Default Our hard Work Has Finally Paid Off.

Good Job Evie!
All our hard work has finally paid off.
I now have a "fairly" well-mannered poodle.
We are finally making progress forward in obedience. She can now sleep out of a crate if she ever were to need to without me having to worry about her chewing up the house.
She is finally starting to listen even when there is someone new right in front of her and she so wants to go say hi.
She has become fairly reliable when it comes to stays.
Today she just broke her record for her longest ever sit and down stay without breaking even when I come back to heel position.
She made it two minutes in her sit-stay before she started to look like she was contemplating breaking her stay. And in her down stay, she made it to four minutes without breaking it.

Now we are working on training for the CGC.

Evie has said in very certain terms. That her mom is crazy when it comes to her obsession for teaching her to stay still for more than thirty seconds.

Sounds like an excellent progress report. Keep up the training. It's so worth it, isn't it?

Looks like you will be ready for that CGC exam soon. You’re doing wonderfully. Nothing like a well behaved poodle...the perfect pet.

Thank you.
All that hard work was worth it. Even when it felt like we were making no progress.
Well behaved poodles do make the most perfect pet. No hair everywhere, and a dog that will listen.
In regards to the CGC. We still have to work on her heeling other than that we would probably be able to pass it.

Awesome! Keep up the good fun. It is such a great payoff. I had Javelin with me in Costco and the supermarket today. He was awesome even when we were in the check out at Costco with a mom and her two young sons right behind us he held his sit despite the littler boy looking longingly in his direction.


For practicing for the CGC I spent a lot of time with Javelin in Pet Smart to be sure he could do all of the activities with lots of distractions. You may find it helpful to do something similar.

Thank you, Cathrine, for the advice about PetSmart.
Is Javelin a service dog?
