Hi! I am so excited to join this community! I have a 1.5 year old Brittany named Hannah Belle. She is my pride and joy, it never fails to amaze me what she can do. I live in a small rural area, so there is not much help when it comes to dog training, and I am just a novice and make it up as I go, so I'm so excited to find a site like this where I can talk to other owners and get advice! It really helps that she is so smart and eager to learn, we usually can have a new trick down pat in 10 minutes! So far I have taught Belle's pretty basic stuff: sit, stay, lay down, roll over, shake, high five, wave, crawl, take a bow, weave(between my legs), play dead, turn (to the right), spin (to the left), stand(balance on back legs), walk(walk standing on back legs), back up, and I am always looking for new ideas!
