Ben and Peanut

Ben and Peanut

Being a young handler maybe seen as a difficult, perhaps harder than an adult handler, however I believe your age has nothing to do with how you train your dog. My dog Peanut, a miniature wire haired dachshund, is now in the Good Citizen silver class and has been said to be very well behaved - even though sometimes I disagree! When I first started dog training I was nervous, I thought that I wasn’t going to be as good as everyone else and make a fool of myself but actually I feel now that I have trained my dog as well as everyone else and have achieved a lot and the experience is amazing.
