Murphy is a major work in progress. It took about 8 months for him to get over his fear of the box. As you know, we tried him on meds, but took him off. On Friday, he was able to do full runs, only running off once! He was ale to function with another dog in the lane behind him, which is HUGE for him.
I know this is kind of a minor brag, but I'm so proud of my little hound puppy. I never thought we could get even to this point. Erin is an awesome instructor and has had a lot of patience with him, even when I haven't. :mrgreen:
Hopefully, he's on his way!

YAY MURPHY! and there is no such thing as a minor brag when working with a dog. Heck I brag when Magic simply doesn't bark at another dog.

Way to go!

It was truly awesome...I *almost* had tears in my eyes watching him run. :D I know I will when he first completes a run at a tourney (I always get teary when my "kids" grow up and compete)

Jenn has come a LOOONG way with Mr. Murph!

ETA...his box turn was beautiful too!

Congrats! Those are a bit more than minor brags ;)
