Thanks, Mary. I keep the rule books on my iPad so I can consult them at any time!!!

I like his LITTLE jumps and pop finishes... Not so big on all the jumping ON me he did in this class... it cost us 3 points!

I am glad to see you did the beginner novice you both were ready for it, its a step between rally and novice. The judge has the discretion on the wait exercise, Kodi was close to the wall and he could see you the whole time. Many of the judges make them sit in the middle of the ring so you walk behind them, the small dogs can not turn their head naturally to see you, often they move. It is great fun and a good way for people to see how their dog will do in the obedience. I always love seeing you and Kodi.

We have done lots of practice in lots of different places in the ring. The first two BN legs were closer to the middle. The funny thing with Kodi is that for the longest time, I could go to the left and he'd hold the stay, but if I went to the right, he'd get up and turn, right when I went behind him. I think it was from all the "walk arounds" in Rally, that are always to the left. In the beginning, I had to stay really close going to the right, and click/treat hin JUST for turning his head without moving!

Now you need to do the CGC it is very close to this except the 5 mins, it helps if you walk your dog off to the person and walk away quickly. If they do it where you train it is also easier because he is use to the setting.

I've thought about it but it feels like going backward somehow. We have so many venues we train for that this one is low on the priority list. They do offer it at our training facility, but it always seems to be on the same weekend as another trial elsewhere!

We followed the progression from CGC to BN and now we are working on Novice. AKC gives a tile for CGC now. The are grandfathering in those of us who got it before they decided to make it a title. Lily is also TDI certified. They are adding that too but we need 50 hours before they will give that title.
I love the attention your dog has. It shouldn't take long for you to get your Novice title.
Congratulations!

Thanks! Yes, if we had done things in the "normal order" it would have made more sense. But there are two "tracks" at our training center... One for people who are mostly "pet oriented", and those often are encouraged to train for the CGC. And those who are more sport oriented, and those tend to go into classes leading toward the specific sport in question. Of course there are people who specifically want to do therapy dog work, and they know they need their CGC. But since the CGC testing and the TDI testing are always held on the same day, most people do both together.

Maybe someday Kodi and I will do therapy dog work, but right now, it just doesn't fit into the schedule. That and Nose Work sound like great "retirement activities" for him! And the fact that CGC is now considered a title isn't much of a draw for me... he's already got an awfully long string of indecipherable letters after his name!

As far as Novice is concerned, he's definitely making good progress, but we need to get more distance on the stays before he's anywhere NEAR ready for ring-time. There's nothing else in Novice that should be a problem. Actually, once we get the stays down, I think we'll do pretty well. He's already working on increasing distance on drop on recall and signals, has started learning the go-out, and has FINALLY started to make good progress on the retrieve. (for a long time, I could get him to pick up, let alone HOLD the dumbell!!!) He's just a "busy" dog... which makes it much easier for him to DO something than "NOT" do something. (like staying still for those long sits and downs!)
