When I got Conan, he was a scared four month old. He spent class time hiding behind me most weeks, nervousness of the other puppies and people. Last night was graduation: we let Conan off-leash and he approached people and dogs, allowing himself to be petted and loved on. No to mention, of course, the obedience he's learned in class.
YEA, you go Conan, I am very happy for you and him, that he is doing so very well. Just goes to show what love and understand will do for a pup.The picts of him in his graduation cap were wonderful, he looked so daper, getting to be a big boy. Thinks Erin.
That's awesome. Keep working and you will continue to see him gain confidence. He looks very handsome and proud of himself.

Congratulations to you both!! It's wonderful to hear a poodle success story like Conan's. Good for you for working with kindness and determination to help him become a confident boy. Sounds like he was a stellar student, he sure has shining star of an owner. Cheers for the two of you!!

Thank you for the encouragement! My goal is to have him as a therapy partner so that we can begin work at the local children's hospital and nursing homes by his first birthday in June. His shyness has certainly been a tad bit of a setback, but I hope to have him CGC certified in a couple of weeks. From there, it's just a question of his confidence...
