A friend called a couple of weeks ago, and told me that she had just acquired a new dog. Then she said I should be glad that I had retired from teaching dog obedience classes because she wasn't going to go to any and she wasn't going to train her dog because it was so BORING.
We did hang up as friends, but I told her to watch for the K-9 Corner in a couple of weeks and she would see herself in it along with suggestions for making training more fun and less boring. Even practicing each day can be fun for both you and your dog.
First, scout around for a dog obedience class that has a few minutes of agility thrown in at the end of the class. Yes, you can go visit the classes in session in order to make up your mind. Don't look for a school with the same curriculum as the old Palmer Dog Training School, every instructor has a unique program, so what you should look for are the exercises covered and the techniques used.
