It really is fun. I came to really appreciate how the trainer(s) would see small things I was doing wrong and point them out to me. Just simple things like the way I held my hand or subconsciously leaned or any number of things. It's as much about training the human as the dog, lol. I think you'll really like it. Please do update!

I DEFINITELY need to work on myself. I tend to focus so much on the dog that I lose track as to what I'm doing and I throw the dog off. At the last "fun" rally I went to the judge helped me a lot by explaining my body language when training. I will definitely keep you all posted.

Thank you all for your responses!

I actually got bored with obedience lol. That's why I branched out and started teaching tricks and nose work/tracking. I would live to do gun dog training, but I don't have that kind of place... The city frowns upon shooting off shotguns lol

I kind of have as well, (bored with Ob), but I have enjoyed the trip. My thoughts were to develop a pretty solid Ob foundation so I'd have more control of the dog in other sports, particularly where they'll be offleash. I'm interested in Rally, Agility and Nosework right now. New classes start later in January, so I need to just make up my mind which new endeavor.

Kat and Guinness, I should've said that before too.. what I said above about building that foundation. I do think it starts with Ob. I didn't get bored with Ob 'til we'd done four levels and got the CGC. Then I thought, hmmm, what to do now. I think I have a touch of ADD, lol.

I hate obedience. I've tried, I really have. I don't have the attention span and neither do my dogs.

I keep trying to convince myself I want to do rally.

As for the OP, I'd do both classes if possible. The CGC is really easy. Mia got hers the first time with only basic work then a short CGC class.

I am not sure if its the same thing everyone is talking about, but my girl received her Good Citizenship certificate when she was about 2 years old. At one of the dog activitities in my area one of the evaluaters came over to me and said how well behaved my dog was and would I consider testing her. I said OK and she passed everything with flying colors except me being out of her site. She didn't like that, so they showed me how to work on that with her and 6 weeks later she got her certificate. They wanted her to train to be a service dog but then she had her accident and that took all of our focus.

I think every dog should be required to receive a Good Citizenship certificate. It isn't very hard and it really just the basics.

Well I am going to hopefully within the next couple of weeks get Guinness and I signed up for the obedience pretty much so I can actually work on myself. I think that's the best decision because Guinness is a great listener and willing to please but I think I tend to confuse her sometimes when we train. I definitely enjoy the idea of her becoming a cgc and think its a great idea for dogs and their owners so hopefully these classes will get Guinness and I working on the same page so we can work towards her getting her certificate in therapy. Thank you all so much!
