Chihuahua advanced training graduation

We couldn't find a mortar board big enough so Farfl stood on top of it instead.....

Right before Christmas Farfl and her fellow chihuahuas graduated from their advanced training course at PetSmart.

Click on the title above or the "more" link to see all the great pictures of her displaying her advanced skills!

Charlie, Mac and Farfl wait patiently for instructions.

Before they could earn their certificates the three chihuahuas had to be put through their paces. The first exercise was a sit stay. The dogs were all put on long leashes in the front of the store (where there are lots of distractions) and we walked fifteen or twenty feet away before calling them.

Farfl waits in a sit stay to be called.

All three dogs did really well, despite attracting a lot of attention from customers in the store! It's not often you see three chihuahuas on display.

Farfl performs a down in the middle of a come command perfectly.

One of the most useful commands taught us in the class was putting the dogs into a "down" even when they are at a distance from you. Farfl was particularly good at this - she tends to be better at the obedience work as opposed to the tricks - above you can see her in action.

Charlie and Farfl - chihuahua love

I want to say a big thank you to Julian at Eglinton PetSmart - he was a really amazing trainer and I look forward to working with him again in 2010.
