My first and only dog, is Maddy, an American Eskimo cross. His two companions at home are my budgies, Taylor and Charlie.
I have been a member of NYOC for just about a year. I recently volunteered to become the editor for the club newsletter, The Barker. Maddy and I started in the Beginner Puppy Class on Thursday evenings and progressed from there. The NYOC instructors are terrific. They are so patient, knowledgeable and helpful. I just went in my first Rally-O competition. Nerve wracking but fun! Maddy did really well! Someday soon, I would love us to be involved in a Therapy Dog program and Agility for fun. Maddy and I also enjoy walking, running, tug toys, and most importantly, meeting other dogs and their people.
