For many months now, Orso has been going to a group conformation class that the Herzon family of Chambray Labradors puts on twice a week. We try to make it both nights – class is always held on Tuesdays and Thursdays – and have a pretty steady routine. We get there, we unload all our doggie stuff, we let Orso pee and we go straight to his handler, Jessie Herzon, place a slobber rag in one of her hands and Orso in the other. We then walk away and relax while Jessie and Orso do all the work under the guidance of Jessie’s dad, Sandy Herzon. Every once in a while, we get there early and I work with him to warm him up but this doesn’t happen often since I can’t seem to get Orso to work for me for purposes of conformation as nicely as he does for Jessie. I am humble enough to admit when I am not good at something.
Below are 3 video clips from tonight’s class. Many thanks to the Herzon family for all their efforts in developing Orso into such a great show dog! Enjoy!
