Cooper is starting training

Ok now that Cooper's Neuter went so well and he's feeling fine we are keeping our appointment for his training to start on Sunday. We are going with a local trainer named Jim who came up and spent an hour with Cooper last weekend and now has a plan for training him based on his personality and disposition. We are just looking for basic obedience stuff. Jim will train him {and us mostly} for 7 weeks for $360. The lessons are about 1-1.5 hrs. We thought that was very reasonable. We'll let you know how lesson #1 goes.......

It's once a week for about an hour and a half per lesson. Obviously we will have lots of "homework" between lessons. Also it's at our house so he's travelling to our house for that $360, not too bad.........

I've seen a 16 week old puppy get it's CGC, so it's never too early.

Coop's first training session was yesterday and I must say it was darn cool. Cooper did great and I learned alot. Now we have two weeks to work on the two or three things that we learned and then Jim{the trainer}will be back. Our little guy is quite smart!!
