... but we got there in the end.

A CCD (Community Companion Dog) title on Faxon that is.

Yup we finally cracked that third and final pass so Faxon is now entitled to have CCD after his name - ie. Tianze Power of Truth CCD.

For those of you who have no idea what I am prattling on about CCD is an obedience title. :)

We will be carrying on to attempt to get a CD - Companion Dog) title - hopefully this won't take another two years!
After a year and a bit of trialling we finally got that second pass towards our CCD title.

I can't begin to tell you what a relief this pass is!

From what I was told afterwards our heeling was pretty damn good even if the boy missed a couple of drops. Our stand for exam was perfect. Our recall was pretty good for us. Hr came when I called but didn't sit until I reminded him what to do. Sit stay was perfect and the down stay was amusing. There is nothing quite like seeing your dog stretched out on his side in the down stay! :)

Any way we have another certificate and ribbon to our names and only need one more for our title.

....another obedience trial.

Today was the first day of the ACT State Obedience Titles. Somehow I don't think we will be walking away with a State Title this weekend.

Heeling great, Stand for exam great, recall - nope, sit stay - nope, Down stay - what can I say about our down stay?

We did dead dog at the start - for non dog people this is when the dog is laying flat on their side rather than doing the phoenix thing - then we had a good scratch and then STOOD up and did a perfect stand stay.

The boy keeps me on my toes and the crowd amused.

Strangely enough after all this I am feeling quite satisfied with the improvements we have made in our heeling. :)
