Graduation Day

Yippee for Denver (and me!)

Tonight Denver triumphed with his puppy training at the wonderful Central All Breeds, by completing a rigourous examination held by an external examiner!!

After many weeks of training we made it, I have had such a lovely time at this training school, Julia Maiden has been a wonderful teacher, the other dogs are just gorgeous and I feel so connected to the group – it’s been a wonderful support for us all.

Despite the odds set out against Denver at the very start he has proved himself time and again that being an SPCA dog, a dog of ‘bad breed’, and a dog that we have lost friends over has done us proud. Maybe we are not so opinionated now?

Well done Denver, well done us, we knew we were right about you…

    Well Done Denny!!!! I knew you would be able to train Marrisa eventually! (Could we borrow the halti on Tues arvo!!)Although I know she has been a difficult owner to contend with I don’t think people should be questioning her breeding as I have met her parents and they seem lovely. Good luck training Michael Denny, I think that could be a real mission! But seriously….Congrats you guys you have all worked soooo hard.
    Luv Jo

    Congratulations Marrisa and Denver! I know you’ve worked so very hard and you are an inspiration to all dog owners. Regardless of breed, all dogs need good training and committed owners and Denver’s really lucky to have you Smile

    Loved Jo’s comment – hilarious!

    I am in awe! I can’t imagine taking Fortnum and Mason to a class let alone them winning a certificate on merit for obedience. Well done to you both. Don’t stop there mind, dogs have a habit of forgetting what they’ve learned. This happens about 100 times a day in this house.
