Going public with our 2010 Goal!

I know it's a couple weeks before the beginning of the new year, but since I've made my decision about our new year's goal, I thought I might as well update the blog title and go public with our 2010 goal. (Also, thought it was about time to change the header photo to reflect the current season : )

Our goal for 2010 is to earn the elusive AKC UDX title! I know it is going to be quite a challenge for us, so now I've really got to get to work to develop a training plan that will help get us to that goal.

With that in mind, today Jackson and I are beginning one of our winter training projects that can be done twice daily here at home. I'm going back to basics with some attention training. I've just reread Building A Bridge from Training to Testing by Smith and Bosbyshell, and plan to work through their 10 stages of attention training. I'm going to see if we can strengthen our bond through more focused attention. Will let you know how that's going : )

Wow! That's a lofty goal but I'm sure with your dedication and plenty of hard work, you and Jackson will meet your goal.
Looking forward to hearing about the process.

Hi Jackson,

I don't know what all those titles are that you have and will be going for but you sure are an impressive Great Dane. You go Jackson! My mom will be following along to see what she can learn from you.
