Having just retired and with some time, I would love to enjoy my 7-month-0ld Cooper, our 3rd (and probably last) golden in some novel ways. My other 2 goldens were amazing friends and great family “pets.” I have NO experience or knowledge of obedience beyond beginning levels, no knowlege at all of agility, etc. Cooper, while AKC registered, etc. may have no particular breeding for any of these. Are there “competitions” or trials/levels of things we could actually have a chance of dealing (having success) with? Which is the least “stuffy” (or with the least haughty folks) and the most fun? So far I have done the typical - puppy class and now starting a next-level “manners 1” class at another facility. What troubles me is that the terminology and sequence/progression are so different. If I knew where I was heading, I sense i could be more efficient. Anyone have anything I could read or some advice, or is this silly and bound to lead to frustration?
