Okay well here is my guy, Irving III
What an amazing two weeks I had at team training. The friends I made, the experiences I had and the instructors were all wonderful how will I ever thank CCI for the life changing gift they have given me. The first two days of class I rotated four dogs. They were all wonderful!
Feb 2nd was pre match day, this is where we get matched with a dog and if everything goes well we will go home with it. I admit that when I was placed with Irving I was a bit shocked I thought I would have been placed with another dog, but I was truly over joyed and the trainers sure know how to make the right match.
The moment we met, for good I found out Saturday that Irving was my final match pure joy and love.
From per match day forward Irving and I worked together and bonded. We did lots of command practice of over 40 comes. Some of with are:
Give & Get
|Tug - we worked hard but we got it.|
|Went on many field trips - to practice in public (first time in the truck)|
