Just wanted to update you on Gaucho's progress and thank you all for your help and contribution. Gaucho is now a certified Champion! He finished with a 5 point major in Palm Springs (Best of Winners over 84 Dobermans). He has also earned his Canine Good Citizen Title.
Please let Fran know how much the people at the shows (judges included) have enjoyed Gaucho's tricks. Gaucho has been known to "Sit Up Pretty" and give a "High Five" to the judge after a win. (Of course I was told by all the Doberman people that it was impossible for Dobermans to sit up on their haunches – we proved them wrong!)
Thank you again for all your patience and support in helping me learn how to deal with this EXUBERANT dog.
