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

Congratulations! The upper level obedience classes usually get you ready for competition obedience....distraction work, high level attention work, problem solving, etc. Alot of folks choose other venues like Agility, Flyball, Rally, Tracking as something/fun to do with their dog(s).
