Well tonight was graduation night at training and we had a obedience competition. I used hand signal but thought I had mess up more than I actually did cause we scored 196 out of 200 and came in 2nd place. They gave out ribbons and even a trophy for 1st place. I was so totally excited!!!! I got him a mobility harness to start getting use to wearing and walking along beside me so that is our next challenge.

Went to vets office and picked up some more heart worm med and while we were there I weighed Thad and he weighed 47lbs. We went through everything we have learned thus far at RROTC and Thad nailed them all. He even held a stand stay for 3 mins and front/finish was beautiful.

I got my hair cut today cause it was pay day and I hate what she did. It is total not what I asked for and when I asked her to fix a few areas she messed upon she seemed to misunderstand and was making it worse. I will just wait till Patrica gets back. Went to a training class tonight and the foot I lead off with from to the my shoes I was wearing were all wrong, goodness I am all discombobulated as my friend Linda would say. We will work hard for the test next wk. I did get a call from this lady I met in Kroger and she invited Thad and I to a dog show, to meet and greet, on the 16. I also ordered his mobility harness and some patches for it today.

This is our last class tonight and next wk the graduation test with no treats. I hope Thad is ready, he did not do good tonight with stand stays and that was usually one of his best moves. Lets just hope he will behave next wk. I will practice with him every day several times a day until then and tomorrow we will go to RROTC to practice with other dogs.

Went to RROTC and worked with a trainer on Thad's skills we need for class next wk. We have one more class left before graduation Aug 7 and he has improved so much since our class last week. The cool thing is now that we have membership in RROTC we can now go and train for free on Wednesday nights beside the working we do at home. He now dose a down stay for 3mins, sit stay for 3mins, and stand stay for 2mins and this is with people walking around and touching him with me at a distance. He is right on with his heels the only thing he really needs work on is fronts being straight and a little closer.

Found a way to tether Thad to my waste when we are not practicing and he is not playing in the back yard. We went to Walgreens today to try front/finish and recalls in public. He did stop in front of me but not straight and did finish. He loves people so it is a little hard to get him to concentrate on me when practicing. It has improved some but could be better. We then went to PetSmart and WalMart to pick somethings up and returned home.We did practice figure 8's at home and the 3 stay positions he is good with heels.

It has been a while since I have written anything on Thads training because my computer was acting up. Monday July 15 we joined Red River Obedience Center, we practiced our stand stays, sit stays, down stays all for three mins. Tuesday we went to training class at Red River and just went over what we've already know. I did, however, learn finish for the first time and the women who taught me made it easy to understand. Today Thad and I went out in public for awhile and practiced at home the new finish, come when called which needs work, and stopping and sitting.

Went to training class and we worker on the usual but faster and also stand stays, going around our dogs at sit stays. I can do all that and walk over Thad already we just need to work on stand stays and downs on command.

We have been working on down stays and stand stays today.

Went to see a movie by ourselves and I got overwhelmed, Thad only laid down the first hour and would not go back down the second I think that was because of how I was feeling.

We worked on down stays and stand stays and other things like the weave 8s and heels all day today.

Today Thad went down without a problem on command and did a whole min on stand stays with me walking around him.
