    very awesome:yes:
    I don't understand why an instructor would insist on something like that. Most people (that I've seen) hold the leash in their left hand. holding it in the right hand kind of defeats the original purpose of your dog being on your left side- how are you going to shake hands with someone if you are holding the leash in your right hand?

    great job on the dumbbell- still working on getting the right one for Cran.....

    Last night was the kicker...we were about to do a heeling pattern and I put the leash in my left hand and she STARED at me pointing at the leash! OMG...really????
    Also, Calliesmom my obedience trainer makes bells and ships to the US (and she's not overly pricy)...I can give you the link to her website if your interested.

    I do seem to remember that you said that about your trainer before....
    since Finnie is larger- what size do you have for him?

    Finnie's is a 2 1/4" long bar with 2" ends (I do think the ends are too small...told my trainer to make us a bigger bell). In contrast Piper's bell is 2 in long bar and 2 1/4" ends.
