Thank you all so much!! We've been working for this for about a year, and I was excited when my club announced that they would be holding the testing. He got his CGC with no real issues in August of 2011, but we just had some things to work on before the added testing stuff (mainly making sure he is completely stable around all other dogs, proofing stays a bit more, and getting him used to more and more people checking him over/distractions with kids, as he LOVES kids LOL).

Yes! I'm a member of PDTC. Are you??? I'm thinking of entering, but I'm not sure yet LOL. I guess I have to figure that out soon! I'm going to start up Rally classes with Kimma next week, and see if they think she's ready for her RA. That, or if she's OK in the new class environment (she's never actually been to this building and we've never had a real obedience class - I trained the RN stuff myself), I might try for her BN if it's offered. Will you be entering/going?

Hahaha they are small! Much smaller than a lot of people think. Kimma, for example, only weighs 20lbs, Bubbles is 23lbs, and Pen is only 25lbs (though he is small for a male). I love their size, personally. Easy to travel with

No. I'm already out 3 nights a week as it is for volleyball, Nosework and Rally Run Thrus. If I remember correctly, the meetings are about an hour away from me- a little too far for my liking.

Yeah- as you know, there is limited spaces.

BN is offered. So is GN and GO. I'm tossing around entering both RA and BN (Caleb already has one BN leg).

I was all set to send in my entry last month, but ever since Sandy hit, our lives have been in an upheaval, and I keep forgetting. I'd better bite the bullet and do it soon, tho!

Yeah, it takes me about 40 minutes to get to the firehouse for obedience, and 30 to get to the barn for agility. They are one of the closest clubs I've found, and I had gone to another that was even closer and was not impressed.

I will figure it out for sure when I see how she does in the new environment at class Tuesday before I enter her for January. I would rather do BN than RA, but I will see what the trainer says (she knows me already, as she had Pentti in one of her classes, and I know she will give me good feedback).

I'm 30 minutes from Top Dog. Where we're staying until our house gets fixed is a few minutes closer.

Would you be A or B? Wouldn't it be funny if we ended up in the same class(es)? The judge doung BNB is nice. She judged our first RA trial- where Stink Pot took off and buzzed the entire ring after the jump.

Just wanted to update this! We just got the certification stuff in the mail, so of course, I had to get some pics

Pen with his new collar and tag, bandana, and ID card:


A better pic of the tag:


Smug dog:


Now I just have to start contacting places and get working! I'm so excited - he's going to love it <3
