I brought my dog for training 10 years ago now a ( foxbarton) Border Collie named Campbell, Jenny was our instructor and we passed our KCGC Award achieving our GOLD within 14 months.
We take an active role in Obedience, KC Rally, & Agility training. Also have competed competitively in KC Rally passing our level 4 just recently we had to retire from Agility due to signs of slight Arthritis in Campbells right leg, so now we just take part in low impact sports, I aim always to have a happy sociable well balanced Obedient dog & continue every day training.
I am currently a training assistant within the club i have passed my Canine Psychology parts 1,2,3, with Ann Bond training, recently attended & passed KC Rally 2019 ‘S’ regulation changes, as well as a KC Rally course & Judge course.
I constantly remind myself of the 3R’S, repeat, reward, reinforce.
