These things you have said, are the most key to me. I will be working with accomplished trainers, who I feel will be able to work with me and my dog. I'm excited to learn! But, I think having that drive, that desire to work and please is so important in order to accomplish anything in competition world.He's always been keen to learn and work, but he's also a very thoughtful dog who likes to understand things before doing them. My previous dog was a bulldozer who took to agility like a duck to water; And he's the most amazing partner, always gives 100%. It's very impressive to see him at work.
