It's so fun when they start to get it. Gabby is my first dog, we are at SH level now. I remember her first whistle sit and our first blind. It was fun I understand your enthusiasm.

Appreciate the responses, it sure is gratifying and exciting to see them start to put it together and succeed. Can get to be a grind sometimes in the early stages with all the obedience, yard work, introducing force etc. Sure made it all worth it and then some to see her succeed and be so excited about it. I am officially hooked!!! Excited for what's to come!
Kwick are we neighbors??? Fairly certain that's pretty close to reaction I had, minus the drum sticks lol
Congrats, I remember the first time I got a dog to do that. Christmas morning before leaving for grandma's about 10 years ago, one of my fav. xmas presents ever! What an exciting thing, way to go
You have every reason to be proud... maybe years from now you will think back and say .. “geesh” that was “no big deal” .. but is IS A BIG DEAL. An accomplishment proving communication and patience through training and team work. You may someday think the task was a baby step along the way ... but I sincerely hope you will never forget the FEELING. Enjoy your dog! Steak for dinner???
