    After the past few months with such stress after Laddie's and Jasmine's illness and eventual decline, I had to move my head towards trying to find some happiness and positive feelings. So, I enrolled Baron in an Advanced Beginners and CDC certificate class. Today was our first class.

    I am thrilled to report the trainer and the class is wonderful! Only three are in the class and we have a huge indoor training area. This is great for Baron as he does not feel trapped or intimidated. I was shocked at how well he did in the totally new environment! I was so proud of him! He did not shut down at all and seem to figure out... Oh, I know how to do this! He seemed to feel that he had a job to do that he already knew. That seemed to give him confidence. Heeling, Sit Stays, Down Stays and Sitting once I came to a stop when Heeling, and About Turns!

    He got TONS of praise and hugs for doing such a great job! The trainer seemed confident that all three dogs would pass the CDC examination! I am so proud of him overcoming his shyness! She even exclaimed at the end of the class that is a great group of talented dogs!

    Made us feel really good!

    Gloria, so very happy you can focus on Baron and experience some positive emotions and progress with him. I know all the losses have taken their toll but I admire your spirit. Baron sounds like such a great dog, and I like hearing about how his training is going.

    So glad you found a positive experience! I look forward to hearing about Baron's progress, and so happy you have something so positive to focus on amid the sorrow. Baron will help you with lots of joy.

    BTW what is CDC? Is it like CGC?
