K9 Training School Open House

For the last few months we've been taking Zac to rally obedience classes at the nearby dog training school - Good as Gold K9 Training School. I need to get some pictures and video together to show what he's learned - it's so much fun and he's so smart.

This past weekend they held a Christmas open house for all of the students. We took Scarlett along with us as she needs more experience being around crowds and noise.

The training room was cleared of equipment and decorated like a winter wonderland. A buffet was set up along one side. And there were dogs everywhere. Everywhere. It was the best thing ever.

I wish I could gotten more pictures but the lighting was low and the dogs were in constant motion. Here are a few that I managed to capture.


The stars of the day. Everyone wanted to take their picture. And they were more than happy to oblige.
Their owner said she's used to it - especially when they're dressed up.

This is Byron (white dog). He's in our obedience class and is a star. He's so good at everything!

This weimaraner puppy was just the cutest thing, but I couldn't get a photo of his face that was in focus - he was constantly on the move.

This is Hushpuppy - owned by our trainer. She's deaf, but her eyes and nose still work perfectly. She was interested in everyone's lunch.

This area was set up for photos. I wish we could have gotten a picture of Scarlett here but there wasn't a chance she would have sat still long enough. She hates getting her picture taken. This guy was great though - he stayed like this until his owners had the perfect shot.

Our little mouse Scarlett - not so sure of all the commotion. But she did great when other dogs came over to say hello.

This guy is a bernedoodle - a Bernese mountain dog/poodle cross. What a big pile of fluff. And he had the most human-like eyes I've ever seen.

It was a really fun time. We met a lot of nice people and a lot of nice dogs. We're so glad that we've become part of this community.
