View Full Version : Obedience Graduate

Hello all. I just have to brag about my little man, Teddy. He just fininshed an 8 week obedience class and graduated TOP DOG out of 8 in the class :cheer2: :banana: :appl: . I'm so very proud of him. He was tested on the commands and was completely flawless....perfect! The test consisted of performing 3 sits, 3 downs, 2 leave it/take its, 3 watch me's for at least 10 seconds (and our instructor had a stopwatch and timed them!), a sit/stay for 10 seconds, a down/stay for 10 seconds, then 2 ultimate tests - a sit/stay or down/stay with the owner walking away, and a trick of either shake, spin or roll-over. Well, Teddy did the watch me's for 15 seconds, the sit/stay's for 30 seconds, the down/stay's for 26 seconds, and then for the down/stay with me walking away... he stayed put for a whole 40 seconds before I called him over to me:appl: :banana: . Then I was really scared because we had to do the "trick" and he is very stubborn about doing them. We decided to do a roll-over and he did it - FIRST TIME!!!!:woohoo: I was amazed! He was absolutely perfect the entire time! I am so very proud of him. I will post pics of him in his graduation cap when I get the film developed. My digital camera got broken so I'm back to the ancient 35 mm film type camera. He received his "dipoloma" for completing the class and is now signed up for the intermediate class starting in January. I can't wait!
Just had to share!
