On Tuesday morning :D Quite excited, first training classes we've been to!

Its the other side of town, so 2 buses, but the club is a 15min walk from the dog park so we can go their as a reward after training ;) Ideally we'd go before, but classes start at 10am and the first bus that comes through the village is at 9am!

The trainer sounded lovely on the phone, and wants me and Kira to pop up there so we can see a class and so she can assess Kiz and see what level she's working at. The classes arent a set 8 week course but sorta 'come when you can and pay per lesson' which works well for us with my changable income!

Obviously when we go i'll be looking at the techniques used, i dont want her rolled or jabbed in the necks or anything. And I'll be making sure that Kiras comfortable with the trainer, and that they accept the limitations of the breed (which so far sounds positive, she seemed to understand when i mentioned that she doesnt go offlead).

Is there anything else i should be looking out for or asking?

We're aiming to do the bronze CGDS, and given the relaxed attendance thing we'll probably stay on and do more as we wont have to sign up to 8 weeks or anything :)

As they don't do a set course you might want to ask how they arrange teasting dates
She said she has an examiner come in a few times a year, we just missed the last one so would have to wait a few months but I dont mind, we could do multiple levels if we're ready in time :)

You can do two tests maximum on examination day.
Sounds perfect :) if we're ready we'll do both, if not im not too fussed :) she can do everything except recall away from offlead dogs, to her offlead dogs = playtime, since she only gets to meet them at the dog park, usually people keep their dogs away assuming shes agressive because shes on a lead :(

That sounds great Sid. Could I ask where it is? Just, as you know, I live practically right next to the dog park and would love to have a dog training class so close!
IP3, just off landseer road :)
