A to Z: N is for Never Say Never

*Sorry I got behind in the posting of letters N-Q. Over the last few days life kind of got in the way of blogging*
I never thought in the beginning of our training that Dobby would go as far as he has. During our first obedience class he wouldn't down on command and was afraid of one of the trainers. Then in our first rounds of agility training, he went crazy on the equipment and wouldn't listen.
Notice the princess sitting on his towel during a down stay
Now I look at how far we've come and all I can do is smile. He now performs a down stay on that same floor every week! Our agility performance is slowing improving with every trial we attend. I think it goes to show that any dog with proper training can compete in a dog sport. It doesn't matter if the dog is a purebred or an All-American, if you take the time to work with the dog even for just a few minutes a day they can blossom.

  1. So cute! It must be tough work though - training a dog. I have a cat who prefers to have his own way in just about everything :)
