I couldn't be more proud of these two. This is Miranda's first "show dog" and she owner-handled him all the way to his championship. Such an amazing accomplishment! Now they can focus on more fun activities like agility, obedience, barn hunt, dock diving, etc.
April 26, 2015: At the Yelp! block party, Mowgli did a couple of obedience demos and met a lot of new people and dogs despite it being rather hot. My favorite part is when we finished doing a rally demo, a 9ish year old girl asked if she could "train him". I warned her that he probably wouldn't do very much. She got a couple of treats and lead him around the course while luring him with the treats and he followed her around. It was so cute. His favorite part was doing the jump several times. What a good boy!

At first they were hesistant to approach him until one little girl decided to pet him... Then another... And another. Before we knew it there were kids surrounding us. He had a lot of fun getting attention and the kids gave him ice chips as treats. He also had fun handing out goodie bags and I'm really looking forward to having him visit different facilities."
