The Applewoods students did more than just compete at the Laurel Dog Show this past weekend. We also took a moment or two to practice some of our Novice obedience skills. We had a total of eight dogs in the demo - Rugby, Caesar, Diego, Sandy, Ellie, Coco, Ben and Sugar.
We started off with a group Sit/Stay. Then we did a recall exercise, before we lost some of our demo dogs so they could compete in the show. We finished up by taking turns weaving in and out of the different sized dogs. We got some of the highlights of the demo on camera, the video is below.
Good job, Team Applewoods!

Applewoods was well represented at Laurel's Third Annual Dog Show this morning. We had a table set up with information on our next Canine Good Citizen test on October 15th and our upcoming group classes. We also had a drawing for a copy of Margot's book, Mud Heaven. Rugby was the unofficial table mascot, and wagged his tail at all our visitors, with the occasional kiss.
Several of our students entered the competition and brought home some ribbons! Retha and Shadow, the toy poodle, entered in Best Puppy and took the the blue ribbon. He is one cute puppy!

Two puppies that are both such dare devils that they leap off stumps on their first day at Applewoods?! These two are going to keep us busy!
We had a lot of fun playing with Burly, the Rottweiler, and Mozart, the Giant Schnauzer, after this morning's private lessons and group classes were over.
