Sonic is just a wonder and just getting started with Conformation training. He will compete in his first show in June and his first AKC in Canby at the end of JUNE.

At this point he is learning to be groomed, stay beautiful, have a nice gate, and stack. He is very willing and hopefully I'm not messing up a show career, but I've also started him on bumpers, and Rally training. But, I am undecided as to whether to continue with this before he starts to show....

Well, started on Sonic this week.

He is now also entered in the AKC Canby show. I am thoroughly excited and nervous. He is entered in confirmation on Saturday and, just to add some stress, I also put him into Rally Novice. Just curious. He has not had nearly as much time as pebbles has had put into him for that, but he is extremely attentive. I'm thinking as long as he is focused on me, we will both survive it. However, I am much more concerned with him in the show classes. Had him on the stacking blocks several times this weekend and working on his free stand/learning stay/creating distance...

His main problem is his obnoxious wiggling when he is being touched/having his feet placed in the correct spot. So that is the focus for this week.

He heads to his first dog show this coming weekend. So we'll see how that goes and hopefully get some wiggles out :)
