Havejust passed the Kennel Clubs Bronze award which I am sooooooooo chuffed about after being told time and time again that you cant train Basset Hounds!!!!
He was an angel, even started gently licking the assessor whilst she was inspecting him to ensure he could be handled!!!!
Needless to say Hugo had a lovely meal of best beef tripe, liver and dog sausages when we got home!!!

The certificate is on pride of place on the mantle piece!!!!


We are moving onto Silver now and attending ring craft lessons as I would like to have a crack at showing so if anyone has any tips on showing Bassests .....

:D

GOOD BOY HUGO!
;)
Good luck with your silver.

I'm going to try and get Snoopy the Bronze during the summer time. I think the recall might let us down though :rolleyes:

Yay, congrats! Jasmine got her bronze star a couple of weeks ago, so I can understand your joy. We're way off our silver, down stay for 10 minutes - not sure we'll ever get there and she really isn't much for fetching anything other than her fluffy pencil case stuffed with sausage. I'm sure Hugo will do you proud though!

Thanks all for your lovely messages :rolleyes: , I think I will have to put ALOT of time and effort into the silver as Hugo like other Bassets does not do recall which I despair with and will only fetch stuff in the house!!!!
I am also starting ring craft classes and agility soon which I am thinking will get a laugh as Bassets are not automatically thought as agile dogs but Hugo can jump well and is very supple so we will be proving them all wrong as I know there are alot of Bassets doing very well at agility!
I think he will love it!!!
