Default Think It Is Possible?

Okay I would LOVE to show Lizzie in 4H....but...there are a few things that she would have to be okay with/learn before this could happen!

So here is a list of the things I would have to teach her in order to do it......

1. Free stacking...that would be NO big deal for her to learn

2. Focusing on ME and NOT other DOGS! That would be probably the hardest for her .

3. Learn to be touched all over with out moving/getting upset...I think this woud be not that hard either with daily training!

4. Being able to run on leash without wanting to take the leash in her mouth and run.

5. Learning to be on a "show" lead!

6. And just over all being nice to other dogs and not caring they are around!


Think it is possible....I would be doing TONS of training with her!

You'll never know until you try, will you?

LOL, I know...I hate trying!

I think *well know* all of these would be easy for Lizzie...EXCEPT the being around other dogs, being nice on leash and and focusing on ME and not other dog part

Just that one PART!!!

Then there's a good reason to do it! Think of how good the two of you will feel when you get that accomplished

You know you want to . . .

Thanks Grammy...I think it is a great place for me to start too!

To be able to get a feel for it....found out what it is like to be the one IN the ring and not just watching


I am going to email the AL 4H club in a few mins because I found NO where on there site that talked about Dog Shows

yah in my 4-H were starting obedience,showmansahip, and agility

i have a few problems in both

Agility:Rascal is really lazy
showmanship: once again he is lazy and he needs to stand up to be able to be checked over by the judge person.You need a chocker collar and the last time we put one on him he freaked out.
obedience:he wont sit or do many of his tricks without a treat
