  3. Name Suggestions For Male Yellow Lab

  4. Ud And Small Dog

    I have just started with Waldo. He is a mini schnauzer. It is not the articles I find difficult but that the box looks so far away. As far as teaching to pick up the metal articles I just rewarded Waldo for any interaction with the article. Put cheese on top, underneath partly inside, etc so he touched it to get it. Go for it! UD does my head in but I love it, great fun stuff to train.
  5. What size area? Where? I help manage a community dog club Friends of Manningham Dogs & Cats and we have a building we hire out. www.fomdac.org.au The money goes back into community education programs and the like

    How is he at holding metal? Pippa struggles to pick it up and when she finally does, her little teeth chatter while she holds it! We are very proud of you and Waldo getting your CDX and heading for UD! I can only hope we'll get there, too! I'm plugging away at UD with a certain blonde Labrador, so if she hasn't driven me absolutely bonkers by the time it is Pippa's turn, I may continue... Waldo doesn't mind the metal at all. He seems to have more trouble identifying the wood. If he can't find it he sits in the middle of the articles and returns via a jump, a perfect combination of scent discrimination and directed jumping! For Pippa it's just the actual picking up of the metal she just can't get her little mouth around. She identifies them ok, but can't wrap her little chops around the metal unless it is slightly raised off the ground. We really need the raised dumbbell types that the US uses! These two really need to meet up!

    Naww you're too kind They are going to take over the woooooorld!!!! :D How's Waldo going? Certainly is He is doing well! We are both trying to get our heads around UD. We are making progress and hope to enter towards the end of the year. Entered CDX at Easter to keep us both sharp! Not that he needs help to be sharp as he has some creative ideas in UD at times. Glad he didn't get involved in the rules review.
