Claudia, I really think you need to slow down a read the posts before you respond. In your second post regarding me your paraphrase was incorrect. Now, you assume, "no previous dog ownership experience and no classes".
Jinx is my first Golden. She is not my first dog, had you taken the time to look, first dog honors go to Rocky, the 14 year old Min Pin who thinks he is a golden. And I sware, I didn't have the determination to train him for obiedience.
I also tried to make it clear that Jinx has attended both Conformation and Obeidence classes. And she will continue in the classes we need to reach our goals.
As for the collar, why this seems to be an issue is a mystery. Yes, in conformation I show in a very fine nylon choke. The CGC did not allow choke collars as part of their rules. A very nice person let me borrow a buckle collar since I did not have one on me.
I am not belittling others who find challenges in training. I have had my share and I am sure I will have more when we get to competing for titles. I already see that working with dumbells will be a chalenge since she wants to carry by the end.
