I don't see anything in any of the posts relating to reducing frustration. I have tried conformation(two years, I am in therapy to reduce anxiety) and now I am in herding. Most likely, I would't do either of these or anything else except that I am in a co-own situation and one of the agreements is that I need to do some performance activity. I am legally committed to something. I have worked with my dog everyday for two years on something. either conformation, what a failure! We do caveletti, also a joke, and now I am trying herding. I don't see anything coming back there either. I love my dog. He is very well behaved and a joy but I don't know how to shape myself to be successful in any of these activities. By the way, I have spent quite a lot on professional classes.
