Another Day - Another Demo!

Jackson was invited to participate in a demo last night for a church youth group. We really enjoy doing these demonstrations. It's great fun and really good experience for Jackson to go into new environments and perform exercises with different distractions. The request came through our obedience training club, so we talked about our dogs, how we train them, and demonstrated a few obedience exercises.

Here are a few pictures of our team - Melody the Border Terrier, Sparky the Standard Poodle, and Jackson.

How cool! Not only did you do the obedience demo, but also demonstrated friendly, socialized dogs which is impressive to them as well.

Oh, Jackson - I loved this post! What a great ambassador for Great Danes - and all doggies - you are!

I think demos are wonderful coz not only are they much more enjoyable, relaxed and fun but they also help to educate people about the importance & joys of dog training and inspiring others to spend more time with their dogs - all the positives with none of the negatives! :-)
