I went to Petsmart to get a couple of those dog maxi-pad holder diaper things, and talked to the trainer that they have there, the one who recommended the Schutzhund trainer to me, about him. He told me that that guy's pretty flakey. THANKS FOR THE HEADS-UP 8 MONTHS LATER. So apparently it's very likely that he just completely flaked out, goodbye, hey thanks for that mortgage payment-sized check, see ya... Luckily the Petsmart trainer has a conscience and is willing to train my dog. He's looking to start a club up around Webster I guess, which is much closer than Hockley where the only other one is. Looks like I may be able to get at least a BH on her (or hell, a brevet would be good enough to start) before I graduate.
