the agility. As soon as we park at the training centre her tail starts going on little circles, a mile a minute. She practically does the equipment without me, she loves it so much. So we're having fun. We're definitely both beginners (although I did take my Old Man Quigley through some classes) but we're enjoying it.

Next week the class schedule changes a bit, so I'll be teaching on Sundays (for 2 more) and in class on Tuesdays and Thursdays. That spreads it out through the week a bit, which is easier for me. I promise to write more regularly then too!

So cute that Grace has been "home schooled" LOL. I love that.

Hugs to all your beasts :)
