This sweet, funny faced girl is Carmen.  She is a 2 year old Boxer that is here to learn how to be a lady with other dogs as well as my Intermediate Obedience Package.  She has been here a few days and is settling in great.  She was a little unsure of her new friends at first but with a little time & encouragement she is starting to come around.  I'll have more pictures and more of a progress report as her visit unfolds!
She's not quite sure of Sienna's smooches


 This beautiful girl is 4 month old, Viszla, Sienna.  She has been here for my Advanced Obedience program.  She is about 2 weeks into her training.  She has learned how to heel nicely at my left side with no pulling.  When we stop, where most dogs would learn to sit, she is learning to stand for her future in the show ring.  She isn't actually learning the sit command at all.  She knows her down-stay command, although it is the one she struggles the most with.  She still needs much reinforcement in that command even with minimal distractions.  She is doing excellent at her place command.  She is maintaining her place command with little to no correction and for extended periods of time.  She has started her transition to the off leash work in some areas but I would like to see her a little more solid on all the basics before I progress more in that area with her.  She has made tons of friends & is quite the social butterfly.  She sort of holds the card as the annoying little sister..... everyone else is pooped and ready to rest & she's still bugging them to play :o)  The rest of her time here will be spent progressing with her off leash work, refining all her commands & adding more distractions!!! Stay tuned for more on Sienna!

Long time no see everyone!  After a long hiatus of blogging I've had many requests to please start blogging about the dogs I work with & the things going on with Georgia K9 Academy!  So here we are again.  I am happy to announce I am now in a new, bigger location offering not just boarding to my training clients but in home boarding (still) to anyone!  So if your family or friends have furry friends that need a loving place to stay while their family is away, please pass along my information :o)  I am also happy to announce that Georgia K9 Academy has started a Therapy Dog group.  This is for people that would like to join in a little community service by taking their furry pal to visit people in nursing homes, children's hospitals, school events, etc.  Please email me if you'd like more information on joining the Georgia K9 Academy Therapy Dogs!  Don't forget to "like" us on Facebook & stay tuned for the stories of my training dogs & regular boarders!!
