DD is 7 and decided she wanted to come training with Beagle and I, so I suggested she train CKCS as Beagle is too strong for her.
Well she has been coming with me every week for the past 4 months and comes for walks every day and we practice training together. Last night we were geared up to take Bronze test, I was also told I could do Silver with Beagle. So we have been practising like mad and felt a bit nervous last night, I went first with Beagle and passed Bronze and silver. Then DD went and she cam back from tester - beaming - she passed Bronze and silver aswell.
I have to admit I was stunned - I thought they would get Bronze but was dubious about Silver because Cavie really isn't the brightest button in the box, as much as I utterly adore him, he is a bit slow - especially in comparision to Beagle!
wow well done, I passed silver a few months ago and was so proud of myself and dog, for a seven year old to do it is amazing, now you need to get her doing agility she sounds like an excellent handler.
Thanks all She has done really well, but when you also consider that CKCS is devoted to me and for the first two months spent every training session watching me and barking at me, you'll understand why it has been such a challenge for DD!
We are going for gold next, then the club has cups for other things, we both love it so will just carry on.
Beagle would be amazing at agility, but I am so not fit and would feel really embarrassed wobbling round an agility course! And DD would not do it alone.
