This is how it went

About 2 weeks ago I made a post of Lola and I attending a dog therapy class. We also went last week. The first week we went they were on the fifth week of a six week course. This course was held for one hour each week on the same day and same time.

Tonight was the test for certification of a therapy dog and handler in addition to taking the CGC test which was a separate evaluation. We passed both the therapy and CGC test's. I'm really glad that we passed the CGC test because I never brought Lola to any formal training classes and just trained her myself and it tells me that I must have dine it right. Now that she has the CGC I don't think there is a need for obedience classes. At least not the beginner classes. I don't know what they would do in advanced classes and how much more advanced that would be other than what I have trained her on already.

Now all we have to do is wait for all the proper stuff in the mail and then we can start in the therapy work. :D

Congrats! That's really great.

As far as further classes, perhaps you could have a consulting session with the person who leads the classes. Be clear about what your objectives are. Show the person the training you've done so far, etc. The trainer should be able to steer you in the right direction...which might be no classes needed; just keep doing what you're doing and consult with a trainer when you're stumped.
