I am finally enjoying training Kort again !
I never entirely did "not" enjoy it, but I like to see results, & if I don't, I get frustrated. I am trying to work on that :)
For awhile it was such an effort for me to even go & train. I had no motivation for anything.... scenthurdle, agility, or obedience. I kept plugging away though, sometimes having to drag myself to class, & it is finally paying off. Kort is going to be a star someday, I can see it. He has the determination & the brain to be one. I am finally figuring out how to train him properly. I am finding out what makes him tick & what he needs.
I can't thank Amanda enough for all of her encouragement in obedience, scenthurdle, & agility. Sarah has also been such an inspiration for me in agility. Both Amanda & Sarah have natural talent, incredible knowledge, & passion, they just "get it" when it comes to knowing what is right for your dog. I am so lucky to have them, plus they also put up with my moods & back talk :) I always have to have the last word, a fault of mine, but I'm getting better, or at least I'm trying.
Even though I may disagree with them at times, I always listen & absorb what they tell me, then I think about it later, sometimes they are right, but sometimes I am :)
Now I understand what Liz meant when she asked me what my hurry was? Kort is so different now then he was just a year ago. Sometimes the dog just needs to grow up.
Anyway, I wanted to thank these gals, your help & patience with Kort & I means more then you will ever know :)
Thank you !!!!
