Hi I'm new. First let me say that I have 1 puppy that is a little over 6 months old. I have had him for a little over 3 months. Ok anyway he Is a cockapoo. right now he is 10.1 pounds he should not get anymore then 12 pounds. Half Cocker spainel and half poodle. He can jump very high. He can jump onto counches he jumps off our deck, and many other things. I can tell he loves to jump. So I was wondering if he would be able to start practicing jumping for contest. I was doing a little today by useing this rod. He got it the first time but I could really not get him to do as well as he did that 1st time. If I have a dog that would be able to join those contest can anyone tell me how to trian him? Thanks any help would be great!
