    I've decided I'd like to go back to my old dog training club because I want to compete in obediance again with Blu (the puppy). But the problem is the puppy classes start on the 6th of August so there too early. The next lot start half way through October. There's another club but there a bit far away but I suppose I could go if I had no choice. So really the only thing I could do is take him to ringcraft until October then start the puppy classes, teach him obediance myself in the house and take him out lots to be socialised. Or go to the other class aswell as ringcraft. What would be best? I'm thinking the first one but I just want other peoples opinions. And another thing my breeder told me where the nearest ringcraft is for me and mum's friend told me about it aswell. I was looking on SKC and it says it's run by the doberman club :confused: I don't want to sound an idiot by phoning up and asking them if they take poodles but if 2 people have told me about it do you think they take other breeds?

    If you've done obedience before and you like your old club and the trainers I would start to teach the basics at home and then start on the course in october. Taking him to ringcraft will socialise him so he'll not miss out on that. I would personally either phone the ringcraft club or call round if you know what night and time they train. We do have a club round here that takes only large breeds they don't allow table dogs at all although I have heard a woman takes her whippets I know the woman who runs it she says I can take my greyhounds and setter but not my whippets. Our club meets at the same hall but on a different night and although it is run by people with toy breeds all breeds no matter how big or small they are are all made equally welcome.
