Bluverado Royal Discovery, affectionately known as Hudson (or The Vagabond to his best friends), being a very smart working dog, asked to be enrolled in Darwin Obedience Dog Club training school, and who could say no to this handsome Aussie Bloke.
So off we went to Dog School in June, practised when we could, and had a fantastic time it must be said. After four weeks of training, the scary graduation night came around - it was like a dancing contest where the judge taps you on the shoulder and you leave the dance floor! Suddenly Hudson found himself in the final two, and it just happened to be duking it out with his best mate, the mysterious Welsh Springer Spaniel Pagan.
We turned left, we turned right, we did right about turns, we left about turns, we did automatic sits and we heeled (Hudson, being a Cattle Dog rather fancies himself as a ‘heeler’) ....… and after what seemed like forever, Chief Instructor and International Trial Judge, Gloria Page, had made her decision! And you little beauty! Hudson graduated from the DODC Class One as Dog of the Month! Of course, Hudson is very proud of his achievement, and, as you can see, he hasn’t stopped singing about it since!
Thank you to our amazing Class instructor, the very patient and knowledgeable Saint Alan, and our fellow dedicated class members of June 2022. We can’t wait to see how the next classes pan out.
