Jasper and I took our first handling class yesterday. We were having a lot of fun until Jas got sidetracked by a tooth fiasco. Poor baby! We're not sure what happened exactly but suspect that a piece of treat got stuck under a loose tooth. We tried and tried to find the source of discomfort to no avail. It took a while but eventually the problem resolved itself and we were back in business.

The handling instructor was a wonderful teacher. She's very experienced in the show ring and is an AKC match judge. Jasper looked great and was a natural with gait, baiting, stacking. I, on the other hand, looked like... a goober :withstupid:. Now I remember why I used to forge notes to get out of gym class LOL. We have lots to practice before the next class.

Thanks to all who encouraged us to give this a try!

I'm going to start a separate post asking about show leads and other supplies.

Good Luck and keep up the good work. Be very careful when training while teething. It could ruin the dog. George recommended against training during teething.
