Hi There

I've just had a look through this thread again and I must admit it brought back memories of just how bonkers my baby was :lol: :lol:.
During the first 2 years, he really suited his nick name (Wild Thing) and although he's now 4 1/2, he can still look demented when the notion takes him (usually in public :shock: )
however
Although he was always the hardest dog to control at training classes, he was also the dog who demonstrated each element best. We continued attending various training classes off and on for about 3 years and other owners were simultaneously horrified and impressed by my Wild Thing.
All the training must have paid off though
because last year while we were on holiday in Cornwall, we ended up on a campsite with around 40 bearded collies. The owners invited us along to a show they were going to one day and my baby entered and passed his kennel club good citizen bronze award without any preparation 8)
So all you doodle puppy trainers out there take heart.
Yes our doods have an exuberance for life that makes them a bit giddy, but they are also very intelligent and one day all your training will work its magic

Jan and Wild Thing :lol:

Oh very we'll done to Herbie, and you for perservering with the training. I must say reading through this thread was the most I've laughed for ages, my daughters did not know what was going on, whether I was laughing or crying (actually both! Crying with laughter) sorry it was at your expense but it was the way you told it, I could totally imagine the scene!! Just sorry that now Herbie is all grown up we will get no more accounts of the fun and games at doggy school, though I'm sure Herbie is still as full of character!

Hi! I see you're in Glasgow! Lottie and I are too and we have very similar issues with training class! We got 'promoted' to the 'adult' class two weeks ago after 5 months on the puppy course which was supposed to take 8 weeks! Lottie cannot help but play with other dogs at training and seems to forget all the words like 'sit' that she knows without a problem at home! We go to classes in Knightswood and I wondered where you went as our classes don't offer the chance to do agility - although that could be a nightmare with Lottie!
